    The reverse parking sensors have just started playing up.

    It was all fine until a couple of days ago. Now, when it goes into reverse I get the initial beep, and then a constant beep tone - even if the sensors are miles away from anything.

    It is really annoying!

    Has anybody else had this? And is there an easy fix for it?

    I can't imagine it's anything too dreadful, as sometimes it does still work properly. Bah.

    Have you tried cleaning them?

    Yes I did. But I only wiped them over with a cloth :think:

    To be fair, when I did that, they worked properly straight after, but then not since - so I thought that was just a coincidence.

    Right, I've cleaned them again this morning and they're still playing up.

    Seriously, any help at all?

    This beep is driving me flippin mental :think:

    Same happened to our 53 A6, I was going to look at it, but the front end of the car got wiped out by a bad parker, and as if by magic when the car came back from the repairers, they were working again!! I think I'd check all the connections around the front bumper first (more dirt etc I would think)

    It's now five hours later and it's all working perfectly. Stupid things!

    Has it been wet when you last drove it ? If so, could be a connection problem . . . but I know what you mean, the same symptoms happened to me, intermitant before stopping altogether

    Nope, dry as a bone. Maybe I've accidentally switched them to shuffle, like on my iPod. So they work at random...


    :huh:
