Nothing infront of the sensors like dirt or anything?

Check towbar wiring/plug if fitted.

I had a problem with mine doing the same thing, and a helpful member on here pointed out if they get too wet they can play up, and that was the problem.

has dawned on me that the tow ball tongue is affecting the sensors, is there something that tells the car that it has one on?

Often times a towball shouldn't affect them. But it can. Some can be programmed to ignore it, some can't.

A VERY common fault I see is water getting into the sensors. Not a great deal you can do either. You may be able to pop them out and hit them with a hairdryer. But it can happen again.

If in the event that this not the problem, then it's usually only one that has failed. The control module will be located in the boot somewhere and just needs you to unplug each individually until you find the culprit. The system will work just fine without it. Some will give you a quick error chirp to alert you if one is unplugged and the continue working.

hey mate, this control module, are they all labelled the same? because i found one in my S2 VE UTE labelled as "blinker indicator" or something like that, i thought it would be the blinker system but after reading what you have written could it be connect to the reversing sensors aswell?
