Reverse Parking Sensors

Hello all, I am new to this having just bought a GT today! I bought it 2nd hand everything is bang on except reverse parking sensors. When I put it into reverse gear I get a short beep then a long warning beep for about 3-4 seconds as though I am about to hit something although there is nothing to hit. Any help with this fault and correcting it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Steve.

I dont know what sensors are on these cars but i install after market parking sensors.
But check the sensors make sure they are sitting in there mounts properly, all flush. as if the centre dot is touching the sides of the housing it with not work and will indicate that something is to close.
Also check there is no mud or dirt on them or in-between them and the mount.
On all the sensors i have worked on the sensor (the center Round bit), clicks into a housing that pushes into the bumper. Some cars with factory sensors only have a sensor and the clicks into the bumper itself so does not have the surround but, but being flush and clean still counts.
