    No sensors working - iCarsoft LR v2 diagnostics

    So after years or no parking sensors, I finally decided to look into it and have acquired (2nd hand from bertster, thanks) a iCarsoft LR v2.

    All my sensors report "Sensor distance 0.10 inch".

    Does this mean the control module is knackered?

    Not necessarily, because one shorted sensor can affect the rest.

    If there are no codes I think you'll need to disconnect the sensors one by one, or replace them one by one.

    I am guessing the 2 'above threshold' speed threshold messages = something is borked? And will this be causing the 2 'sensor status inactive', or vice versa?

    It says 2 codes, but when I select the 'Show Fault Codes' it displays none.

    Perhaps they are the ones described as Above Threshold

    Pop the connector off the module and look for blue corrosion on the pins and connector. You could also pop the mounting nuts off and remove the module.
    Pop the cover off and look for water damage.

    It's quick to do and a cheap fix if the module has suffered the common water damage issue. Water seems to wick up the cable and end up on the circuit board, frying components. This was my fault giving no working sensors and a £25 fix for a tested, used module from UK's Autoreserve Jaguar.

    I did post a pic of the board here <https://www.jaguarforum.com/showthread.php?t=117083>. There is some white gunk (which I have cleaned with electrical cleaner), but the pins and everything else looked perfect.

    Basically I want to make sure there is nothing else that could be wrong before buying ANOTHER module off eBay. I had a quote of £141.89 +VAT (£170 total) for a new one from Jaguar.
