    Default please i really need help with parking sensor wires!!

    sorry to keep banging on about this but i really need help with the wiring.

    i have front and back parking sensors, i have run all wires to the boot inc the 2 wires from switch on dash, i need to know where the following wires can go in boot terminals

    positive wire +12v
    neg wire -12v

    reverse feed +12v
    front sensors +12v via switch on dash (normally connected to brake feed, but i want to use a switch)

    ive done this so far http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11893 but need to know where to put negative and permanent +12v to front sensor switch

    im getting confused because some threads say use socket 2 pin 4 and others say socket 2 pin 3????????

    please help
