Burn it to a disc. Tells you where everything is on the Idea and how to remove it, fault finding etc.

Not sure if you have one or not but check the Menu to make sure you have the Towbar function either on or off on your parking sensors (depending on what you have fitted). Might even be in the ECU and not menu. Can't remember where I saw it.

MultiEcuScan is a good bit of kit to have if you want to fault check your Idea etc.

Re: Reversing Sensors

I'm reckoning this is probably a common thing mine does exactly same thing.
I've left mine alone though usually know when I've reversed to close to something I normally hear bang

Please let us know if you manage to sort it

Re: Reversing Sensors

Hi hashcake77... It seems very hard to get any info on the reversing sensors ...They have stopped working on my car as well ,at the same time the seat belt warning bleeper stopped working ... so I think they must use the same alarm buzzer thingy ...But I cant find where it lives on my Idea ... any clues ?....interesting name btw ...the last time I tried a hashcake was in 77 ....

Re: Reversing Sensors

I don't think so ...I think the bleeper for the reversing sensor is somewhere under the dash and the seatbelt bleeper is the same bleeper ..'cos they failed at the same time .. but it might just be a coincidence...I dunno .
