    Aftermarket reverse parking sensors

    Has anyone fitted aftermarket reverse parking sensors to a MK5 Astra?

    Is there any issue with wiring them to the Canbus system?

    I fitted some on a mk5 5 door a couple of months ago mate and was very easy. Earth wire was the main brown one in the loom, cant remember the live but they worked perfect afterwards, no issues. That was an X-vision kit..

    After market parking sensors won't be connected to the CANbus, they will just connect to earth & the reverse feed for power, everything else will be independant.
