Sometimes, the reverse alarm on my Note (auto 2007)does notwork.Uponchanging toreverse gearthe alarmdoes not have an initial a beep/on sound ( which it normally does when it works) ..Has anyone experienced this or found the cause & fix please?
Get someone to stand to one side behind the car and check if your reversing lamps come on. If not I would suspect the reversing lamp switch. Sadly, the service manual I have doesn't seem to cover parking sensors.
I kind of got used to the parking sensor alarm.. when the reverse gear is engaged it makes a beep, then when it gets near obstacles it beeps intermittently, and with impending collision ( approx 1ft continuous beep ). Now upon engaging the reverse gear the lamp comes on alright, but it doesnt beep anymore from then.. nothing in the manual . Im trying to find where the switch to the sensor system is, and trace from there .. no luck yet
lol i just had a look pulled the rubber off and un clipped the center trim (you need the boot floor out and it pulls straight up) to trace the cables
if you pull the light out on the drivers side you can see the reverse module you will need to remove the rear quarter trim to get at it tho
i think wolfgang had an after market one fitted by a dealer rather than a factory fit item
Flash22.. just double checking..is the reverse module under the gear lever cover ( to be removed ). same for automatic?. I need to work out how to remove the gear stick cover without breaking . probably need to locate which fuse also in case its blown. thanks
ps "need the boot floor out and it pulls straight up" // do you mean under the spare tyre? most probably Im a bit lost lol.
the reverse sensor module is in the back of the car !!! open the boot and its behind the left hand rear 1/4 trim
in the boot you need to remove the boot carpet that covers the spare wheel, then you cantake off the rubber boot seal andunclip and remove the boot trim you then need to remove the 1/4 trim panel (the big bit) to gain access to it
theres nothing you need to touch near the gearstick !! the module under the centre console (where the handbrake is) is the air bag module
