    Default Rear Parking Sensor Advice

    Hi - wonder if someone can offer some advice, I've just fitted rear parking sensors and the kit has one of the dash mounted LED displays. The control until is fitted near the rear nearside light cluster. What is the best / easiest way to run the cable from there to somewhere on the dashboard?

    Thanks - J.

    The dash mount mount should work wirelessly iirc and you just need to connect it to a + and a - at the front of the car mate.

    Is it a kit like this one mate?

    Hi mate, i have the same wired one, i fed the cable down the back of the dash via the grille under the windscreen (theres a piece which pulls out.), you need to take the glove box out and try to get your hand in there. I then run mine under the rubber strip at the outside edge under the door.
    HTH.

    Thanks all - it's an old Benross Parking Sensor kit (not wireless), bought it of a mate. Brand new, never used so thought I'd give it a go. Pretty easy to get installed just the dashmount part I left out. I'll have a good look at the rubber strips under the door to see if I can figure a route out for it.

    Lift up the door seal at the side panels then pull the side panels off to reveal the wire trunking then just run the cable from the rear of the car beside these wires then up through the glovebox to the display monitor/led display. Then re-fit side panels and door seals job done.
