    Does anyone know where the PDC (parking sensor) control module is located?

    Had the whole boot apart yesterday as thought it was in same place as on the C6; on the right hand side under the load rail.

    Any help is appreciated

    Thank you. Its a 2016

    So if my rear sensors have all stopped working then it must be one of them causing it? I had assumed if none of them were working it must be the controller!

    None of the rears are clicking/pulsing.

    Correct. if one of them dies then all of them go off. If you have standard 4 sensor pdc then all of them are the same. Of you have 6 sensor pdc then 4 inner are same and 2 outer side ones are same

    Might be a case of changing them one at a time and seeing which one it is then

    Cheers

    Fault codes?

    It should indicate faulty sensor, or if the cables are hanging loose behind rear right wheel arch, it might be destroyed by the gravel shower - then you could loose all. Detach cable from the control unit, and draw the cable/plug through the feedthru and you get the wires to more convenient place to fix.

    Normally a scan shows which one isn't working. When it happened to me, I had to replace the whole loom. It wasn't that bad of a job though.

    I donít have VCDS only Carista which is not showing any fault codes. Think I may just get it to a garage and get them to plug it in and see if they can tell me which one it is
