Frequently asked questions about car sensor repair & replacements
Read our answers to questions about car sensor repair costs, symptoms and more.
How much does it cost to replace a parking sensor?
The cost of replacing a parking sensor can cost between £100-£200 depending on the make and model of the year and the location of repair.
How can you tell if a parking sensor is bad?
Most parking sensors are located on the rear end bumper cover. For a basic check (for most modern cars) follow the steps:
- Switch the ignition on
- Put the car in reverse gear with the handbrake on
- Bring your ear close to the sensors on the bumper and check for a "ticking" sound
- If you notice any of the sensors not making a "ticking" sound, then it is likely the sensor is faulty.
As a more reliable testing method, a qualified mechanic takes off the bumper, providing access to the sensor and then uses a multimeter to test and check each sensor.
What causes parking sensors to break?
Some common reasons parking sensors can fail:
- Technical glitches related to the ECU (Electronic Control Unit)
- Damage to the wiring or loose wiring
- Mechanical damage caused due to debris and moisture
- Exposure to extreme temperatures
