This morning my parking sensor seemed to develope a life of it's own. The switch showing OFF and illuminated (red bar)
Does anyone have any ideas how to rectify this? Switched on off , pressed switch etc. Vehicle is an ML300 2010.

Had exactly the same fault - turns out, after Alastair kindly scanned the system on his STAR, the front NS sensor was faulty.

Replaced it, cleared error codes stored, and everything is perfect again.

You need to scan it, to find out which one is playing up. If you're near Northampton, I can do that for you, as I since bought an iCarsoft MB V2.0 scanner.

If they plug it in to STAR they will know exactly which one it is

You can sometimes tell which one it is by listening to them. One will sound different to the rest (seriously!)

Listen for clicking.
