Has anyone else had any issues with the front and side parking sensors?

When we first got the car they were working fine and now a month in they never seem to be working when the parking assist comes up on the screen it indicates they need wiping but we’ve checked and they aren’t dirty.

The pre-sense seems to be having issues working too. Just wondering if anyone else had come across this before I contact Audi.

I get occasional pre-sense not working warnings on cold days if the car's still demisting. Never issues with parking sensors after 14 months though.

You have front parking sensors!, Lucky you. Should be standard in all models for the price of these things. I often get the Audi pre sense come on for no reason.

I get pre-sense warnings say twice a week and for no obvious reason. The front sensors work but don’t always beep.

I did pay extra for the front parking sensors, which is why I feel even more disappointed when they don't work. Strangely seem to be working a bit more consistently the last week or so. Doesn't sound like anyone else is having this issue, so I think I'll just need to keep an eye on them and potentially raise it with Audi.

Hi. Q4 Sportbak 23 plate Sline, and just started to get parking sensor warning at the front come on randomly or when I brake... also the pre-sense and also take over the steering warning too.

Seems very random and as mentioned in someone else post the sensors don't always beep front/back.

Second issue on 1yr old car, isn't filling me with a lot of confidence on build quality. Already had issue with rear "spoiler" letting in water to the boot. Could be another dealer visit via the lease company.

Seems after a dealer check up, one of the sensors has been "chipped" by a stone while driving

So all the front sensors need to be replaced, thankfully on company maintenance, as not covered under warranty.

£650 at least for Leasing company to pick up.

Wow, that would have been painful. You would have thought only the damaged sensor would need replacing but I suppose as someone else is paying the garage can charge what they like.

Finally got mine into the garage and they discovered they weren’t working as one of the front ones was faulty so they needed to replace it. Got the car back yesterday and the sensors are now working, however have noticed today that the lane departure and distance warning (car in front) are now not working!!
