    Default Dashboard switch for parking sensors

    Got myself a set of front and rear parking sensors of fleabay, and will look at fitting next weekend. Now in the instructions it tells me to connect the front sensor to the brake light power, but I prefer a switched live and a switch so I can turn them on/off when I want.

    So as I need a switch does anyone know if I can something factory looking that I can fit in one of the spare blanked off spaces?

    Cheers guys, looks just what I need. One question is it just a simple on/off switch that makes and breaks the live connection?

    Yup, you press it in and it pop back out but stays on, and if you press it again it turns off.

    For a demostration, click here...

    In this case it's turning on my parking sensors and activating the rear camera, but the switch works the same way regardless...

    Oh that does look good I must say, you are starting to give me ideas about upgrading my lowly cd30 unit and cheap screen now

    What screen is that you have, gid etc?

    The funny part is the switch will cost roughly half of what the whole parking sensor kit cost me but will look so much better and hide the fact I am a cheap skate.

    It's all about looking OEM...

    The screen is the Colour Information Display (CID) mated to the CD70 Navi stereo.
