Parking sensors will look similar to those in the Pic

The Heater control control is a fairly easy D.I.Y fix for someone with some mechanical apptitude judging by Members feedback,

Might be just a simple fix for the sensors

I can't say what a garage repair would be as I have no experiance of these repairs.

You could try phoning someone local to get a quote.

Hopefully other Members might offer some advice

Parking sensors

Parking sensors are a technology that allows the driver of an automobile, truck, or commercial vehicle to be alerted to nearby objects in their path. Parking sensors are also known as backup sensors, parking sonar or just sonar depending on the automaker. While there are variations in the design and features of these systems, the basic design puts sensors in the vehicle's bumper or on brackets. These sensors send ultrasonic waves at 40,000 times per second that detect obstacles behind the vehicle. A controller installed inside the vehicle then receives the signal from the sensors and transmits it to a speaker that emits a tone, or to a combination speaker and display unit. As it results, the first invention of ultrasonic Parking sensors has been invented in Italy by electronic Engineer Massimo Ciccarello and Professor Architect Ruggero Lenci.[1] (Italian patent n. 1196650 requested at the Ministry of Industry in Rome December 13, 1984, issued November 16, 1988).

Dunno what the relevance of the above post is?

You may have a faulty sensor that has an electrical gremlin meaning it is sensing an object whenever switched on. If its put on the Renault "clip" it will be able to tell you if you have a faulty sensor.
