Hello guys,
Recently I began modding our 2021 Jeep renegade so far I've added a aftermarket grill and a bull bar. Unfortunately it seems the bull bar interferes with the Foward collision warning sensor.it was strange because after adding the bar and grill everything worked fine for several days before " service Foward collision sensor" showed up on the cluster screen.

so my plan is to relocate the sensor on to the bar itself which would move the sensor Foward roughly 4 inches from it's present location. So I was thinking about finding a male to female extension harness for the sensor but I'm not having any luck finding it. Second option is finding the male and female ends that match the sensor plug and building my own extension. If anyone can kind of point me in the right direction to find either of those two options I would really appreciate it.

I'm also thinking about purchasing alfaobd and either the obd link ex or mx+ however I can't seem to find the "grey" adapter everyone mentions. Can someone post a link?

Just an update I just ordered a obd link ex, 6 piece obd adapter set including the grey one, Alfaobd and the sgw bypass.

I also finally found the connectors to build my front radar extension harness.

My current plan is to relocate the fcw radar sensor to the bull bar and house it inside one of these waterproof boxes. I will Dremel out the shape so the sensor has a clear opening like how it's currently housed in the grill.

Clear the codes and see how it works. Spoke to a few Jeep service techs that think my plan will work.
