You have a faulty parking aid sensor. Scan the car, should have a fault stored for which sensor.

Have you noticed when the long tone occurs. Typically a long continuous tone means you are at the end or close enough that you shouldnt continue backing. I am not as familiar with Audi but on our BMW it was a slow beep to a long tone. beep at the start of backing, long tone once you were close to something behind you.

I have even been parked with the car running and someone walks behind or in front of the car and the tone/beep goes off.

No no. I know how the normal tone works. As soon as I put it in reverse now, it is a high pitch tone and the backup actual tone system doesn't beep when I'm close to
Something.

Ahh, ok so as Audibaisedguy says, likely a faulty sensor. What year is the car, still under warranty? Likely not a major thing. Any chance the bumper has been bumped on or around any of the sensors?

Not at all. Hasn't touched it. Works all the time. Just happened out of the blue. It's a 2005

I know you said random, so likely will just need to find someone that can check for the error code.

It happens as soon as I put the car in reverse it makes a loud beep. The sensors are clean I dont understand

Its an electrical fault with one of the sensors, just had one fail on my car. The loud beep is the parking aid telling you there is a fault.

I just had my friend use his vag com on it and it's the mid left sensor. He wiped the codes and it works fine now. It also found a window regulator fault?

possibly the rear bumper was really dirty?
I washed my car and it has gone away as far as I can recall.
