Rear park sensor false alarm

Post by mikeswe » Thu Jan 17, 2019 8:11 pm

Today when I reversed out of the garage the sensor worked normally.
Then at lunch with a cold outside the rear alarm went off immediately when I moved into reverse gear (nothing behind the car).



Then after driving it for a while I tested it again and backed towards a wall, it worked fine again.



Somebody else had this issue?

I get front bumper sensors going off occasionally

As long as it's not permanent then nothing to worry about

sometime believe it or not they just need cleaning, I've had one or two false alarms and after cleaning the sensor it worked fine. With all the Salt on the road the moment making cars dirtier it's probably not helping
