Does it have front PDC too?? If not I believe that rear PDC is only operated when the vehicle is in reverse gear.

SOURCE: where do you hook up a scan tool to read trouble


All 1996 and newer BMW vehicles utilize a "D" style plug-in connector that connects to the code reader. On most vehicles the connector is located under dash board driver's side right under steering column.

SOURCE: how to replace a bmw rear parking sensor

put car into reverse with ignition on (not running) and either listen very closely or feel each sensor with your finger tips, you should hear a clicking noise or feel a ticking on the good sensors. once you have determined the faulty one simply release the two plastic retaining clips and push the sensor through the bumper inwards, then remove plug and fit new sensor

Pdc fault

When is only one piece of a broken sensor for PDC, so the whole system fails. Where is faulty can be reliably checked diagnosis

I have a little trick! When you provide your PDC up and attach finger to the sensor - must easily pulsing! When if not, that's bad!

Check out and You see.

2002 x5, the reverse sensor

i would check to make sure the connections to #1 in this pic are secure:

its the active PDC control unit. this is assuming none of the sensors are working when you are in reverse.

by the way, does the front PDC work or is it acting the same way?
