Hello Dave first are you parking sensors giving a full scale red warning all the time, if they just are not working,,then the chances are is that the connectors have come off the rear

They might have become unplugged from where they clip in

I find it highly unlikely for all 4 to go at the same time (unless you have passed a leaking nuclear facility lately:rolleyes:).

I'll go with Malcolm and suggest that it is far more likely that a cable is unplugged/cut/trapped. I'd ask the garage to have a closer look before tipping up for new ones or at least get it looked at by a garage with Star to get a better diagnosis.

I do not know what the garage did. We have had many cars where the have become detached from their holders and loose behind the bumper
