Parking sensor issues on my Accord...

I've had my Accord now a month, and love it to bits, but there is a small issue with my parking sensors, and wondered if anyone could shed any light.

They work absolutely brilliantly in the dry, but when they're cold, damp or wet they sound continuously! Thought they were supposed to see through water?

First thing in the morning I get the problem when the car is either cold or damp, or as I say when it rains and they're wet.

As I said they sound continuously when it happens as if i've reversed up to something and its sensing something - like it should - but all that is in the way is a bit of coldness or water droplets.

Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

My S does not have parking sensors so i cannot tell you my experience with it.

For what its worth it would follow this up with the dealer you purchased it from.

Cheers!

I've since discovered that one of the sensors isn't working! This could be the prob.

Cheers.

Hello!

I have used my parking sensors in all kind of weather since autumn 2008...rain, snow, fog +++... only when snow is covering the sensors I have experienced the same problem.

I also belive your defect sensor may be the problem....

Cheers for that, the dealer said it could also be the unit that is defective.

I may just give the car to them to fix!
