Hi my PDC system has stopped working, I get the car and radar screen come up but with the message PDC failure and the PDC button just flashes, the dealer has investigated and told me 2 sensors in the front need replacing; I have listened for the clicking but none of the sensors click. Would the whole system fail if 2 sensors failed to work ??
Dealer has quoted ?300 for 2 new sensors.

Any help or advise appreciated

When my sensor went in the front, the rest were clicking, maybe if there are 2 done, it doesnt work? Check out ebay for sensors... I have one brand new un-used met. black pdc sensor if you want to buy, lmk.

Mine died 4 weeks ago as well. PDC failure. Brought it back to the dealership and they diagnosed that the rear sensors have died. Replaced them today under warranty. It's a known fault. You should bring the car back as well. Don't mess with aftermarket ones if your 6er is still under warranty. I know, the stock PDC sucks but hey, it will be replaced FOC.
