    In this case use wireless sensor, and connect the control unit to ignition live.
    Inside the car make a switch to turn the receiver on/off.

    I'm using wired sensors off eBay but just want to know the hole points on front bumper and also can I make a standard parking asset switch turn then on and off like a universal switch would from halfords or maplins.

    I know you said you would prefer not to remove the front bumper, but as removal takes less than 5 minutes AND the parking sensor positions are marked inside the bumper, it's certainly worth considering if no one comes up with the measurements.

    If you do decide to remove the bumper, here's a link to a How2 that will help:

    i doubt you will be able to use the switch as you want to as its designed for
    dront and rear factory fit parking assist,why not just fit the genuine system
    as it is easy to wire in,ive done several and its lot better aswell but if you
    only have a tight budget then just carry on as you are,as ppl have
    mentioned your best remiving the bumper and drilling the holes out from
    behimd for the acurate postions.


    if you decide and want to do the factory park pilot then let me know and i
    be happy to assist on the wiring etc.


    i only like to retro fitting the genuine equipment
