Angry Reverse parking sensor probs

Hi, until recently all was well with the reverse parking sensors on my 53 plate E46. Now all I get is a continuous beep for about 5 seconds and then nothing, not even a warning if I'm right up to an object. Advice would be much appriciated!!

one of your sensor has been damaged. pehaps just a scratch from a bush can do it! unplug each sensor in turn untill problem stops then replace the one sensor. hope this helps..

How are the parking sensors removed? Are they pulled out or pushed in?

Hi Mike, my parking sensors are on the rear bumper and I used a drift to knock them in toward the car, once the damaged one was loose it's easy to take the wiring off, put the wiring on the new one and re-attach, it's just possible to get a hand inside the bumper, but make sure your model is OK for this.

Hi, did you manage to get your parking sensors working?
Was it a faulty sensor?
I am getting the same problem (continuous beep for about 5 seconds then they do not work).
Thanks
Mike

Parking Sensors gives safety to your vehicles and keeps your vehicle in excellent condition. This has been mainly designed for SUV's, trucks, vans. The poor rear visibility of many cars, SUVs and other large vehicles increases the risk of hitting obstacles like small object, or even people when driving in reverse. With backup sensors installed, drivers can lower the risk of collision when backing up or parallel parking. So Using could bring safety to your car.

Cars with reverse sensors results in lazy drivers that relies on the sensor to warn them of any object behind the car.. thus when they reverse w/o really checking, the ramp their cars right into railings or objects... rather not have sensors.

Again with parking help, here they are called valets - who knew!
