Good afternoon , you more then likely need a new detection sensor that detects the vehicles in the other lane , what you will need to have done is have the trouble codes checked in the module to see which sensor has failed and giving you the trouble code this way you will know which one you have to check out . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you
