    Default Reversing sensor wiring

    Hi all, treated the vec to Maplins reversing sensor kit, after one bumper scrape too many.
    After reading and asking q's ok with the job, just got one query for those that have done it, is it easier to wire the display/beeper bit straight down the middle of the cabin, or sideways, under the dash and along the sill. Seem to have around 20ft of cable there to connect to control unit in boot.

    I cant answer your post but the clips that hold the back seat bench in are £8.50 each if you break one, So if you can find a route that doesnt need the rear seats lifting your probably on a winner.

    Ive read some people put the display part on the back shelf so you view it in the rear view mirror, saves running wires up to front of the car..

    from the rear run the cable along the side until you get to the rear of the front seats. If you feel the back underside of the seat you will feel hook type things on the frame. pass the cable under the chair (using the hooks to hold the cable) towards the centre console and run along to the front. The cubby under the radio would be ideal mounting place.

    I dont have the display on my kit but this is the route i have used to power my 6x9's

    Hope this is of some help

    Personally form my old car radio wiring days it is almost always easyer to run the wiring down the side (sill) of the car and up behind the glovebox.

    Thanks Keithy, that cubbyhole is in fact where I intend putting it, so that's not a bad plan.
    Crespo, not disregarding yours yet, I've had to rewire pretty much all the stereos on my classics, some where easier down the side, some down the middle. Never done a Vec so getting a heads up lol
