Parking sensors - increasing volume?


Recommended Posts

For those of you that have the parking distance sensors in the rear, do you find the volume to be barely audible especially with the engine running? I can hear it just fine with the engine off. I'd like to know if there's a way to increase the volume somehow. My dealership doesn't know of such a way. Any suggestions?

MANY MANY thanks Loren! I'll stop by the dealership to see if they can do this for me. I'm not sure why they didn't know about this feature.

Well, I have good news and bad news. I stopped by my local dealership (Barrier) and their tech was only too happy to hook up the PIWIS to adjust the PDC setting but as it turns out the default setting is already "loud." That's the bad news, the good news is that it's there. :D
