Hi

A forum for new members to introduce themselves to the rabble already onboard. Not compulsory!
Tell us a little about yourself, lie if you have to but keep it to just an introduction, not a car discussion.

Hi and thanks for the add :) having a few issues with the car at the moment and was wondering if any one could run a diagnostic on it, Widnes area but don’t mind travelling.

The main issue is with the parking sensors just need to identify which one as failed

Hi Benson and :welc: to the forum,

I am too far away from you really to help but there are members in your area with diagnostic equipment so I expect one of them will pop up soon. While you are waiting have a look round the forum from the Board Index above. There is a wealth of information, advice, entertainment and amusement to be found, mostly in the Off Topic Chat Lounge (OTCL) so have a nose and join in anything that takes your fancy. Good luck with the parking sensors. :)

Hi, and :welc: to the forum.

One way that MAY work is, when the parking sensors are active (but the car cannot move) carefully touch a lightweight screwdriver to each sensor. You should feel a vibration from each working sensor, and nothing from any that are not. This does NOT mean that a sensor has failed, merely that it is not working. It is not unknown for there to be a wiring failure in the sensor loom.

Thanks for the warm welcome and look forward to using the forums. With regards the parking sensors i understood that when the car had a issue with any of the sensors it switched the system off and displayed the fault. With the parking sensors issue it also disables the self park and blind spot options. I did try various options to listen to each sensor however it appeared none of the front or back sensors were active making it more difficult to fault find :)

Thanks again
