Hi Everyone,

E46 2002 325i

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I have done wrong?

I just installed the PDC today (double & triple check the wiring).When I put the car in reverse, I just get a ring tone for about 5 seconds from the gong. Then I reverse and :bawling: the PDC don't work.


Any suggestions??????

thanks
Dennis

Do I need to take the car to my dealer for coding the PDC unit?

You definitely need a MoDiC III or DIS Tester for coding. See step 8 in your installation instructions.

*edit - I'm thinking you don't have the install instructions. I can email them to you if you care to provide me with your address.

I got the instructions thank you :bow: . It said "For optimal adaptation of the PDC retrofit system to the specific vehicle, coding of the PDC control unit is required."
I though that it should still work without coding the PDC unit.

Would you mind sharing this if it is for a E46

The PDC should just work without any coding. The most common problem is that non-genuine backup sensors won't work in all four locations. I forget if it's the inner two or the outer two that must be genuine. You can verify if this is the problem by testing the system using INPA.

i am looking to grab the system from an m3 and i am thinking i will be picking up new sensors since the system is most likly from a junkyard.
I thought you had the install instructions which i was going to educate my self so i know what exactly i am picking up, but i guess i could do that with realoem as well.
