Hi there!

New to the forum; bought a 2007 2.0 Auto C-Max yesterday and just trying to get my head round it all today!

My car
seems to have front and rear parking sensors fitted; the rear sensors
come on and work no problem when Reverse gear is engaged, but I can't
seem to get anything out of the front sensors. I have popped all 4
sensors out and they are all connected up and I have given them a good
clean. What is confusing me, however, is that the handbook says there
should be a switch to turn the front sensors on and off, but no such
switch exists in my car!

Is it as simple as the sensors just
haven't been wired up to a switch or is it something else? Any feedback
would be massively appreciated!

I have factory fitted sensors front and rear, the front ones come on at the same time as the rear ones, or when you are moving very slowly forward. There is a switch just under the hazard light switch. I would suggest that if you don't have the switch then they are not factory fitted ones.
