    Default latest update on retro fitting parking pilot



    right ppl as you may well know i had the project in retro fitting factory fit
    front and rear park pilot,well as you can see in the piccy below,i made up
    the relevant loom yesterday then i fitted it to the car from front bumper to
    the rear rec,wired it all up and then this evening i dragged me m8 round with
    tech2,he now has it all working as he had it on test on the tech2 which was
    showing that as he drove forward or reverse the distances that were
    showing on tech2 were reducing when going forward and increasing when
    reversing but there`s a fault code showing on tech2 saying that there`s an
    open circuit going to the buzzer speaker so after studying the wiring diagram
    again i have now found that there shud be another 2 cables from the front
    park pilot plug which i have fitted to 1 of the rec plugs so once again i`ll be
    removing the rear quarter trim for the 6th time tomoz and then it shud be
    all working and finished.

    yeah it certainly is and you can imagine how my head is feeling over it
    upto now.

    but then again doing this project will help others along if they want to do the same
    and i`ll then know exactly how its done.

    oh and all this just because vauxhall cant just fit 1 wiring loom to all the cars,penny piching
    and prevents ppl like me in retro fitting stuff but it doesnt stop me.
