    Hi all, im new here so trying to leave my first post. I have an issue with the rear sensors. they were all working fine then the beep noises started increasing in speed even if there was nothing behind me, some days later the noises was then a constant beeeeeep (lol) and now when i put in to reverse there is no sound at all from the sensors.

    Can someone advise what i need to do or check.
    Thanks

    You can have a diagnostic check performed to see what the problem is with the PDC module. Ask for live diagnostics at you garage.

    Do a search on the site using the terms 'Park Distance Control' or 'PDC'. These threads mention how you listen for the clicking sound.

    thanks for that, i did the click test and all the sensors are working fine. I noticed that the sensors are not exactly aligned, maybe a few mm off, could this cause the problem?
