    Hello ,have recently brought a 2001 a3 1.8t and hadnt noticed untill the other day that it had factory fitted parking sensors i put the car into reverse and it gave me one long continuous beep before going off and now does this 75% of the time when engaging reverse does anyone have any ideas of either how to make them work properly or to turn them off alltogether
    thanks matt

    Its probably got a sensor fault as they usually do a very short beep to confirm working & a longer beep when there's a fault.

    Check the sensors are plugged in properly as this can happen, if they are then need to get it on vagcom to check ideally.
