    Default Rear parking sensors (oem)

    i have these fitted to my rear bumper already, however they werent connected. the plug was just tied up under the bumper, a kind of semi circle shaped plug. i traced roughly to were the plug would go, and found a grommet in the boot floor, kind of in front of the spare wheel well. i pulled the tim out and voila,

    there is a semi circle shaped socket, well actually theres two. a black one and grey one, so i plugged it in, really cos i preferred this to it being tied underneath the car.

    i think it is safe to say that, one of these plugs is for a tow hook and the other for the parking sensors, but which is which. i cant seem to find a definiive answer on the search function.

    and what else do i need for it to work? is it just a case of tech2?

    BTW, its a 2004 2.0DTi estate

    You would also need the park pilot module fitted to the REC, and probaly also the park pilot speaker.

    but yes one of those plugs is for the park pilot.

    Sounds as if yours, like mine was half prepped for park pilot. All you need is the park pilot module, power loom and roof mounted speaker then a Tech 2 session to activate it all.

    PP module is next to the rear fuse box. PP switch is (from memory) above the TC switch.

    These are the notes I made when doing the mod. I had to change the colour of the wires, due to what I had at the time and obviously the front's won't really matter to you.
