Hello again Bob -

Thank you for your reply - no worries at all.. I have switched us out of the Chat system to the QA system - it works fine here..

Ok - so yes- that is a sign of a fault - and usually / often its just one of the sensors thats failed..

Best way to test ( other than plug in diagnostics - which it may come to - but -- ) try this..

Have the ignition of - engine off...select reverse -and then go to the sensors at the back - place your ear to each one... you should hear a rapid clicking sound - as each one pulses... indicating its working - Test each one. If you find one that isn't doing anything - thats a faulty one - though the wiring to it should be checked - then deal with as you find.

If you dont find any thats faulty - or- none of them are ticking -then its a control module fault for the system - usually meaning it will need replacing... So thats the way to work through this Bob -

If it comes to suspect module- the garage would test it with a plug in diagnostic to confirm , then go from there.. as needed..

Im very pleased to have helped / advised you - If you need anything else at all - by all means get back to me - Im always happy to help more if needed..
