    Default system check/aaaah!!

    How or what can i put in-line to stop power bleed through from the bulb/light check system!, I thought id solved my intermittent peeep from the parking sensors but its still the same, Ive found that with a meter there's a power/heartbeat of 2-3 volts going to the sounder for the sensors, When i part the brake & reverse wires from the system the meter drops so is there anything i can put in line to the sounder/bleeper to stop this!!.

    No expert but, is it 2-3 volts going to it which shouldn't, but is enough to make it make a noise ? and is usually 12v when on ? if so maybe a resistor, so the 2-3v is not enough to make it sound, but a resisted 12v is.....if that makes any sense whatsoever lol

    Exactly! that's what its doing, So you reckon i need a resistor/s in-line from the brake & reverse feed wires, If you put a meter across the bleeper it shows a 2-3v heartbeat from the system check, This must upset the sensors & cause a peeep that sounds like a short or similar, The best thing about it is the voltage only shows in the bleeper plug/wires.
