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!
