159 2.2 JTS - electrical gremlins

Strange, I haven't had many electrical issues with my good old 156, but the 159 just started playing up this winter.

1) Parking sensor failure. Dealer says sensor is broken and needs to be replaced, they want ~200 euros for part & labor. Funny enough, the sensor works from time to time and even funnier, the sensors sometimes stay engaged even after I move out of reverse. It's very strange to get sudden beeps when stopped at a traffic light and the guy behind is just getting too close.

2) Hill holder failure. This comes and goes, without any specific rule. Funny again, it only occurs when the short beam headlights are on, never when they are off. The only code found on examiner is C1134 - "Gear Shift position short to ground", but the dealer is adamant all sensors are fine.

3) A couple of weeks ago, the autodimming on the rear mirror stopped working. It has come back in the meanwhile though.

Any ideas? Battery, clutch/brake switches, ECU?
