Might just need a quick wipe over. Mine do that occasionally because of dirt

It has happened to me as well with dirt. I painted mine with a brush (not paint) and got it too thick on a sensor. When it got dirty it happened to give false positive detections. That happened with rain drops too!

The solution was scratching a bit of the clearcoat of the specific sensor and now it works fine.

If your set is more sensitive to make it work through the bumper (detection distances imply it is) then a dirty bumper could justify the false detection. At least in my opinion...

Lol.. Looked closer found a pice of dried out bird crap, took it off then it seemed to work. Hope that was the problem. I couldn't see any of the tape had loosent, so that was not the problem

Hmmm, it seems bird poo can cause more issues than etching on the paintwork :) good to know its back up and running!

The problem seems to have returned, sometimes it beeps constantly, sometimes it works fine - pretty strange. 

I think i will have to give it a closer look - maybe just the cheap made in china crap that broke :D

If it is clean and still comes up with this issue, check the adhesion tape. It will take a lot of beating with moisture etc down there, so give it a look and let us know.
