How the System Works
Installation and Wiring
The 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.
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 all 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.
To provide good coverage of both front and rear end of vehicle, the system comes with 8
sensors (4 front and 4 rear sensors). ™ To have the look of factory installed system, the 8
sensors are in-bumper type (to be installed in the front and rear bumpers by drilling holes
through the bumpers). ™ Controlled by the +12V from the back up light, the rear sensors are
activated when the vehicle is put in reverse. ™ Controlled by both the +12V from the brake light
and the 0V from the back up light (no +12V applied to the back up lights when parking forward),
the front sensors are activated when the brake is applied and parking forward. ™ It comes with
a beeper (audible alert) which beeps faster when vehicle is getting closer to an obstacle and
sounds continuously when vehicle is within 0.4m (1.3ft) from an obstacle.
1. Installation of the Main Control Box
a) Find a flat and clean surface for the main control box inside the vehicle close to driver's side
taillight assembly. For trucks, you may install it inside the driver's side taillight assembly.
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 while wiring. Note: After completing all
wiring, use the double-sided self-adhesive pad (included) to secure it to the vehicle.
c) Insert the 3-pin plug of the power cable for the main control box into its 3-pin socket labeled
"PWR" on the front side of the main control box (Fig. 3).
2. Wiring the Main Control Box
a) Locate the +12V and the (-) negative wires from the back up light near the taillight assembly.
b) Locate the +12V wire from the brake light near the taillight assembly. If necessary, remove
the taillight assembly to locate them. Strip 1/2" of the wires.
c) Connect the red wire of the power cable to the +12V wire of the back up light (Fig. 3).
d) Connect the black wire of the power cable to the (-) negative wire of the back up light.
e) Connect the yellow wire of the power cable to the +12V wire of the brake light.
f) Wrap all connections with vinyl electrical tape.

3. Installation of the Beeper
a) Find a place for the beeper near the middle of the vehicle on the driver side. Place the
beeper in place temporarily without securing it to the vehicle. Note: After completing all
wiring, secure it with the included self-adhesive on the bottom of the beeper.
b) Run the wire of the beeper to the main control box in the back of the vehicle (hide the wire
under the carpet or weather trim).
c) Insert the 2-pin connector of the beeper into its 2-pin socket labeled "DISP" on the front side
of the main control box.
IMPORTANT: (a) To avoid false alert from the system detecting the ground, the sensors should
be mounted between 50cm to 80cm (20" to 32") above the ground and the face of the sensors
need to be vertical or slightly upward angled (Fig.4). (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 15cm (5.9") from the corner of the bumper for better corner coverage.
Note: The bumper surface for mounting the sensors should be as flat and vertical as possible.
Use the plastic sensor spacers with wedged thickness (included) if the surface of the
bumpers is non-vertical.
a) Start with the front sensors, and then the rear sensors. Refer to Fig. 1 and 2 for
mounting height and position of the front and rear sensors.
b) Work under the front and rear bumpers to check the internal structure of them before
marking the positions for drilling holes. If the view is blocked, you may need to remove the
bumpers.
c) With chalk or marker, mark the position of sensors on the bumpers. Make sure that the
sensors can be pushed all the way in and that you can feed the wires through.
d) Drill the holes through the bumpers at the marks with the Φ21mm drill bit included. Note: if
drilling through metal bumper, you will need a bi-metal Φ21mm drill bit (not included).
e) If necessary, smooth the sharp edge of the holes with a polishing head or small round file.
-3-
f) Run the sensor wires into the holes drilled. Push the sensors into the holes. When pushing
the sensors only apply pressure at the edges, not on the middle of the sensor to avoid
damage to the sensor element. The sensors are tapered for a snug fit.
g) Adjust the sensors for non-vertical bumper surface by using/rotating the plastic sensor
spacers with wedged thickness (included).
h) For front sensors, run the sensor wires from the front bumper into the inside of the vehicle
through the existing wiring holes or rubber grommet in the fire wall, and then to the main
control box in the back of the vehicle (hide the wire under the door or weather trim).
i) For rear sensors, run the sensor wires from the rear bumper into the trunk or inside of the
vehicle through the existing small vent or rubber grommet in the rear of the trunk or vehicle,
and to the main control box. Note: Do not cut the excess sensor wires to avoid signal loss.
j) 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.
k) Plug all sensors into their corresponding sockets at the main control box.
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 you have applied brake, 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 audible alert if
an obstacle has smooth ball-shaped or sloped surfaces as such surfaces may not reflect
ultrasonic wave back to the sensors. 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.
Troubleshooting
Testing Your New Parking Sensor System
For the rear sensors, back your vehicle slowly (about 3 miles per hour) to approximately 1.5m
(4.9 feet) from a flat vertical surface such as a wall. Continue to back up slowly and check the
performance against Chart 1. For the front sensors, do the same test while parking forward
slowly with braking.
Note: have somebody watch the vehicle while you are doing the test.
Using the Beeper (Audible Alert)
The beeper beeps faster as vehicle gets closer to obstacle and sounds continuously when
vehicle is within 0.4m (1.3ft) from the obstacle.
