Hi there, new member just got a 2006 rr sport, which is much better than my old x5

I just have one problem, The parking sensor sometimes just has a long beep then the light flashes, and when it does work ( 40%) of the time the reverse beep is not sounding the same, its gone very high pitch and squeaky unlike the front. :crybaby2:

any insight on this would be great! thanks! :think:

also where is the Fuse box located, there is one in the Engine compartment, is that the only one or is there another?

i would check the owners manual but mine did not come with one and landrover ordered me one

The high pitched tone and flashing PDC light on the center console indicate a faulty park sensor. If the tone sounds as soon as you engage reverse, it's one of the four in the rear bumper (I have had to replace a couple back there already... When I removed the tips of my Overfinch exhaust to off-road, the fumes would sometimes melt the sensor! :D ) Wait a few days - sometimes rain, snow or car washes can cause a sensor to short temporarily and start working again when the water dries up - otherwise take it to a dealer or an indy shop with diagnostics, they can identify the faulty sensor and replace it.

There is another one behind the lower glove box in the front passenger compartment, you need to depress the retaining clips of the glove box to drop it completely and access the fuses. You can view or print your own owner's manuals: www.ownerinfo.landrover.com

Without those tips being made by a reputable company (I could not determine who is the manufacturer) and them being chrome not polished stainless steel and them needing to be welded on, I'd proceed cautiously. Looks like they need to hang down or would you need to cut the rear valence for horizontal?

Sensor s/b about $80-100 (part # YDB500301PMA, probably cheaper than that if you find it online), plus labor to identify the shorted one via diagnostics and the time to replace it. My local LR indy shop only charged me $20 in labor to replace the outer rear ones (yes, I melted both with my exhaust...) for a relatively cheap $100 total bill for each repair, but that's because the outer rear sensors don't require removal of the bumper. If the defective one on your car turns out to be one of the two inner ones, they will have to take the rear bumper down and you will probably end up paying an hour or two of labor instead.
