You're driving along at 70, interstate, heading west around 10am. Cloudy day, temp around 80.
Beep! "FEB: Front Radar Obstructed" warning appears on panel between tach and speedo.
The "collision warning system inactive" icon light comes on.
After a few minutes, the warning message goes off; the collision warning system light goes off.
Happens again after maybe ten minutes.
Never seems to happen on slower, country road driving.

I have the very same issue with my 2020 Nissan Pathfinder. The car is right at 2 yrs old, has 15K miles or so, I don't do long distance driving, but recently made 4 trips over the Causeway Bridge-(27 miles in length, over Lake Ponchatrain) where I tried to use the cruise control. After 5 or 10 mins driving, the Front Radar Obstructed warning came on and the collision waring system inactive message came off. 5 min or so later, the warning went off. I again tried the cruise control to have the same thing happen. No bad weather , no puddles or A/C water drips in any of the cases, no cars in front of me in any of the cases. I took the car into the dealer, who said they could not find anything wrong, they feared it was the Causeway Bridge itself causing the problem but they would call an offsite engineer(?). They called me a day later to and advised the engineer they spoke with had no remedy and agreed with the technician that the problem was due to some "mystery" occurring on the Causeway Bridge. Solution being not to use the cruise control when driving the causeway or to turn off the safety features.... I emailed Nissan consumer affairs who did call
me, acknowledged he researched the Nissan repair notes when I took it in, but since he was NOT a technician, had to go with the word of the dealers' notes-the cruise control was NOT going to work on the Causeway Bridge (he added may be due to speed traps???) He said since he was not a technician he could offer no solution . His cusumer affairs remedy was to return to my dealer again or to have the cruise control checked out at another dealer. When I said I would have never purchased the car to begin with had I known the cruise control was faulty-and did I need to hire an attorney to get it fixed, he offered to check into finding out if there was a possibility of Nissan buying the car back...Now, why would they want to buy the car back instead of fixing the problem. I'm so disillusioned about Nissan.
