Back Up Sensor

Hey folks I used the search function to see if this problem was already addressed, but I couldn't find anything.

Has anyone had a problem with their back up sensor? When I put the car in reverse I usually get one solid beep to let me know the car is in reverse, then when I get close to something it starts beeping slowly until I get the solid tone like it is supposed to.

Sometimes I get absolutely nothing when I put the car in reverse! And the sensor doesn't work period! Are the sensors just dirty on the back bumper? 2SS/RS manual with 1300 miles. I find this hard to believe because the car is clean, garaged and driven only on the weekends.

Thanks!

How many miles? Mine stuck in reverse mode a few times when it was under 200 miles. Evertime a car got behind me, it beeped. Seems to have fixed itself, though.

I think I am going to take it to the dealer, still not working all the time and I have no clue why.

Yeah, if it still hasn't "loosened up" have them check it out. Let me know what they say. So far mine is still working, but who knows...

Never had any probs with mine. Approaching 1 year old soon. Def take it in and get them to look at it. By any chance have you noticed if the reverse lights are still working? Might be tied into the reverse light switch...

my camaro did this when it had 150 miles on it but I took it to the dealer and he fixed it. When I asked him what the problem was he just said 'don't worry about it its fixed now."

go into your center console, and check if you turned off the park assist. Maybe it turned off for some reason.

Within the config features accessed via the radio controls you can turn off park assist....

... mine acts a bit strange... sometimes, for no apparent reason, when I shift into reverse (V6 M6), I get the "Park Assist Off" message... other times it seems to work fine...

Yeah it's weired, it didn't work yesterday when I backed the car in the garage, but it worked again later. That was the first time it hadn't worked in a long time.

Mine's still flawless after the initial issues. I think a total of 3 times over 2 days it got stuck. Nothing since.

gotta go to the config settings on the radio face. Driver controls I think it's called and scroll through there. You can turn it off and on.

I already reset everything to factory settings and no change at all. Not sure what could be the problem, but I know I was messing around the controls on the radio and I'm sure I change something.

I call customer service and there is an option to turn it off and ON in the stereo menu.
1st step click on CONFIG menu
2nd go to Vehicle Settings menu
3rd click on Collision/Detection Systems
4th Park Assist On/Off

Cool, that's what I was trying to say.

Personally, I don't think the BEEPING is loud enough. Turn your radio on and you can not hear them. I have to turn the radio off if I want to hear the BEEPING. And in some cases I do.

So glad I have a 2010 that didn't come with these sensors both for the fact that it doesn't work sometimes and my bumper looks nice and clean without those sensors disrupting the body...I hear about these issues from people that I met at a car show recently with their 10/11's and they just turned it off and then on like the steps mentioned above to kind of "reset" it so to speak. Try that first and hopefully it works or else I guess have a dealer look at it if it's a growing concern.
