problem with parking sensors?

Hi mates!

Well, I think I have a problem with my parking sensors. When I put the reverse gear and obviously there is nothing behind the car at least within 5-6 meters range, the parking sensors (four..) seem to scan.. non existing obstacles by chance and the small monitor in the car shows that there is something behind, sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right side, sometimes within 1.5 meter, 1 meter, 30cm, 80cm, ets, etc, and these "values" change many times per 5 seconds, for example. In addition, once, I parked my car and there was a Primera behind me. The monitor showed that there were about 30cm distance between my Civic and the Nissan, but the truth was that I starded.. pushing it!!! What do you thing is the problem with my parking system and its faulty indications? Is there a kind of "chip" in it that needs to be calibrated? Please, help me!

If your car is a 2007 and you have a display, these must be aftermarket parking sensors.

Do you know which brand?

did they every work or have they just started going wrong? I have just put a set of Cisbos on my 06, and they seemed to work ok. A few strange beeps but I am testing them for a week before I make a final decision. What I did wonder was whether it made a difference if the sensors are not fitted in order. On the instructions it says ABCD (left to right from the rear) and the control box and sensors pins are lettered correspondingly. I have seen anything which says the order of connection is relevant, but I will post again once I have tested this out. I wonder if your sensors may be connected in the wrong order and confusing the controller?

I have "Honda factory fitted" (actually put in by the dealer when I ordered the car lol), but sometimes they tell me that there is some obstruction. This usually happens when they are wet, dirty, or frozen at -30C. The solution is to apply some silicon sealant around the back of the sensors so nothing gets in.

Latest news.. I went to my electrician and told him the problem. He found a kind of "chip", hidden somewere in my boot and re-adjusted (reduced..) the sensitivity of sensors. I Have to admid that they work much better now, with much less faulty indications..
