I have just purchased a 1993 740il.
I have spent approximately $9,000 bringing it up to a great motor car, unfortunately it has now developed a problem with the parking sensors, sometimes (rarely) they work properly.
However on most occasions when I start the car in the garage and place it in reverse they make a constant sound and it does not stop, even when I move out of range of any objects.

Does anyone have any idea where the problem would be or what I could do to locate it.

I have one sensor that seems to "stick." Very, very frequent cleaning seems to make it better.
