    One of my parking sensors has failed, and according to honda it is going to cost around £200 to fix.

    My question is, if i just bought a set of sensors off ebay (generic non honda ones) will they still work with everything on the dash?

    That's a hard to answer question! To be sure, you ideally should try it out by changing the sensors by non-genuine ones before before buying them. Easy said, I know.
    Concerning the price you mention... I installed last weekend non-genuine Cobra Automotive sensors on my 2011 YM. I had/have nothing on my dash (had no OEM's, nothing). Price: 140 euro for the whole kit, including transport from North Ireland to Belgium.
    I give it a chance of 75% that all will work with non-genuine sensors. But that kind of answer is not what you're looking for, is it?

    Edit: why not buy a second hand sensor from a totalled Accord?

    not exactly but thank you for the reply.

    I guess its worth giving the generic ones a go before having to go to honda.

    Was it a set of generic sensors that you replaced or just the one ?

    Do you have a link to the item you purchased ?

    It was just one that was replaced. I don't have the item listing as the dealership who I bought the car from, purchased the sensors. But I assume they all will do the same job.
