2016 Overland Blind Spot Detectors

I had my Overland in the body shop the last few days to repair some minor paint damage on my rear bumper. I picked up the vehicle today right as they closed and noticed on the drive home that the blind spot detectors are not functioning properly and they were working fine when I dropped my Jeep off. For the paint repair, they had to remove my rear bumper. I know this means they had to remove the back up sensors (which were put in a bit crooked). I'm wondering if the blind spot detectors are also located in the same area. Are there any drawings I can look at to find out where the blind spot detectors are located? If nothing else, I'd like to make sure they're connected correctly in case it's a quick fix. I've already called them but I will not be able to take my Jeep back until Friday at the earliest and wanted to see if I can figure out what the problem might be.

The radars are located on the side. They snap/clip to the back of the facia.

Thank you for the image. I'll check and make sure they're connected correctly. Any chance they need to be rotated a certain way to work properly or as long as they're clipped in they should work fine? Would there be any type of "reset" after they've been disconnected and connected back? If the body shop gives me hard time, I'm just hoping that if I have to take it to the dealership they're not going to tell me it's due to something the body shop did.

Actually, I just looked under the rear bumper. It doesn't look like I can see the radars without actually removing the bumper. =(

As far as I know there is just one way to clip them in, and I don't think you can see them without pulling the facia.... but that may differ by model year.
