    Hi guys need some help with an unusual problem. All of a sudden my parking beeper isn't working, reverse lights work and all sensor are clicking but the beeper is not beeping and so is useless. Any ideas what the problem is or even where the actual beeper is? ie dash/speaker/cluster. please help

    i had this problem last week all sensos were clicking reverse lights working just no beep.As a test i disconnected a sensor from rear so it would make the constant beep when put in reverse it didnt make that noise either.the gong is in the drivers foot well above accelerator pedal.it also serves the purpose of other warning beeps in the car which were still working on mine i replaced the gong in less than 2 minutes and worked a treat.£10 + p&p from quarry motors

    guys i am a collosal idiot, heres a lesson to always check your fuses!! my beeper is working now after i found out fuse #10 was missing, which actually is for the instrument cluster and only found it out because some lights wasn't lighting up. how silly, always check your fuses!
