I have factory fitted Park Pilot on my Vectra Estate (56 Plate) with both Front & Rear sensors and itís been working fine until today.
This afternoon I came to start the car but the car battery was dead, suspecting the battery has been on the way out for the last few months (itís still the original GM battery from when the car was new so almost 5 years old), I managed to jump start it and drove it down to my local Kwik-Fit as it was the only place open at this time on a Saturday.
I reversed the car as I parked up outside Kwik-Fit, the sensors worked normally, so I donít think jump starting the car has caused me the problem. Next, Kwik-Fit came out and fitted a new battery, I thought everything was now all sorted, but when I came to park the car at home again, the parking sensors started to beep as soon as I put it into reverse which is odd because they donít usually beep as Iím not near any obstacles, so I just ignored it. A few hours later when I went out in the car again, it continued to beep while I was driving down the road for no good reason, I knew at this point something wasnít quite right and ended up having to press the park pilot button on the dash to turn the system off. Now, whenever the system activates, I just get the Control indicator light flash on the instrument panel and I donít get any beeping, even if there is an obstacle in the way?
Does anyone know what could be wrong, what caused it and how to fix it?
