A3 parking sensors - should it still work with a disconnected sensor?

    Heres a quick question

    My car was in the local Audi garage yesterday for errors on the parking sensors - this was diagnosed as a failed rear left sensor which was then disconnected whilst waiting for a replacement. The system then appeared to work fine yesterday afternoon with the remaining 3 sensors.

    However this morning it is back to a single long continuous tone when I engage reverse - is this correct or has another sensor failed? The Audi garage seem confused!

    Did the sensor have a snow covering ??? :)

    The truth is until some checks with VAGCOM no one will know. So until the parts come in it looks like you will have to stop reversing by ear :)

    Chris..

    PS I love my park sensors too.

    I thought my parking sensors were acting up this morning - a constant beep when I knew I was nowhere near the wall. Turned out to be pigeons too thick to fly away...
