Hmmm 147 reversing sensors.....

After a fortnight without turning a wheel I've been using my 147 again. Nice to be back in it after bombing around in a 11 year old Focus
Other than the usual brake 'clean up' going down the road the thing that caught my attention as not being quite right was the reversing sensors which now seem to have a mind of their own as to when they do or do not work.

If I bung it in reverse sometimes the 'beep' comes after a couple of feet reversing but other times not at all and, on occasion, they work immediately. Idiosyncratic Italian electrics? Well, maybe But I suspect it will be a simple fix.

Anyone else had this happen? I have yet to look into the problem closely (I imagine it's something to do with 'clever' electronics when selecting reverse....) so if anyone has an elegant solution to save me scratching my head too much it would be appreciated. Other than don't worry about it or disconnect them
