Hi Martin,

One faulty sensor wouldn't knock the others out.  You could check a fuse or look at the connections on the module.

Otherwise as Jim says, you could need a new one.

Regards

Peter.

Peter sorry to correct you but one duff sensor will indeed knock the other three out.I bought my x type with that very same problem.you have to get your ear right up to the sensors to hear which ones are clicking.only cost 10.00 for a new one.easy fix.

True Gareth, in the sense that if one sensor goes out it takes the whole system down.

Having said that, I believe I'm right in saying that if you select reverse and put your ear close to them each in turn, you will still get a click click click that should let you know that one's ok.......not really scientific I know but the best test available without code reader

Thanks for the help chaps, still not got around to checking them yet, will update when I have, thanks.

Hi, I finally got round to looking at these yesterday, I took the module out and it was corroded around the connections, I cleaned these up but still no joy. I got my multimeter to it and I have power going into the module when in reverse, but no clicking at the sensors. Does this sound like I need a new module?

Thanks, Mart

the reverse senors have a clip which you have to unplug, this is easy to do.... when done put your meter on the pins of the plug to test for power going to the each sensor. this will show if you have a break in the cable. that is when you have another module replaced,(if needed)   as you stated that it was corroded!  if power then you know that the sensor is faulty.
