On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced. The switch is just plug and play

Audi A4 Tdi My sensors (Rear only) on My Audi A4 will only send out a continious sound for a few seconds on start up. But will not sound any audio signal when reversing the car. how can I...

Try to clean rear parking sensors. Check also electric cables and connections, clean if necessary. Common faults are sensors out of order. If one or more sensors faults you hear only a continous constant noise when you put in "R" gear. You need a VAS, VAG-COM, Bosch KTS, ... diagnostic scantool equipment. The factory parking system will be scanned from errors with this instrument, and you will find exactly which sensors are out of order (for example: rear left center sensor, rear right side sensor break off, short to ground or short to plus).
