Parking sensors
« on: March 21, 2014, 07:51:01 pm »
Hi all,
Brill site already used it to do some odd jobs on car and saved a few quid.
My parking sensors in the last week have decided not to work,
When I go into reverse or turn on parking sensors by switch ,I get a constant beeeeep followed by flashing button.
I have checked front and back sensors for loose wires ,marks on sensors non,. water under the passenger seat all dry.They started working yesterday and now there playing up again.Im trying to determine if is front or back sensors the speaker making the warning noise is the back one.Any ideas .Is it possible to turn them off permantly (fuse).Althrough I want them to work.
Thanks

I meant no water under passenger seat.I have blasted all wires with WD40.Not sure if that has helped or hindered.

You can use VCDS/Vagcom to interrogate the park assist module this will tell you which sensor is not responding, it's a very useful tool to have if you DIY

No it just uses the rear sounder for the fault tone, have you done the tick test?

Don't worry that the Galaxy is not on the list of vehicles, just be sure the lead is compatible with your operating system, XP, windows7 etc.
