Welcome (I see this is you first post)!

That is a hard problem to diagnose without you having done any other investigation. Find someone (or a friendly mechanic) with VCDS and you'll need to do a scan on it.

If you can't do that, do the easy things first. Check wiring. Check fuses. Check your battery voltage (running and engine off).

right oh,
I already have vag-com as I use to have a Passat will have to dig it out of storage and see what it comes up with then,
checked the only fuse I could find that was related (number 2 drivers side dash panel) but this was ok
with no lights or sound my initial thought would be a control module or relay do you know where these would be located?
thanks

What does the parking button on the dash do?
When I press mine nothing happens, what should happen
Thanks

The button on the dash should turn the sensors on and off. Useful when you're at a drive through or 4 wheeling. Otherwise they'll scream at you, thinking you're about to run over an ATM or the poor high school kid at the drive up window.
