Hi all and a Happy New Year !!!!

I have a 2001 BMW 530d Sport with the M-Kit, and its beautiful too look at and even wonderful too drive

How ever i'm having such a headache with the god damn parking sensors!!!

Can someone please explain too me why is it that the when the temperature outside drops to near freezing the sensors work a treat and when temperature is lets say above 5 degrees they don't !!!!

i've had all the sensors replaced and checked and they all come out okay

Can someone please tell me or point me in the right direction of the fault ????

thanks

the colder it is the less resistance there is in the sensor and everything will work honky dory.. when it gets warmer the sensor builds up an amount of resistance.. ive had the same prob with my cousins car like the car needs to adapt or something..
