I got stuck in a snow drift and it is 5 degrees outside. I put the car in reverse and really had to press down almost all the way on the accelerator and was able to back out. As I was doing this, a whole bunch of warning messages popped up on my dash board. Lane Departure failure, power steering failure, hill-start assist failure, forward collision warning failure and a few others. I have seen threads about "Christmas lights" coming up on dashboard. I feel like mine is different because it happened when I was stuck in snow and really had to put stress on the engine in extremely cold weather to get the car out of the snow. I was on a rural road and I didn't realize the road was not plowed and that is how I got stuck.
I drove the 18 miles home, the car seemed to be completely fine driving wise, and am hoping the system will reset itself.
I will call my dealer, of course, I had a B1 service yesterday and was just there, but wanted to know if anyone has experienced this and whether this is an electronic malfunction or something else.

Just drove from Harrisburg, Pa to Nashua,NH in the snow this week end in my 2015 ADV. The ACC and CMBS stopped working and a warning to clean off the Radar unit. On the ride back when I stop at the light at my exit the dash went nuts and keep warning me about an approaching object or collision, not quit sure the exact wording. I was completely stopped and there was no way anything could be approaching. After I started to move the warming went out. When I got home and put the car in reverse all the parking sensors, both front and rear , went off even thou nothing was there. Two days later when I drive the MDX to get it washed everything was fine.
One thing I will say is the MDX did great in the bad weather. I was in everything from freezing rain to packed snow and temps from the low teens to the high thirty s.

Brought car to dealer. They reset the warning system. They said that when I was spinning my wheels in reverse at a high rate, the warning systems can malfunction and that is what most likely happened. Everything seems to be fine now.
