Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Did they tell you which code numbers are stored?


Customer: replied 8 months ago.
See exact verbiage from mechanic.
"Inspected vehicle and verified concern, scanned for DTC's found rear crash sensor fault. Performed diagnosis and access sensor. Found wiring connector broken at sensor, quoted repair declined."

If you paid for this diag, then the repair order should of shown a trouble code. If not you need to bring that up. There is not a physical rear crash sensor. It is actually the second row crash sensor for side impact. There are 2, one on both sides at the base of the C pillar.
