    Just fitted a front and rear kit on the wifes Zafira, I also added a CAN Bus adaprtor that offers a 12v switch below 6mph. past 6mph the front sensors switch off , they also do pre Can Bus adaptors (IIRC) for older cars that will do the same

    I can get the part numbers etc if you want to look at this option

    Hi guys,

    Here are the details of the kit I installed in to the Zafira, I started out looking to retro fit the Vauxhall PDC kit , but for the hassle and cost of having it all TECH2'd and opted for an altertive after market option,

    I went for quality parking sensors and I wanted the kit to be the best thing to factory fitted,

    1st of all I went for the Steel-mate 8 sensor kit with twin displays as they are small enough to hide in the car , (I'll get some pictures up over the weekend of the install)

    Here is the sensor kit, they come with 18mm flush head sensors



    Then I looked at the front options as I didn't want to fit a on/off switch as thats not OEM !

    I went to a CAN Bus interface that basically offers a 12v feed below 6mpg past 6mph if will turn off the front sensors, that working with the sensors means they will only work sub 6mph and ONLY if they pick up an object, they will not power up if you are driving up the road a 5mph as there is nothing for the sensors to read, so its a close to Factory install as I could get and works really well, better than the factor kit in another Zafira we test drove.



    this connects to CAN Hi and CAN LO found on the OBM port thou you can sometime pull this feed off the Quad lead on the head unit, think it only works on NAV etc , then the feed goes to the Park Brake wire on the front sensors, they do offer a Pre CAN Bus system for older Vectra's ,

    I purchased the kit from one of my suppliers but you can see more detials on the steel-mate web site, I may be able to get some discount for you if enough people wanted the CAN-BUS interface (not sure if I can promote a group buy ?)

    Hope you find it helpful ??

    Cheers Mark
