How the System Works
The Backup Parking Sensor System determines obstacle distance by measuring the time needed for the
ultrasonic wave emitted by a sensor to reach an obstacle and for the sensor to receive the ultrasonic wave
reflected from the obstacle. Given the speed of the ultrasonic wave, the system can then calculate and display
the distance between the sensor and the obstacle.
The main control box and the wireless display get their power by tapping into the back up light wires so that the
system will work only when vehicle is put in reverse. ™ It is supplied with a wireless digital distance display which
shows the exact distance from an obstacle and eliminates the wiring between the display and main control box.
This is especially convenient for installation on long vehicles. ™ Three (3) LED Lights (Green/Yellow/Red) on
each side of the wireless distance display indicate both orientation of obstacles and Safe/Warning/Stop zone. ™
The audible alert (beeper) is built in the wireless display with volume control (Off/Low/High). It beeps faster as
vehicle gets closer to obstacle and sounds continuously when vehicle is within 1ft (0.3m) from the obstacle.

Installation and Wiring
IMPORTANT: (a) Read this manual thoroughly before proceeding to installation. You can also have the system
installed by a professional installer such as your local auto mechanic/auto electrician/car stereo store. (b) Turn off
the engine and ACC during installation. (c) Double check that the wiring is correct before power on the system. (d)
During installation, avoid flatting, perforating, cutting, and extending the wires of sensors to reduce unnecessary
signal loss.
1. Installation of the Main Control Box
a) Find a flat and clean surface inside the vehicle or underneath the vehicle close to the driver's side taillight
assembly as the waterproof main control box gets its power from the back up light and has all the rear
sensors plugged into it. Keep it away from areas of high heat, high humidity, direct water contact, direct
sunlight, and electromagnetic devices.
b) Place the main control box in place temporarily without securing it to the vehicle as you may need to adjust
the location of the main control box slightly while wiring.
c) After completing all wiring, use the 2 screws included to secure the main control box to the vehicle. You will
need to drill two 1/8” holes through the mounting surface corresponding to the two screw holes on each side
of the main control box.
2. Installation of the Wireless Digital Distance Display
a) Find a place for the wireless digital distance display on top of the dashboard where the driver can see it
easily. Place the wireless display in place temporarily without securing it to the top of the dashboard.
b) After completing all wiring, secure it with the included self-adhesive on bottom of the display bracket.
3. Wiring - Power Supply to the Wireless Digital Distance Display
a) Insert the 3-pin mini plug of the power cable of the Wireless Display into its socket on back of the display.
b) Locate the +12V (or +24V) and the (-) negative wires from the reverse gear for the back up lights under the
dashboard or near the reverse gear.
c) Strip 1/2" of the wires found.
d) Connect the red wire of the power cable to the +12V (or +24V) wire (Fig. 4).
e) Connect the black wire of the power cable to the (-) negative or chassis ground (Fig. 4).
f) Wrap the connections with vinyl electrical tape.
Note: You can also connect the red wire to the ignition switch or ACC. But connecting it to the reverse gear or
back up light is better as the display only needs to work when the vehicle is put in reverse.
4. Wiring - Power Supply to the Main Control Box
a) Plug the BNC type connector of the power cable of the Main Control Box into its socket on the left side of the
main control box labeled POWER.
b) Locate the +12V (or +24V) and the (-) negative wires from the back up light near the taillight assembly. If
necessary, remove the taillight assembly to locate them.
c) Strip 1/2" of the wires found.
d) Connect the red wire of the power cable to the +12V (or +24V) wire (Fig. 2).
e) Connect the black wire of the power cable to the (-) negative or chassis ground (Fig. 2).
f) Wrap the connections with vinyl electrical tape.
5. Installation of the Sensors
IMPORTANT: (a) To avoid false alert from the system detecting the ground, the sensors should be mounted
between 20" to 32" (50cm to 80cm) above the ground and the face of the sensors need to be vertical or slightly
upward angled. (b) Horizontally, the sensors should be equally spaced if possible or symmetric to the center of
the bumper. (c) The outer two sensors should be mounted about 5.9" (15cm) from the corner of the bumper for
better corner coverage.
a) Refer to Fig. 1 for mounting height and position of the sensors.
b) The four (4) sensors supplied with this system are under bumper type (each sensor is pre-fitted in a sensor
bracket with two screw holes for easy under bumper installation). Under the bumper, with chalk or marker,
mark the position of sensors, then the two screw holes corresponding to the two screw holes on each sensor
-3-
bracket. Use a 1/8” drill bit to drill the holes at the marks.
c) Secure the sensor brackets underneath the bumper with the screws included.
d) Run the sensor wires to the main control box. Do not cut the sensors wires. Attach sensor wires to the
vehicle body with cable/wire ties so that they will not get in the way of any moving parts and there are no
loose wires hanging down.
e) Plug one sensor at a time into its corresponding socket at the main control box, start the engine and put the
vehicle in reverse, put a flat board as an obstacle in front of the sensor, the display should show the correct
obstacle distance, repeat the procedure for the remaining sensors. Note: When you shift into reverse, the
system may beep once indicating it is activated.
Note: For some vehicles, you may find it is easier to install the sensors to a metal bar first, and then secure the
metal bar underneath the bumper.
Testing Your New Backup Parking Sensor System
Back your vehicle slowly (about 3 mile/hour) to approximately 8.2 feet (2.5m) from a flat vertical surface such as a
wall. Continue to back up slowly and check the performance against Chart 1.
Using the Wireless Digital Distance Display
A. Understanding the Display
(a) There are three (3) LED Lights (Green/Yellow/Red) on each side of the two-digit distance display (Fig. 3). The
color LED lights have two functions: indicating the orientation of obstacle and showing if you are in
Safe/Warning/Stop zone. See Chart. 1 below for details.

(b) The display has a built-in beeper (audible alert) with volume switch (High/Low/off) on the left side of the
display (Fig. 4) and an ID code setting button on the bottom of the display (Fig. 5).
B. Setting the ID code of the Display
Note: The ID code of the display has already been set in the factory. You only need to reset it if you find the
display can not work properly or communicate with the main control box.
Each main control box of the wireless system has its own ID code, and the display is set to only recognize the ID
code from its own main control box. If the display doesn’t work properly with the main control box, the ID code
-4-
needs to be reset as follow:
Ö Power on the main control box. Make sure no other main control boxes are working nearby.
Ö Power on the display, press the wireless ID code setting button on the bottom of the display with a small flat
head screw driver until you hear one beep followed by two beeps indicating the display is set successfully.
Warning
z To avoid collision with obstacle because of the inertia of vehicle while backing up/parking, keep your vehicle
speed at about 3 miles per hour and stop the vehicle immediately once you hear the continuous beeping.
This is because even if the brake is applied, your vehicle will still go for some distance (inertia) before it comes
to a complete stop.
z Because the back up parking system detects obstacle by emitting ultrasonic wave and receiving reflected
ultrasonic wave from obstacle, the system may fail to give both visual and audible alert if an obstacle has
smooth ball-shaped or sloped surfaces as such surfaces may not reflect ultrasonic wave back to the sensors.
Obstacle surfaces absorbing ultrasonic wave such as human body and clothes will reduce the detection
distance of the system. Drivers in these situations should pay more attention while parking their vehicles.
z In heavy falling rain or snow, the system may give alert as falling rain or snow may be detected as obstacles.
Keep surface of sensors clean of snow, mud, dirt, and other debris.
