I've recently been having a problem with the parking sensor beep getting stuck. After reversing when I put it into drive and start going the beep keeps going at a constant rate until I turn it off and let it do a soft reset. It has happened a few times in the last week or so and I was just curious if anyone else has been having this problem.

This is a known problem. The following workaround was recently posted on another thread:

I've had my parking warning sound keep going off after leaving my garage. One trick I learned was to make a call on your phone via the bluetooth through the car. This seems to 'trick' the system into turning off the warning sound. Otherwise you need to stop and wait for your car to go to sleep.

I have also been having this issue - it's been happening more and more frequently recently in fact. A recent poster suggested that making a phone call via Bluetooth cuts this off; haven't tried it myself yet.

This happened to me today when I backed out of my garage and the BT Phone call trick worked like a charm. You can hang up as soon as it starts ringing, there is no need to make a full call.

Thanks Fab. Will try this next time the issue arises (likely tomorrow morning as I back out of my garage....).

I took my car to the dealer with this problem... At first, they couldn't replicate the problem and asked me to pick the car up. Right before I picked the car up they washed it for me and the beeping started. They think that they found the problem:

"We found the problem with the car. There was a water leak at the base of the windshield, that would allow water to get to a module. We have been able to seal the area with out any problems. However we are going to have to replace the module. We have special ordered the module and asked to get it overnight if possible. We will know in the morning. I know this could hamper your plans. We are trying to make your schedule work to get your vehicle back home."

The first time it happened to me it wasn't raining (and I don't think that it had been raining the previous 24 hours), so I can't verify that they fixed the problem but I'm hopeful! (I should be getting it back soon).

mgwahoo,

This glitch is too prevalent and too sporatic to be a function of a water leak. I don't think that's going to solve the problem. It's most likely a software issue having to do with communication across the car's CAN bus (discussed at length in several threads) and my guess is that regardless of what the dealer replaces you'll still see the issue until the SW is updated.

Having said that, keep us posted and let us know if it does the trick!

I'm pretty confident it has nothing to do with water leakage. Happens to me fairly frequently, and my Karma hasn't been in the rain in a while....

I am so glad I happened to read this tip last night!! This morning my sensor would not stop beeping and I remembered the tip. Immediately dialed my office from my cell phone and before the first ring the beeping stopped!!!! Thanks so much.

while I don't think that this is the root of the beeping problem it is interesting that they found a water leak and think that the leak has killed a module. I would be interested to know what the module is so that we could know what that module does and if there is a leaking problem killing the module we can all get it properly sealed if it is a widespread problem

When this happens, press the "src" button the steering wheel and it should go off -- at least it did for me the one time I tried.
