    hi folks new to the site, recently sold my evo 5 and bought a 525m sport, loving the car so far but as it happens im finding a few wee faults that the previous owner didnt tell me about...

    my pdc hasnt worked since i purchased the car.. the car emmits a long beep when reverse is engaged and the light flashes on the pdc button..... i read on the internet that the sensors can sometimes stop working.. i tired the test (putting the car in reverse with the engine off and listening for the sensors clicking) they all seem to be doing so...

    is there anything else i should be checking for that could be faulty???

    If all the sensors click then you will need to get the fault codes read for the car, if this shows nothing then you need to have the live data looked at, one of the sensors won't be measuring correctly.
