Smile Parking sensors - not again!

Hi all, I know parking sensors have been covered to death on here but...

I bought the car with a parking sensor fault and thought it could be the front sensors as there is a bit of damage were the previous owner has bumped it, this had caused a full system shut off.

Now I'm no expert with PP but like others on here I like to dabble and using PP I had found that the "front right sensor short" or some fault like that had been detected, I tried to "clear" the fault but it came back up.

"What have you tried so far Jimmy" did you say, well I'll tell you... I found a new sensor on fleabay, bought it and waited on delivery, in the meanwhile I managed to disable the front sensors (made then ABSENT) and hey presto rear sensors came back to life, new sensor arrived and when I had a day off I replaced the front right sensor and then reactivated the fronts.

The fault is still there, same location front right, and to add to my pain when I deactivate the fronts I now get Rear Parking System Fault... gremlins.

I suppose after this long story I have one question, what would PP refer to as front right, would it be from inside or outside looking at the car, I presume it's outside looking on but could be wrong. Any suggestions?

It would be the one to the right when you sit inside the car.

Thanks for the reply B1ack, don't suppose you know which one to the right? There's 4 or 6 all in at the front so there's 2 or 3 to the right side.

It is the outer I would guess.

When my girlfriends car had one go bust it said: "front right inner sensor" which would be the 2'nd most right sensor on the car.

Hi DriverJim,

Hopefully you have this problem solved but if you haven't I hope this helps.

I had an almost identical issue to yours just after the relativley harsh winter we had last year, I had the message"Parking Sensor Fault" show one day when returning from work meaning my Sensors went haywire. I took it to my Local Independant Peugeot/Citroen specialist where they diagnosed it was "front right inner sensor" that had short circuited and needed to be replaced. I ordered one costing 46.00 + VAT and Labour to fit it, about 150 in total, when I picked it up the garage apologised but they couldn't get all 6 sensors at the front to work together meaning the middle 4 were fine but the outer 2 just wouldn't pick anything up (Needless to say they only charged me 1.5 Hours labour instead of the 5 hours they had spent playing with it) At this point the rears were working fine, I put up with it for a week or two hoping they would sort themselves out but in actual fact the sensors decided to ALL turn themselves off, so I bit the bullet and got it booked in at my Local Walkers Peugeot Garage. They put it on their diagnosis machine (60.00 Inc VAT) and it thought all was well but obviously it wasn't. They then did the most simple thing of reseting my Parking Sensors through the ECU and Touchwood ever since that day they have all worked 100% fine.
It might be worth getting it on the Diag machine, it'll cost you about 60 but it was worth it for me.

Thanks for that SuperSam, I haven't had time to have a fiddle around with them yet so I've still no parking sensors front or rear but when I do it's something else to try. I'll post an update after. Thanks.
