    Cheers buddy. I have just found a thread that says it is the black and white cable at the bottom of the plug but feel free to confirm.

    White with black tracer ( be careful there is a pale grey wire with black tracer I first mistook for the reversing light feed)....the other direct to chassis/earth/ground I drilled a small hole in a metal flange behind the sensor kit & self tapper screw.....

    My post below may help ....although this is for a 6 x sensor Kit..2 x front & 4 x rear....

    Electrical Diagram I drew & used to suit my idea for the above...

    Sensor Kit fitted with teporary connection to test operation of my kti.........



    Hope it helps....

    Other thread on here on parking sensors will also help...

    Cheers

    Pre facelift, and on the n/s, TBH if not sure best bet to run a tester over it.
