dSire was hit by a car two months back. Since then, she has lost her reverse sensing abilities.
I took her to some service center who advised that I leave her for a few days for testing and I took her to some accessory shops who advised me to go back to the service center due to warranty issue as the sensor seems to be connected to the body control module (BCM).
I was a bit hesitant to spend my annual leave rotting away in an SC, so dW bought a third party reverse sensor for me off Lazada for RM48.

So off I went to one of my trusted accessory shop, GA Auto aka HQ. dBoss accessed the rear bumper to reach for the sensors and lo and behold! the left sensor was not connected.
We locked eyes for half a second before it becomes gayish. He quickly plugged in the sensor back in place whilst I make my way to the cabin to start up dSire.
The sound of the beep upon R was such a relief. It seems that the connection of the sensors were daisy chained. without left, there is no right. Without right, left still functions well. So...
Symptom : No beep upon engaging R. Does not detect obstacles.
Problem : Sensor lost connection.
Solution : Plug it back in and tie it up. Cable tie as per pic below works. Maybe some duct tape should have been used as well.

There you go... problem solved. Now, if you can't solve your reverse sensor after checking this, PM me, I got a brand new reverse sensor unit for sale. 4 eyes and on-dash indicator too. Comes in a set.
