One of the sensors is a duffer.

Stick it in reverse with the ignition on and stick your ear to the sensors, good ones make a bat like clicking noise duffers do nowt..T:

I have the same problem!

just read up on it in the manual, and apparently if you have a towhitch enabled, it disables the parking sensors!

I guess that the towhitch sticks out further that the bumper, therefor rendering the parking sensors useless?

Nope, If you plug into the towing socket it disables the parking sensors. (via a microswitch I guess?) Nothing to do with having a towbar.

Longbeap = shagged sensor! T:

Well I had a listen to all my sensors today and I can here them all clicking but I'm still getting the warning tone. When I engage reverse gear for a moment I get the normal tone but then the failure tone comes in. ????? :confused:
