        There was no option for front parking sensors so they're def aftermarket... Speak to the garage you bought from?

                Reason i ask mate is that the Dealers normally fit them "in house" using a prefered sub-contractor.

                If this is the case you may find that they can point you in the right direction to resolve it

                  I have PDC fitted and where ordered as a factory fit when the car was built.

                  Rear sensors are only available on the Corsa as a factory fit.

                  The VXR does not have the switch in the dash as per the other models as the switch space is used for the ESP/Traction control switch, but does have the warning light built into the Rev counter clock , which illuminates if there is a fault with the system. This will also illuminate as per the other warning lights when the ignition is first switched on as a function test.

                  I guess you must have a after market system fitted, especially if you also have front sensors fitted.

                      had to take the mrs to a job interview today in edinburgh, and every time i touched the brakes the parking buzzer was locking on!!! so this evening i decided.. no more haha


                      i took my time and enjoyed KILLING it slowly as my head is now bouncing because of the little piece of crap lol, just disconnected the module, tried checking all the wires half way through the car etc but nah wasnt for shutting up and im not replacing it because no one unless your a shockingly bad driver needs parking sensors on a 3 door corsa haha :L

                      anyway heres the module!



                      pretty well done IMO for an aftermarket kit though!

                      and heres the Bugger that drove me mental



                      its dead now.

                      haha cheers to anyone and everyone who offered advice though ( TOM as always lol )

                        Hahaha good to see you killed it mate Could you not find any loose connections, etc?

                        Funny that this is the one reason i'd never get an aftermarket parking sensor kit
