HI

 

When i engage my packing aid, all i get is a continuous beep.

I have removed all rear sensors and cleaned but to no avail.

 

There is no flashing light on the dash so I am a bit miffed??

 

Would anybody have any experience of same problem?

Did you disconnect all sensors then try it without? if so if its not changing then it sounds like the module is at fault.

I disconnected each one in turn , cleaned and replaced. I didn't activate the system without any or all of the sensors unplugged.

Should I be trying that do you think?

Also do you know where the module is, as I was told it's in the side panel in the boot but having opened that up, I cannot see it

yeah you should disconnect each in turn then start the system up that way if you unplug a bad one you can narrow it down, it could be just a bad wire.

 

As for the panel, normally its behind the left hand side panel in the bottom most corner of the wing.

Thanks I'll give that a go then

It's just that I read somewhere that if a sensor is disconnected, the system throws up a fault anyway.
That's the reason I didn't do it originally the way you said.

There always the option that it's one of the front sensors, but they look a bugger to remove!

Remove the whole rear sub-loom and check for connector and wiring integrity. (known problem).

The loom disconnects at the FS lower frame where it exits via a grommet.

Check the front ones very carefully for bubbling paint. If any have paint blisters then that will be what's causing your issue.

I have a feeling it is the front causing the problem as all the back sensors seem to be pulsing as if they are working.
Problem is the front ones are not as easy to get out I fear. Do I have to remove the wheel arch liner and or under tray?
Also still have not managed to locate module...

The module is, I believe, behind the FS boot side access panel.
