Rear Sensor problem

2006 Sport. The rear sensors have a mind of their own!! 50/50 they work correctly when I engage reverse - or - they stay permanently on for no reason. The local Range Rover people have had a look at the problem a couple of time (when I'm in their garage they work correctly...naturally). They have checked the system with a computer and suggest its most likely to be an electrical fault. I'm in France - computer not telling them exactly where the problem is, so, hands in the air, that's that. Can anyone out their advise me of the likely cause of the problem if it is an electrical? Andrew Kennedy

it will be one sensor at fault.

When this happened to me, I carried around my IID.
When the fault occurs, plug it in, read the live values of the rear sensors.

The one that is reporting a short distance 0.5m when not parked near anything is faulty

I believe some find it possible to listen by each sensor and hear which one is not working.

If it is electrical its not a hugely difficult job to get the rear bumper off and have a look at the loom. (If I can do it then anyone can). When I did this to fix mine, I found that someone had already done a botched wiring job on the original LR wiring. My guess is that the LR wiring leaves a lot to be desired.

Here's a link to my post if its of any help.

I don't think listening helps in this case.

Thanks for that info!!!. I'll have a look on line to see if I can find a site giving details of how to remove the rear bumper. Regards Andrew Andrew Kennedy

Rob, thanks for the input!! When you say 'broken wire in the loom' - after I've taken the bumper off and cleaned the area, should it be relatively simple to find the break? the phrase LOOM conjures up a mass collection of wiring. Andrew Andrew Kennedy

I can't speak for RobPs experience but when I took the bumper off mine, it was quite obvious where there was a problem (see the link I posted above where the red wire is just broken). And at this part of the car the "loom" is just a few wires. Nothing complicated. Thumbs Up Robin

Many thanks for all the advice!!!! When it's a warmer day, I will be under the car taking the bumper off to have a good look round! Andrew Andrew Kennedy

Dont worry loom means 4 pairs of wires at the thickest part!

Yes mine was very obvious I just followed the wire along where the are cliped to bumper skin and found the break as quite visible and I think broken in same place a per photo in Eaters thread https://www.rrsport.co.uk/forum/topic48459...ng+sensors TDV8 now with extra grin factor thanks to Alive Tunning
