Hi. I have a 14 plate bmax. The reversing sensors have recently gone very quiet. They still work but they're barely audible. Any ideas how I can restore the volume? Thanks

Maybe a master reset could help restore the..? :-?Edited by: vdragoslav

I didn't think you could but what about adjusting the normal volume knob when the sensors are active?

The other thing I'm wondering, where is the speaker for the sensors? Maybe you've inadvertently covered one of them up?

Not aure on the b max, but the speaker may be behind the drivers seat or even in the boot, in which case a full boot might deaden or somethig on the floor behind the seat.

I will be using the car with a full boot soon, so i may test the theory.

Thank you for replying. I've emptied the whole car to no avail. Tried the volume too and searched the menus. No luck so far.

You can't adjust the volume level.You can do a system reset by disconnecting the battery for 10 mins or so.
You will then need to re-programme the power windows and the car may not run perfectly until 2/3 miles.
Otherwise it's a visit to the dealer i'm afraid.

Slightly different issue but my son's car, a Kia Ceed, has an on/ off switch for the reverse warning beep. Maybe Ford could consider something similar, because to be frank if I had a car full of people and they were all talking whilst I was reversing, I couldn't hear the damned thing anyhow and would probably be better turning it off.

Tell them to shut up !!

That's one option, I suppose, if I don't mind falling out with them. A further option would be disabling it altogether.


I'm not really a fan of these parking aid thingies because I reckon they make you lazy. But then again, I don't live or work in a city where parking opportunities tend to be limited and when they are found, they tend to be tight.

I have just changed from a Cmax to a Bmax and I notice all the warning / information sounds are far lower in a Bmax. I'm looking for a way to boost the sound levels
