    Exclamation Parking Sensors

    Can you buy each parking sensor individually?T

    Think I've damaged one with the pressure washer (and before the sarccy comment 'saying not to wash them with a pressure washer' comes along, I wasn't. Certainly not directing the jet at them).

    Cheers,
    Insignia VX-Line Nav CDTI 170.

    Yes and look at Ebay.de searching for PDC Vectra.

    It's genuine ones Gary has

    Don't worry bud it's more than likely that a touch of water has gotten in to one of them....chances are it'll dry out and be ok. I'll take a looky at them tomorrow for you

    They do go occasionally, I've had to replace the two outter rear ones on mine now where they sit right behind the rear wheels so pick up the most water, dirt etc. About £43 each roughly either from Ebay or if you talk very nicely to your dealer about the same.

    Good news is they don't need any kind of re-programming, completely plug and play.

    Thanks all. The problem seems to have rectified itself - parking sensors back to normal.

    Yeah m8 that may have been my issue.

    Cheers Ian, thought I had damaged it. Another bill I didn't expect to pay. Glad I don't now (so far) - hope it doesn't return tomorrow.

    It does happen now and then due to large volume of water (jetwashes, etc) or cold weather (ice) and more often than not, after a couple of days things return to normal.
