Reversing Aids
« on: April 17, 2008, 08:51:53 PM »
Hi, Has any one fitted reversing/parking sensors , the dealer has quoted about £300 to fit but I can buy a diy set for about £50 on the internet,  The trick is to find the power supply to the reversing lights so that the sensor box can be connected up. Has any one tried this ?

surely you can just use the positive terminal from the lights themselves and any part of the chassis will complete the circuit as the whole car is a ground.

Got it in one minton, the reverse light bulb holder has two wires to it, ones the power and the other is an earth, pick up on the power and ground out on a bolt around the area somewhere.
