my front and rear sensors on my 'c' max work fine when the weather is dry and warm, but as soon as it rains they do not work

Hello again -

Thank you for your reply and further info..

With this situation - given the sensors operation are affected by rain - you must have one or more that is faulty - or, water getting into the wiring / connections to them.

You can get a faulty individual sensor - letting rain into the sensor etc - and that is enough to throw them all -

A god way to test the sensors is to switch them on - have them operating and then place your ear close to each one.. you should hear a ticking sound as they pulse... If you dont hear one ticking, that one is usually faulty needing replacing - but again , check the wiring to it - you need to gain access to the rear of the sensor to test / check... Really its only a simple check for wire / connection integrity - and cure any issue you might see / have - other than that - renew the suspect sensor/s.

Im very pleased to have helped / advised you - If you need anything else at all - by all means get back to me -
