    Hi all, my problem is with the PDC, when i engage reverse i get no audiable sound at all, i have checked the sensors when in reverse(engine off) and all the sensors click away ok but no beeping in the car, only had the car 6 months(second hand) wondered if they may have been disabled if that is possible? I checked the PDC module and is all connected ok but not sure where the beep is supposed to originate from.
    Could anyone pls shed any light on this for me it would be greatly appreciated as the girlfriend also drives the car(if ya know what i mean).
    Cheers in advance, Lee.

    First port of call should be getting the fault codes read for the PDC system, as there is no sound even when reverse is first selected it rules out a sensor failure.

    Did the PDC module appear to be dry?

    Yeah, totally dry, not knowing where the sound is emitted stops me checking for any voltage increase at the speaker or this is what i thought i could try??
