    Default OEM Rear Parking sensors

    I've just picked up a tasty SRi XP rear bumper complete in flame red (from the usual place!) and it even has the OEM parking sensors installed with the wiring loom. I installed an aftermarket Nikkai parking kit into my current SRi bumper so was wondering about my options.

    Option 1 is obviously to keep the OEM parking sensors and get whatever else to enable the parking pilot feature and rip out the aftermarket stuff. I'm guessing a module and tech2 session required for this. Perhaps someone can help me out with what I would need here? The wiring from the OEM sensors consists of a multiplug (which I assume feeds the parking sensors) and two additional normal style plugs also built into that part of the wiring... although not sure what they are for. Am I likely to be able to hook these straight into the rear car loom or would parking pilot require a specific option loom that connects the OEM sensors to the front of the car?

    Option 2 is adapting the OEM sensors to work with the aftermarket module and display. I'm guessing this might be possible. I have some old sensors I can butcher for the cable and could test crudely by connecting the old sensor wires into the multiplug... assuming this would work and I knew what the pinout was for the sensors!

    Option 3 is to remove the OEM sensors and re-drill the bumper to refit the aftermarket sensors. Don't fancy this though. The OEM sensors look much better and are sunken into the bumper.

    So anyway... whatever help or advice I can get I would really appreciate

    Thanks in advance!

    OEM sensors will need a parking pilot module and a switch in dash(optional?), which are rare and may be expensive. Also a tech2 session is required.

    Option2 is good idea.

    I've had a look today and it seems the loom attached to the parking sensors has 2 other plugs which must be for the rear number plate lights. So, I'm guessing the connector for my current number plate lights will be the same as the multiplug one on the parking sensor loom. So to make this work for the rear what else would I need? Control module, speaker and tech2 session?

    I've had a look at adapting the OEM sensors to the aftermarket module, but each wire from the aftermarket sensors goes back to the module and contains only a ground and signal. Each OEM sensor has 3 wires. They all have one black and white, brown and white and one other colour which is unique to each sensor. Does anyone know why there are 3 per sensor? Is it live, ground and signal or something?

    Mods> can you please move this to electrical troubleshooting section... sorry for posting in general.

    Mine were done last week, I did the wiring from the control box backwards and the wiring behind the front bumper, the VX system is miles better than the after market kits.
    The VX kit switches off above 15mph when moving forward and it uses 2 speakers, one in front and one behind so you could close your eyes and tell if you are near something.
    Go with the VX Park Pilot mate, well worth it.

    This is what I have on my new bumper...




    ... so what do I need to enable rear parking pilot only chaps? Not bothered about switches or anything... just want the rear bumper sensors to work with PP or existing aftermarket module and display. Aftermarket module takes 2 pin connection connection from each sensor, these have 3... anyone know what each is for and whether it is possible to adapt to aftermarket module or not?

    You would need the rear 'aftersale' Park Pilot loom, the control box and a tech 2 session. You could remove the sensors, their brackets and the wiring and then try the ones you already have.

    Any idea on part numbers and prices for those bits mate?
