Parking sensor problem

Hi all

My parking sensors seem to be on the fritz, just a constant beep when reverse gear is selected

My car cam with some aftermarket sensors by the look of it - the manual was in my paperwork - Steelmate PTS400EX

So is this likely to be one of the sensors or could it be the control module? Is it just worth getting another set and just replacing the whole lot myself?

cheers

Could be one of the sensors faulty, try and locate the main box and disconnect each sensor individually to try and locate the problem

Would the control box be hidden behind one of the boot panels?

If a sensor is unplugged, does the box of tricks just ignore the missing input?

The one I installed did, I tested the system in the house using a 12v source, plugging in one sensor at a time, and the box worked normally with only one sensor connected
