    Having bought the car in january my PDC system has never worked, just one long beep when i put the car in reverse.

    However today they just started working , it seems that the might have finally thawed out enough.

    Anyway just to let people know that if they are having problems it might clear up soon .

    Funny you should say this, as mine sometimes works as it should i.e regular beep increasing as you get near an object, and sometimes just one long beep, never thought of it being temperature related

    i've got an e46 330ci that had this problem when i was in the process of purchasing it. the dealer ran some checks and one of the sensors was faulty. having said that you will get a continuous beep if there is ice covering the sensors. hope this is helpful.

    Mine started misbehaving about 2 years ago one night when it was very icy, I took them all out and put them back one at a time and they worked perfect til yesterday afternoon. Left the car parked in the street for an hour then went to reverse into my driveway and beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, constant beep. "I know what I will be doing tomorrow" I thought to myself, got up this morning, drove forward, stopped put it into reverse and it was working perfect again , if I get another 2 years before it happens again I will be happy
