Hi all

Don't know if anyone can help here but my parking sensors have stopped working. When I select reverse there is no 'beep' unless I actually pull the gear stick back a little further...but still the sensors don't work! Is it likely to be a lose wire somewhere or expensive to get fixed?? I have a 2.0ltr Ghia 2003 if that helps!

the sensors get there power from the reverse lights, first thing to check is if the reverse lights are working when in reverse gear.

I've just been and checked, the reverse light does not come on - it only comes on for a brief moment when I pull the gear stick back a little further...

if you need a new switch they are as little as 10 and are fitted it around 30 mins.

Thank you so much for your help here!
A new switch and all works great again! :-)

As a matter of interest, where exactly does this switch get fitted?
