Hi, I recently took ownership of my car and I'm a little confused about parking sensors! The car is not fitted with the parktronic system that it shows in the owners manual yet it has rear sensors fitted!
I fitted a tow bar to her at the weekend and following the instructions for rear bumper removal it clearly has the parktronic rear sensor loom fitted which I had to unplug. So why would they fit rear sensors if parktronic was not part of the package? There are no front sensors by the way.

Sorry your first question I can’t answer!
I must admit to thinking all Mercedes from 2003 ish on had paktronic (at least rear)but could be wrong - has it the binnacle area where the parktronic lights should be?

First thing we can do is to check what options were fitted. To do that we will need the car’s VIN...

Not sure where the parktronic lights should be but there is a meshed area in the centre of the dashboard where I suspect cars fitted with that system would find the lights.

Centre of the dash is the front sensor display on mine.
The rear sensor display lights are just in front of the rear interior light, awkward place but can be seen by looking in the rear view mirror. A sound is only made when an object is very close so you may have them and never noticed.
Try putting it in reverse without moving and get someone to walk past the back of the car close to the bumper.

Nope. My 08 reg ML didn’t have front or rear. I had to fit aftermarket.

OK here we go. No Parktronic. I had a lurking suspicion; MBs from this era had as few harness variants as possible so if you want to retrofit a system the wiring is almost always in place and ready to go.


So, my guess is your car has had some rear end damage and has been fitted with a replacement bumper from a scrapped car, that happened to have Parktronic.

A replacement bumper maybe what happened but would my car have the rear parking display lights installed in the roof if the parktronic was not originally fitted? Do some cars just have the rear sensors and display lights fitted rather than the full monty?
