    if the switch is a push on push off
    just take a live from the passenger fuse box and run it through the switch and to the parking sensor box then to take the earth from that and earth it.

    Cant you wire it into the brake lights so you can activate them by touching the break and slowly moving forward

    The dash switches only make the connection whilst the switch is still being pressed in, so no luck wiring them directly. You could bodge a timer in though.

    There are some kits out there where the brake light actually triggers a timer to power the sensors. I use an 8 sensor Steelmate kit where the time is integrated to the control box. The reverese light powers the rear sensors and the brake light triggers a 30 second timer to power the fronts.
