    Default Which switch - parking sensor

    Hi I have fitted parking sensors front and rear and wired them into the switched live in the boot. Work fine.
    What i want to do now is be able to turn them off from the dash as I have a trailer.
    I would like some advice; what vauxhaul switch can i use, do they require relays or can i just run a wire from my switched live in the boot through any switch i choose to buy from vauxhaul (i can only use bottom 2 on the right and bottom 1 on the left console)and then link into my sensor box.
    any advice welcomed.

    thanks

    I would buy a Vx parking switch then turn both sensors front and back on with one switch.

    If it were me I would wire the back sensors into the reverse light feed and have a switch to turn the rear off. I would have another switch to turn the front ones on & off.

    never thought about getting the Vx parking sensor switch - how dim am I.

    AS for the wiring they are wired into the reverse lighhts which works fine and also the front ones are wired into the brake, which works fine with it being an automatic.

    I just wanted a way of turning them off when i hitched my trailer up.
    I'll get the parking sensor switch, cheers.

    Simple switch in to boot will be easiest.
