    Default Parking sensors

    Went out to the car tonight and when I popped it into reverse the parking sensors were beeping at me so I turned them off (thinking it may be some ice/snow in the way). When I get where I was going and popped it in reverse again the symbol for the parking sensors was flashing on the dash....now I've looked in the handbook and it 'says' that this is due to the build up of ice or snow and should work fine when it's all gone.

    Has anybody else had this happen to them or know why the system does this? To protect itself or something? I've just never had it happen to me before

    Cheers

    I dont think there's any way you could protect them, without putting it in a garage over night etc?

    Heated parking sensors for future vaux me thinks

    This is still happening. Had a look at the sensors this morning when I got to work and there appears to be nothing wrong with them. Before I left for work the parking sensor symbol was flashing at me when sensors were on. When I got to work the symbol has gone and now there is a constant beep from the front sensors when you turn them sensors on

    Anybody know if it should do this or should I be taking this to Vauxhall
