2008 Volvo S60 D5 manual deisel. Experiencing intermitant disengagement

Customer Question

2008 Volvo S60 D5 manual deisel. Experiencing intermitant disengagement of rear parking sensor system. Will operate satisfactorily for a while but then suddenly becomes disengaged and message on dash 'PARKING ASSIST SERVICE REQUIRED' ironically this started to occur after a very recent service. Could this have been caused when the engineer servicing the vehicle switched off the 'SERVICE REQUIRED' message on the computer being displayed prior to service being carried out? Or is one of the sensors on the blink?

Hello Enesd,

Thank you for responding to my question however I do not quite understand the three descriptions you outline.

Can the problem be corrected without the need to place the vehicle in the hands of a specialist ?

I had hoped that it may just a simple problem with a loose connection to the wiring located in the cargo/boot area ?

No is not simple you need scanner to know what sensor to replace plus you need to reset system most the time one of the sensor fails or wiring going to sensor behind bumper goes bad . You must remove bumper to gain access
