    Default Power for parking sensors...

    I've just fitted some from parking sensors, have made a switch inside the car etc, but am just wondering what I should run it off, the rears are run off the reverse light... SOoooo... I was thinking of using the fog lights as the power as I rarely use them and I have a breaking switch for the parking sensors... Any ideas?

    I do believe in order for them to work you need the live feed from the reversing light

    I would wire the rears to revere light then have the front ones on a switch take power feed from battery through into dash on a switch,that way you can activate it manually,some kits have a speed sensor whitch activates front sensors when you drop below a certain speed
