Both my front and rear parking sensors are not working, I get an audible warning when selecting drive or reverse and the two red leds are showing on the display panels (they go off above 10mph).

Diagnostics shows all sensors front and rear to be bad, is this possible or is it something else?

Before I buy 12 new sensors hopefully I will be pointed in the right direction.

It WONT be every sensor .. do NOT buy all of them please .. it could be fuses , it could be the connection plugs for each bumper have had water ingress or it could be as simple as x1 front and x1 rear sensors have failed ..

basically it needs investigating .. it needs a tester on it to check the values for the sensors and for any fault codes .. then perhaps a wiring check .

I might add this system is pretty good at giving the correct fault code ... there will be some sort of code i would think .

Get an indy to look at it .

DON'T buy all new sensors !

I've had my local indy do diagnostics and all the sensors are showing xxx (no value) where there should be a reading - yes every one of them, some of the sensors do look suspect ie the ones above the exhaust pipes but surely they all cannot be faulty?
