    Question Parkpilot Switch Pin Out Configuration

    Does anyone know the Parkpilot pin configuration.

    I have 5 pins on the factory switch that I want to rewire to handle an aftermarket Parkpilot URF7 front & rear.

    There are two sets of pin:

    Pin 6
    Pin 5
    Pin 4

    Pin 2
    Pin 1

    I am guessing that 1 would be ground, 1 a feed for LED illumination, 1 for the switch - and maybe 2 for Canbus?

    Any help appreciated. TIA

    Spookily I was going to ask the same question as my switch turned up today, I think it will need a little 'attention' before it will work how I want it to...

    I have opened up the switch housing, picture attached and I reckon the following is how I need to rewire/amend to switch on (via a timer circuit) the front sensors.

    Pin 1 = On LED feed
    Pin 2 = Dim LED feed

    Pin 4 = Neutral / Earth for LED
    Pin 5 = Will become return for switch
    Pin 6 = Feed for switch.

    I will be wiring Pin 1 to the output from the timer circuit and isolating any connections between Pins 4 & 5 so they can act independently



    (Sorry for the poor image quality)


    It seems a shame to have to butcher a £20 switch, but to get it to do as I wish, needs must. There are additional connections on the rear that will need cutting as well.

    I will try to take some photos of the adaptation of the switch, the timer circuit and wiring so that others can try to follow (assuming I can get it all to work this weekend...)

    Sounds great will help me when I have to do the same, although as I am using the Parkpilot setup the functionality will work the same as the standard so the timer will not be needed.

    I don't know your setup but the standard parkpilot switch (3 pins, one for LED illumination, 1 Ground, 1 Switch) that came with my URF7 so I guess I don't need to butcher the OEM switch - all I need is the On/Off, LED On, LED dim.

    I haven't tested whether the BCM supplies 12V even if Parkpilot is not setup via Tech2 but I will test with a multimeter.

    My choice now is to whether I cut the pins of the switch and wire from the PCB or think about modding the connector in the frame as the wires will not be used, I will have to see how much play there is in the connector of whether the connector is reusable.
