BMW 5 series E60 Parking Sensors failure

Hello. My Parking Sensors are driving me mad. Saturday they failed, front and back. Got the screen warning me. Tried a few things like WD40 etc, but nothing. Now, I receive no warning, but the Parking Sensor switch that turns them on and off flashes all the time.
But now. I occasionally receive all sort of strange messages. ABS failure, 4x4 failure, the speedometer zooms up to the top, the I-Trip turns itself on and off. I've just tried the car this morning the computer has asked for the the time and date. Like its done a complete re-boot.
And help out there!!!! Thank you

Welcome to the Werkz.

I'd start by totally disconnecting the battery for 20+ minutes. Hopefully when you reconnect it everything will have forgotten all the madness and behave normally. The other thing to check is the condition of the battery, make sure it isn't on its last legs, because all sorts of gremlins appear randomly when the battery is getting low on output voltage/current.


Riding in style
