Default Forward sensing module

I had to have my windscreen replaced and was informed that the forward sensing module was faulty and needed to be replaced. The Volvo garage are charging a huge amount of money. Has anyone else had to have this replaced and have you managed to find a none Volvo garage that can do it?

was it ok before they touched it?

Are you sure it doesn't just need calibrating , this is mandatory after the windscreen has been replaced .

Yes it was fine as far as I knew. I am in dispute with autoglass over the issue but the car has been to a Volvo garage and they have said the module is faulty which is why it won't calibrate.

you would know if it was faulty, it would have flagged up a message in the instrument panel ..

Autoglass said that when they did a pre scan it showed some faults but they didn't tell me as sometimes the faults are intermittent and put themselves right which is why I'm in dispute as it seems to me that they broke it. In the meantime it is definitely not working and I need it replaced and Volvo want to charge 800. I've spoken to a.couple of garages who can't replace it so was wondering if anyone else has found a garage who can do it or if I have to get ripped off by Volvo 😡

You will get a very clear message in your instrument panel if s not working , if you have not seen that it means it was ok when you handed the car over to them. Have volvo seen it? Have they checked the signals going to it ? the windscreen company is more likely to have damaged the cables or plug than the instrument itself . NO one can deal with these safety systems except the trained experts , that would be a dealer ... Its all about Mitigation these days .
