Front parking sensor keeps alarming.

Post by The_beltsander » Fri Mar 10, 2017 2:09 pm

I posted something about this yesterday and having brought it back to dealers I thought I'd share my experience because it can't possibly just be my car that's having the issue.


The problem was that the front parking sensor kept alarming even when the road ahead is clear . The only way to stop it was to disable the park assist (the sensors, nothing to do with the self parking option) on the settings screen.

To clarify, sensor 1 kept alarming:

I bought it back to the dealers this morning and after several test drives, emails and tech reports to Toyota, phone calls to to Toyota Ireland and about 2 hours it turns out the problem was the number plate surround that the garage fitted had been triggering the front sensor randomly. It's also not the first time Toyota Ireland had heard of the issue.

It can't possibly just be my garage that's made this error.

Hopefully this will be of use to anyone having a similar problem.

On the heads up display go right over to settings (the cogs)
Hit down and there should be an option there to toggle them on off.

Thank You so very much for this...My CHR has been in the garage to get this fault fixed. I shared this thread with them and sure enough, it was the number plate being too long.

What they did notice is the the Number plate plinth on the Excel is different to that on the Dynamic, hence the fault seems to be on Excels only.

Thanks again...Looking forwards to enjoying my CHR at last.!

Ah ok that makes sense,

My CHR is a sol trim. The first one to go through my local toyota garage, it must have the same plinth, hence why nobody else's car had the same issue.
