Hi,

My 59 plate diesel C3 now has a problem with the parking sensors. It has the audible tone only type sensors. When reverse gear is first selected it bleeps and then states parking sensor fault on the centre console. It was intermitantly doing this but it now seems to do it all the time (although it worked once last week!). I have wiggled all the wires on the sensors, took the large multiplug apart & re-connected it. I have also bought a new sensor from e-bay & swapped it out with the two middle sensors in turn (can't get to the two outermost sensors). So my question, where is the control box for the reversing sensors? I saw a post stating it was under the drivers seat but I can't see where it would be. I've searched the boot too! Any help appreciated! Also, how do you get the outermost sensors out of the bumper!?

This is the diagram for the parking sensor ECU and the rear bumper sensors.
