    Evening gentlemen,

    Finally sourced some parking sensors for my 730Ld from a breaker today, got them fitted think everything would be good, but I've ran into a problem, the I-Drive still shows up with PDC faliure, now I've got down and listened to all of the sensors, you can hear all four front sensors click, but not one of the rear sensors click at all, is there anyway this would be a fuse or relay, if so which one. Or if there is another fault somewhere else. Help much appreciated because I want these working now.

    Regards

    Could be the PDC Module?

    This is what I'm worried about the most, would the module need coding to the car?

    Guys one thing I forgot to mention is I've got no continuous beep is this right? The i-Drive says "No acoustic warning available for Park Distance Control PDC" Have the problem checked by BMW service as soon as possible. Is it right I've got no continuous beep?

    Turns out this is the parking sensor control unit. Had it fault code read today, new one is on it's way.

    Hi, Can I ask if you have now fixed the problem. I have a 730D sport 2005 which has the same problem. Started with one of the rear sensors always indicating that there was something there when there wasn't and now we don't have any indication at all with the same warning as you being displayed 'No acoustic etc'
    This problem only happens when the car is wet, washing, rain, damp etc conditions. Once dry the system works ok.
