Parking Sensor Stress

Post by pdjenkins2002 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 12:10 pm

Hi all, collected my MY17 DS HSE Lux with Incontrol Touch Pro just over 2 weeks ago. All perfect for first week then unexplainably parking sensors (front and back) have just stopped working. Been through every setting / menu and the manual with no luck. The system would auto on when manoeuvring forward and back but know nothing. Just a red line across the top of the vehicle graphic when reverse is engaged and a message to said Parking Aids not available. Booked in at dealers on 27th Dec but just wondered if I've pressed something obvious and can easily switch back on...? Pic of screen attached. Any advice appreciated. Thank you!

What happens when you press the icon 2nd from far left to activate sensors manually? Does the triangle light up orange? If not, and manual override isn't working, then I'm afraid it's a dealer visit.

hello - it flashes orange and then greys out so it can't be pressed again until the engine is restarted. Based on your advice sounds like it'll have to wait until the dealer visit on the 27th. V frustrating. Thank you for coming back to me - much appreciated!

The small icon with a red cross superimposed on the camera image is interesting as well.

That indicates "Reverse Traffic Detection" (RTD) has failed. This was present on mine, but notably I do not have RTD installed. Took several conversations before the message got properly relayed to the tech team, and eventually solved by a software update.

How it got through the factory. through PDI, through 8 months of dealer ownership, and then through "Approved used" checks and still had a warning displayed regarding a feature the car does not have installed is beyond me.

Once I showed it to the specialist technician it was sorted easily. The hard part was getting reception staff to understand what the symbol means and not fob you off with "its because there is a car nearby on the left" comments.

So one question is do you have RTD installed?

Hi Mike, Yes RTD is installed so I'm guessing there must be a gremlin which has triggered a fault. Weird as it was all working fine. Anyway - booked into dealer just after Xmas so fingers crossed....

My parking sensors have gone weird!
The front ones go off when near nothing occasionally. Even with the vehicle stationary.
Anyone else have this feature?

If it's a long continuous tone rather than a beep, then yes. I found that I had mud coating one of the front sensors which was fooling it into thinking I was up against a wall every time I went from P to D.

It is the tone that you get when very close, but not totally continuous-ie-sounds for a couple of seconds,
They appear clean and if it was mud it would do it every time, these alerts are random.
