Got an interesting message on the instrument cluster when I started our PHEV this afternoon. Driver Assist System unavailable because camera was too hot. It isn't the first time it's happened but was able to take a snap shot of what the warning looks like. After driving maybe 10 minutes warning lights in the lower left went away.

Interesting. We can get some pretty hot days in California during the summer. I'm surprised it isn't more tolerant of that and that it had that specific of a diagnosis message.

We just came back yesterday from a trip to Monterey for a two night stay. Driving through the central valley temps reached up to 107 F on the display. No error message came up, I guess because air flow kept it cool enough. I chalk it up to significant heat soak when it is sitting outside in the sun.
