    standard parking sensors

    I have got a zafira gsi rear bumper with the factory fitted parking sensors, (to be fitted)
    I also have the black box of tricks to go with it and the 4 plugs that go in the sensors, Does anyone know where the black box will go (before i take the bumper off) and i was told it is just a plug and play, but im not sure, there are 2 big wide plugs and i think 2 small plugs, but some of the loom has been cut, but was told there is a plug coming from the car.

    Can anyone show any light on this please, and any pics would be good thanks.
    David

    From the diagrams there are a few loops on this unit for towbar options, a coding resistor, a volume loop and the obvious power and earth

    Your never going to know if it works fine until it's fitted with the sensors plugged in

    The box should have a sonic speaker built in
