2006 Range Rover HSE Super Charged

Hey everyone out there in Rover Land. Im looking for any and all insight on two problems not linked together.

1) PDC system does not appear to be working. When the vehicle is placed in reverse it makes a the hight pitched tone for about 5 sec's or until button is pressed to turn in off. If I turn the key on and place the vehicle in reverse (engine not running) there is one sensor at the rear that is not emitting the tell take "ticking" noise. Will this one faulty reverse sensor disrupt the whole system ?

2) Further to an earlier post with out much response I am having vibrations while slightly under load in 5th or 6th gear around 2000 rpm. It is most akin to driving a manual trans and selecting too high a gear for the grade of road - resulting in a "lugging" or shudder of the entire vehicle. If the accelerator is more aggressively depressed either forcing a down shift or allowing for harder acceleration the "shudder" stops. I have checked fuel flow and air filter to ensure good delivery and the probably still exists. It is most prominent in regular trans mode but can be coerced in sport trans mode as well.

Any and all feed back will be spectacular.

regards,

Not sure what you mean by "ticking noise" but yeah, one bad rear (or front) sensor will disable the entire bank of sensors on that bumper - and the alarm you hear will be triggered each time - until the offending part is replaced. Or maybe it's just wet and shorted, and it may start working again after it dries up. Happened to one of the rear sensors on my Sport for a few months, after a heavy rain or a car wash it would fail and then would start working again after a day or two of dry weather. Eventually though, I had to replace it. It's fairly inexpensive, especially if they don't have to take down the bumper to switch it.

It is true, I listened to each sensor and they all tick!
