    Hey,

    So when i select reverse i get one beep but thats it. when i move back into a wall dont get any beeps at all. When i come out of reverse it gives me another beep.

    checked other posts for related problems but couldnt seem to find any with similar issues. have seen a load with constant beeps and clicking from sensors but have had a listen to the individual sensors while in reversed but can hear any clicking from any of them..

    anyone got any ideas?

    my sensors were faulty but i did have 1 not clicking, As you have none clicking it would be very odd that they all have broken at the same time, i would say there is no power getting to them , But you say you do have a bleep ?? How odd

    To me they are not getting the signal correctly from the correct source .

    sorry i cant be of much help.

    That single 'bleep' is telling you there is a fault with PDC. Have the codes read on the car to see if it is the sensor or module.

    If the centres are clicking fine and you can't hear the corners clicking then it very much sounds like they are the ones causing you the problem, if you get a diagnostic scan done AND have the sensors checked under the live data readings this will confirm the fault

    Any BMW Independent specialist or main dealer will be able to do this for you.
