Crazy parking sensors

I am having a bit of a problem with my parking sensors.
They will work if i try them as soon as i switch the engine on.

If i try them a few minutes later i will either get one short beep followed by a constant tone or i will get beeps similar to indicating that i am near an object.

If i try them later again, all i get is the single beep followed by a constant tone.

Any ideas where to start?

Hi huw .... start by looking at the connectors to each of the sensors ... its usually one of the connectors has become dislodged or corroded ... clean it up and it should be OK, otherwise disconnect each one until the faulty one is identified ... assuming the sensors themself show no signs of damage.

hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
