    Hello there

    I have a problem with my front/rear parking sensors as its not coming up on the screen when in reverse or going forward as it used to change automatically when in music or any other mode but now instead the 'P' button below the screen just flashes and beeps if that helps, image below when it worked few days ago and also the 'P' button under the screen lit up in amber??

    I would say a sensor maybe down, needs scanning to ascertain what's shut the system down.
