Parking sensors have stopped working

Post by S_matharoo » Wed Jun 09, 2021 7:44 pm

Hi all

My wife's car is a 67 plate C-HR and about 3 months about ago the parking sensors have stopped working. They no longer beep and the park assist has also stopped working although this was never used and the first time we tried it recently a message on the dashboard flashed up showing the red circle with a line through it all around the car.
Toyota reckon it will cost £1000 to fix but they haven't said what's wrong, hoping for some advice on what to do. Has anyone come across this before?

we had the same thing after we had the car serviced, turned out dealer had turned the sensors off , so maybe they are just turned off, maybe worth going to another dealer if this one has asked for £1000 before they have even looked ,sounds fishy to me

I had this, when the battery went flat in the winter. Disconnected the 12v battery for 10 seconds cured it for me. Also as already stated, check not turned off in settings.

My sensors sometimes (3-4x a year) just stop working.. notice that when im parking at destination.
Can switch then off-and-on in the menu.. no change. No error codes found.

After a restart of the car all works fine again.
