    Default Parking Sensors

    Hello,

    I have a 2003 Vectra C that is factory fitted with front and rear parking sensors. The buzzer of the sensor stopped working and I cannot find its location. Anyone can advise where is it located?

    Thanks

    You should have two beepers... one for front and one for rear.... so you know which sensors are triggering.

    Thanks. What is the CIm?

    Regarding the rear buzzer, so it is inside the car inside the area around the arieal?

    Well I have an original fit ParkPilot system and the beepers sound to be front right and rear right when I'm in the driver's seat (RHD).

    I've never had a reason to go looking for them but I would assume both are within the cabin but for the rear at least I'd be thinking either near the ParkPilot module (mounted on the forward side of the rear fusebox (REC) or possibly behind the headlining above the heads of the rear seat passengers.

    The front one I'd guess might be behind the trim panel in the driver's footwell (RHD),but I stress in both cases I am only guessing based on where the sound in mine appears to come from and a bit of common sense.

    No idea if there are standard locations or if they swap sides for LHD or RHD cars.

    The rear speaker is just to the left of the roof aerial between the roof and lining, the front sounds like its coming from the steering column area which is also where the CIM is located I believe.
