    Default Gadgetman reverse sensor wiring help required

    So I buy the sensors off ebay and wire them in first to check that they work, positive to bottom white/black wire from light cluster and neg to earth. Nothing

    I then have to take the kids into town to buy something for mothers day, so leave the sensors wired up in the boot and when I indicate left I get a beep, in time with the indicator

    The problem is I have a facelift estate and the reversing lights are on the tailgate.

    Does anyone know where I can attach the positive wire as when I looked at the wiring loom coming from the top of the tailgate they were all black

    Thanks in advance.

    The estate reverse lights come off a black line (1 each) from the REC - XR6A/11 and XR6A/12 (RH & LH rev lamps respectively).

    The high level brake lamp is a black line (surprise) coming off XR6A/8.

    Identify those (somehow) on your REC and you've got it nailed.

    Stop moaning! Just stick the hazards on when you reverse!
