Service side impact detection system. Has anyone gotten this message and if so is there a non service fix like a fuse perhaps. Mine is a 2014 verano turbo. Thank u

I'm unaware of any simple fix, but you may want to check the fuse, sensors for any type of blocked on the outside, that the cable harness and connections are clean and no cracks. The module may have gone bad, but it with all the other components may not have any owner test that can be done.

Thank you, I am having a difficult time determining which fuse is connected to the side impact warning alert. If you could help me locate it that would be ever so helpful. Thank you again. 2014 Buick Verano

Sorry I don't have a 2014 Buick Verano, but the owners manual should help.

Your problem is most likely a failed side detection module which is mounted behind the rear bumper and gets sprayed with water and road chemicals when the roads are wet. The modules are poorly designed and not water tight. Moisture gets into them, they corrode and fail. I have had to replace modules 3 times in the past 3 years in my Verano.
