parking sensor failure?


got a parking sensor warning light on my dash.

I've tried disconnecting the battery and cleaning the sensors but to no avail.

can anyone suggest anything to sort it out?

It could be a dodgy earth connection. My Audi's got this problem intermittently. I haven't had a chance to sort it yet.

ive currently got the same issue after some so called towbar fitters managed to disable it after taking the bumper off. Ive narrowed the fault down to a particular sensor. If you select reverse to engage the parking sensors, run your finger over each sensor and if its OK you feel a slight clicking coming from the sensor.
