10 sec sound when selecting reverse. reverse alarm not bleeping on reversing near obstacle.

the beep is a warning of system failure the usual problem is water in the sensors, to test the sensors engage reverse with ign. on and put your ear close to each sensor in turn you should hear a faint ticking from the good sensors, nothing from the faulty ones, the wiring behind the bumper is also prone to burning on the exhaust. hope this helps.

Hi ive got a jaguar s type 2.7d and having problem with parking sensors, would you know anything about them?

Check the sensors , you still might have bad one in the group which will effect the full function of the sensors.

If sensors are good , then you need to check the position of the sensors and set up correctly as if one of the sensors is out of alignment , it will cause this problem.

If not , the you need to check the electrical wiring for the sensors

Parking sensor not working

It is very easy to test the sensors ,if you have access a stethoscope ( you buy cheap ones at a parts store or walmart) To test park on level ground... apply the parking brake turn the key on but do not start the car not put the car in reverse take the stethoscope and put on top of the out side sensors one by one ... you should hear a light tcking noise from the sensor when you get to the one not making a ticking sound you have found which one is not working ... ck the plug and wiring if its ok replace the sensor ( dealer only part ) plug the new sensor in and the system will reset automatically

My 06 Jaguar s-type parking sensors no longer work (following the recent cold weather) - could this be a fuse?

If your reverse lights don't work, then it is a fuse. If they do work, It could just be a bad ground on the reverse switch of the tranny. Just take it to your local audio shop (whom install these also in aftermarket brands) to look at it and repair the problem.

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

My 2003 Jaguar S-Type has a faulty Reverse Park Control system. When shifting into Reverse gear, a constant tone sounds until the gear is shifted into a forward gear or neutral. What are the usual causes...

This is a sensor fault. The easiest way to locate wich sensor is faulty is to get up close to the sensors when the car is in reverse gear (engine off) with the ignition on and put your thumb nail on the sensor face as this will amplify the ticking noise that can be heard from the sensors. No tick indicates a sensor fault.

To disconnect the system will just give you the same problem with the constant tone unless you disconnect the park aid module wich is located in the boot of the vehicle on the left hand side behind the carpet trim. Beware that the handbrake module is there so ensure that you are looking at the right module (it will say on it)

Sensors are not expensive unless you need to have them painted to body coulor as they come in black. Easy push in/out fitment from the behind the bumper. Corner sensors can be replaced with the bumper in situ but centre sensors require the bumper to be removed.

Hope that helps

Reverse parking aid s type jaguar makes continous noise

Sensor fault more than likley. Best way to check is to get up close to the sensors whilst the car is in reverse gear and the and the engine is off but the ignition is on. Rest your thumb nail on each sensor and if a tick cannot be heard then this shows a sensor fault. The tick is very quiet though.

If all are ok it may be a module fault
