    Is this "if your sensors are bleeping after you install them" because of the 5 volt pulse to check the light bulb???

    Question Wiring Diagram

    On your diagram, you show the bulb live going to two points on the relay... are you sure this is the right way to wire it? Shouldn't one of those points go to the live of a power source not monitored by the car?

    I'm about to wire mine in you see and want to be absolutely sure this is the way to do it!

    My understanding was that drawing any current from the bulb live would cause the car to display a warning.

    Could you explain how this diagram works and confirm that it is the one you used? - Really don't want to mess up my car!!

    You may find that you don’t not the relay ,,,,, but some kits will try to power up on the voltage the fault system uses

    The relay is only there to stop the feed back from the buld fault system in the car

    Fit the kit without first ,,,,,,,,and try it without but if you can hear it start to bleep as the fault system pulses you will need to put the relay in to stop the feed back to the reversing sensors


    i know what you are thinking about the relay but befor the sensor gets it power the relay need to switch and that needs about 9 volts to switch it

    hope this helps
