I diagnosed dodgy sensors on my Mum's car by getting her to put in reverse and I would put my hand over the sensor, no beep - no working.

Some cars don't give you the reversing beeps if there's a fault present, on mine the system still clicks the sensors but inside the car you just get one Bad Beep to inform you there is a fault.

99 SV650

too many pushbikes (apparently)

The volvo disables the system if the sensors are faulty. I'll try the click test.

Had two deliveries today. My DICE clone which should allow me to read fault codes, and these Volvo rubber floor mats which will stop me stressing out about muddy feet mucking up the carpet.

Wow, these are some real autoshite-worthy repairs so far. How much did you pay for the car, if I may ask?

A little shy of six large. Not shite money and a lot for an 11 year old car, but they're a rare beast, these.

I didn't know about them until a taxi ride a few years ago. The owner/driver loved it and gave a full demo of performance available, weird for a Volvo - no substitute for many cylinders.

Hope it continues to tickle the right spot.
