    Default Parking sensors

    So, i'm looking at buying a parking sensor kit for the back of the siggy and wiring it off the reverse light circuit but what about a front set? I haven't really heard of people retrofitting the fronts but if you have, where's a good place to power them from?

    You have a few options bud, you can get a can bus adaptor that will use a speed signal to switch the sensors off over a certain speed (think it's from a company called steelmate and it's about 50 quid)

    Second option is to fit a relay that will activate the sensors for 30 or so seconds after the car has been in reverse

    Third option is a simple on off switch

    HTH

    I was thinkin about this last night for when my missus has to use the car, didnt want to wire them strait in coz it wud p*** me off bleeping in traffic, so was gonna either go for the switch idea, or like on my old mondeo the electronic boot popper would only work below 5mph, so similar principle. Main reason is ive got a spare set, i orderd blue, they sent black, so when they send me replacements in blue, of coarse i posted the wrong ones back.....not!
