Rear backup sensors

Can anyone recommend an after-market source for the rear sensors? When the car is put into reverse, there is a loud warning noise for a few seconds, which indicates a problem with one or more sensors. I have a 2003 XKR (North American model) and am told by the local Jag dealer that 3 or the 4 sensors are not working. The price quoted for the sensors seemed rather inflated.
Thanks,
Bob

Hi Bob. Where are you located? I’m in the Calgary area and could recommend a couple of places here to try. Other listers in your area may know a Jag specialist to point you to.

Hi Grahame. I’m in Victoria, but lived in YYC for 35y! I’ve seen a few of the sensors advertised on the internet, but am a bit hesitant to buy something that may be a piece of junk. Seems to me there might be a link between Ford and Jaguar?
I hope you are involved with the formation of a Jag club in Calgary, encompassing Ab and SK. I’m active with the Jag club here in Vic!

Try spraying with WD40 and cleaning the sensors before you shell out any money, they may just be dirty.

Just purchased another Jag (2009 XJ Vanden Plas, and it is at my daughter’s place in Springbank! We are heading out there, hopefully, the latter part of next week when our travel restrictions should have been lifted.

Cheers,

Thanks, Robin; I’ll give it a try, but I purchased the car 6y ago and they didn’t work.

Ok I assumed they were giving false information rather than being NBG.
:grinning:

The sensors are in a position where they can get dirty and grounds can get corroded. First thing to check for would be poor grounds or broken wires. Check with your mates in the Vic Jag Club for an auto electric shop they would recommend. The major car manufacturers buy these things from jobbers, so they are not unique to the mark.

Do you know Terry Sturgeon? He would be a good source for information on this problem. I know him from when he and I both practiced criminal law in Calgary.

I’ve been to Jags on the Island a couple of times and hope to get back again soon.

When you get a chance, drop me a message - rdbaynton@gmail.com. Cheers - Bob

Bob might pay to indicate who you wish to PM with?
