Another set of rear parking sensors are dead... What gives guys?
So shortly after picking up my beloved GT in October, I took it to a local garage to get the parking sensors fixed. Rather than tearing it down and starting the diagnostics to find the culprit, they fitted a whole new electromagnetic strip to the inside of the rear bumper and disconnected the old system.
Well that worked great for about 6 weeks... It's now not working.. I get a single bleep when I engage reverse gear, then either nothing whatsoever, or spurious beeps warning me that I'm 5 meters away from an object.. In short, it's borked...
I've just fired off an email to the garage that fitted the new system for me to ask them to take a look... But is there something it's likely to be?
The battery tray has been out a few times recently, but reverse light is still working fine and the box itself gives the beep to signal that reverse is engaged so I don't think there's damage to the switch... Could it be water ingress screwing things up?
