Seems that if you only have standard rear only reversing sensors, you do not have a button to turn off the sensors. I've only had my car 2 days and twice this has been an issue when stopping to pick people up. I've had to press the stop button, even though on both occasions I was only stopping for a short period. Next time this happens I'm going to see if it is better to move into first and drive forward less than a turn of the wheel. this is the only way I can see of overcoming this without having to press the stop button when you do not have the button to stop the sensors.

Can't you just take the car out of reverse?

Sorry to resurrect this missing button topic again..

I was sat outside a shop at the weekend waiting for the missus. I was at the side of the road and had reversed into the parking parking space.

No beeping as there were no cars behind me. I sat there with the engine running, car sitting in neutral, minding my owning business listening to music.

Suddenly a car pulled up behind me, I nearly jumped out of my skin as the PDCs sprang into life and started beeping at me... The guy behind parked up and walked past me none the wiser - I had to kill the engine to stop the frantic beeping!!!

I can not understand why they do not only become active when you are in reverse, that's the way they used to work in my E91... Seems like a step backwards, albeit a very careful PDC guided step backwards..

I am guessing they stay active as a parking aide. When used with the front ones they allow you to centre your car in the space. See the vid in the configurator

Have you asked your dealer whether they can be coded to reverse only?
