Sound like you have a fault. To check where the problem lies, turn on the ignition until the dash lights illuminate, then pull the handbrake on and off 3 times within 10 seconds- if it's a sensor, there will be between one and 4 beeps from offside to nearside, ie, 3 beeps is the inner nearside sensor. I had it too- it took the dealer 3 goes under warranty to sort it. Best of luck.

bigiainw... where do you get all this info from
I had a similar fault and since Chevy appeared to be hopeless (it wasn't just appearances, let me tell you...) I found the means to diagnose this myself!

It's in the GM Chevy manual whichI don't have access to at all ever

Hi pete,Hope I am not too late for you, but on my orlando I can configure the beepers from the screen to turn off or on, the cars cannot be that different.

My rear parking sensors also started to play up yesterday.

5 bursts of beeps every time i put the car into reverse.

I tried the 3 handbrake trick posted by bigiainw (thanks), it done 6 beeps instead of the 1-4 as expected.

I am assuming this means my rear sensors are OK?!?

Does anyone know what 6 beeps means??

It means it's all fecked! Seriously, if that's the case, it usually means water in the sensors. I took my rear bumper off, dried out the sensors and then refitted usung lots of WD40- no more problem.

Ive had two of the sensors replaced and the wiring loom. The sensors were covered by warranty direct but they wouldnt cover the loom and the stealer reckoned they can often go too so I paid the extra just in case.

The horn sounding is an alarm issue. No idea what 4 beeps x 4 is, unless you did if 4 times and every time it beeped 4 times, which means the outside drivers side sensor is the problem. 3 beeps on going into reverse points to a reversing sensor issue too.

<DIV id=C9O0SEAP align=left>More than 4 beeps probable means more than 1 sensor is faulty.

<DIV align=left>Note from below the sequence is repeated twice!!

<DIV =T1 align=left>If the sensor circuit fault is not detected, control module will ring the normal alarm(1 time for 0.3 second).

<DIV =T1 align=left>Right Corner Sensor

<LI>If the fault is detected in several sensors, the control module will repeat the alarm pattern twice for the faulty sensors, following the order (Left Corner †' Left Middle †' Right Middle †' Right Corner).</LI>[/list]

Hi There
Glad some one else had the 6 beep response. I am living in Cyprus so no easy access to 'good' auto electricians or 'knowledgeable' auto mechanics.
My parking sensors packed up during the long 'dry' summer so water ingress not a problem. Even if it had been due to water ingress during washing it would have dried out by now.
Fault displayed by - warning lamp on when ignition switched on and 3 beeps, repeated 3 times when car placed in reverse. The hand brake trick produced 3 rapid beeps repeated 6 times.
I cannot find a fuse for this system?
Did you manage to resolve your problem which you reported had also produced 6 beeps?
Regards

The horn sounding tells you the alarm has been triggered while you have been away. I got quite used to it, in my case Ihave pulled the plug on the internal sensor.

3 beeps is the inside drivers side sensor. What I did to confiirm for myself was to swap the suspect sensor with another. If its the sensor at fault then the beeps will change to indicate the new position and all you have to do is replace the duff sensor.

How do you do that or is it done by dealer? When I ordered the car I thought that, like my Volvo there would be an on/off switch for when I too caravan.

Wouldn't seem to be a sensor issue then- could be wiring or the control module.
