    Default Agro with front parking sensors, Help

    Right, I have fitted aftermarket parking sensors to a switch in the car, now, I have wired them to an ignition live and they all work fine when the ignition is on but engine off but when the engine is on i get a constant beep. any ideas anyone, oh and i also tried direct to the battery too. the company that supplied them said it was the Canbus only i cant see how this would affect them tbh. where did anyone else wire them too and not get this problem please....

    hmm, maybe the engine running is causing some sort of interference if it works fine with just ignition on. Did you bench test them before fitting? Maybe you could test them one by one, disconnecting the one your not testing from the module, by pulling the sensors out from the bumper and see if they work normally a foot or so away?

    Done as you said Chris, tested each one and all fine with no engine running, as soon as you start it there's a constant beep... fitted them to the below fuse Dean if that sheds any light...
