    The buzzer has gone silent on my parktronic although the displays are still working. Any suggestions??

    Have you checked that you haven't inadvertently disabled the buzzer? Mine has a switch on the centre console that will disable the buzzer.

    Mine have always had a switch to turn this off as well

    It's easily done.
    Had a shock when, in traffic, a big red triangle surrounding a car, started flashing up on my instrument panel accompanied by a load, insistant beeping.

    It turned out that my wife's handbag had caught the button that enables/disables the Distronic distance warning when I dropped her off at work that morning!

    On my CL it does this with or without the the distronic activated, a nice touch if you are dreaming

    The switch was the first thing I checked, it was active. The visual warning works, it's just the buzzer which isn't.

    OK then a good chance it is just the buzzer that has failed

    Thanks very much everyone. I've been away for a month and when I collected the car it was working! Just one of those things I guess?
