The two front sensors shipped with the 6-sensor system are
labeled as ‘E’ and ‘H’. Depending on your specific vehicle or
application, they can be plugged into either the control box’s
ports ‘E’ and ‘H’ or ports ‘F’ and ‘G’ corresponding to the same
sensor locations on the front bumper of vehicle as shown in
Fig. 2 in the User's Manual.
Install the two front sensors to bumper locations ‘E’ and ‘H’ for
better corner coverage of the front bumper, or install to bumper
locations ‘F’ and ‘G’ for a balanced front bumper coverage as
shown in Fig.2 in the User's Manual.
Two additional front sensors can be ordered at our online store
and added to the 6-sensor system to make it a 8-sensor
system as the control box is 8-sensor ready.

How the System Works
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.
To provide good coverage for both front and rear end of vehicle, the system comes with 6 or 8
sensors (2 or 4 front and 4 rear sensors). ♦ To have the look of factory installed system, the 6 or
8 sensors are in-bumper type (to be installed in the front and rear bumpers by drilling holes
through the bumpers). ♦ Controlled by +12V from the back up light, the rear sensors are
activated when the vehicle is put in reverse. ♦ Controlled by +12V from the brake light, the front
sensors are activated when parking/driving forward with foot-braking. ♦ For LED System (F2R4L,
F4R4L), it comes with a wired LED display which shows the distance of an obstacle in front or
rear of the vehicle (displayed as 0.0 if obstacle is within 1 ft or 0.3m). Seven (7) LED Lights
(Green/Yellow/Red) on each side of the distance display indicate both orientation of obstacles
and Safe/Warning/Stop zone. The audible alert (beeper) is built in the display with On/Off switch.
♦ For Beeper Only System (F2R4B ,F4R4B), it comes with a beeper (audible alert) only for easy
installation without cluttering the dash. ♦ The system beeps faster as vehicle gets closer to an
obstacle and sounds continuously when vehicle is within 1 ft or 0.3m from an obstacle.
Note: the front sensors may continue to work for 20 more seconds after foot brake is released.
Tools Needed
Φ21mm drill bit (include), drill, tape measure, chalk or marker, wire stripper, vinyl electrical tape,
cable/wire ties, voltage meter, screw driver set, pliers.
Note: Use a bi-metal 22mm drill bit (not included) if drilling through metal bumpers. For metal
bumpers, holes drilled need to be slightly larger than diameter of sensors.
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 all wiring is correct before powering on the system. (d) During installation, avoid
flatting, perforating, cutting, and extending the wires of sensors to reduce unnecessary signal
loss. (e) Never pull the sensor cables too hard or sensors may not work properly or at all.
1. Installing the Control Box
a) Find a flat and clean surface for the control box inside the vehicle near driver's side taillight
assembly but away from it for least 1 ft. As the control box is not water-proof type, you need
to mount the control box to a location that is protected from water. Keep it away from areas
of high heat, high humidity, direct sunlight, and electromagnetic devices.
b) Place the control box in place temporarily without securing it to the vehicle as you may need
to adjust the location of the control box while wiring. Note: After the system is working
properly, use the double-sided self-adhesive pad (included) to secure it to the vehicle.
c) Insert the 4-pin plug of the power cable for the control box into its 4-pin socket labeled
"PWR" on the front side of the control box. See Fig. 4 (LED System) or Fig.5 (Beeper Only
System).
Important Notes for Installing the Control Box:
Don't mount the control box near or under the dash or in the cab of a truck.
The control box is designed to be mounted near the rear end of a vehicle (near taillight
assembly) to avoid interferences from the engine which may cause false alert such as
continuous beeping and 0.0 display (LED System only).
If Installing the System to a Truck, as the control box is not water-proof type, you may need to
first mount the control box in a small water-proof metal or plastic box (not included with the
system), then fix it to a location near the rear end of the truck.
-3-
Note: Some lights (turn signal/brake/reverse/stop lights) may emit interferences that can affect
the signals the control box receives therefore cause the system to give false alert. After
installation, if you experience false alert caused by turn signal light, or brake/reverse/stop
lights, try to put the control box as far as possible away (at least 1 ft) from the taillight assembly
(or turn signal/brake/reverse/stop lights).
2. Wiring the Control Box - Refer to Fig. 4 (LED System) or Fig.5 (Beeper Only System)
If necessary, remove the taillight assembly and use a voltage meter to verify the wires found.
Strip 1/2" of the wires found for connecting wires together.
a) Locate the +12V and the (-) negative wires from the reverse light near the taillight assembly.
b) Connect the yellow wire of the power cable to the +12V wire of the reverse light.
c) Connect the black wire of the power cable to the (-) negative wire of the reverse light.
d) Locate the +12V wire from the brake light near the taillight assembly.
e) Connect the blue wire of the power cable to the +12V wire of the brake light.
f) Locate the +12V wire from a ACC (accessory) power outlet or ignition under the dash.
g) Connect the red wire of the power cable to the +12V wire of the ACC or ignition.
h) Wrap all connections with vinyl electrical tape.
Note: if there is no ACC +12V wire in the rear end of the vehicle, then the red wire needs to be
extended then connected to ACC or Ignition +12V wire found in the front end of the vehicle (run
the extended wire from the control box to the front end of the vehicle and hide it with the cables
of the front sensors and display under the door or weather trim).
3. Installing the LED Display (for LED System only)
a) Find a place for the display on top of the dashboard where the driver can see it easily. Place
the display in place temporarily without securing it to the top of the dashboard. Note: After
testing the system is working properly, secure it with the included self-adhesive on the
bottom of the display.
b) Run the display wire from the top of the dashboard down to the floor, and then to the control
box in the back of the vehicle (hide the wire with the cables of the front sensors under the
door or weather trim).
c) Insert the 8-pin connector of the display into its 8-pin socket labeled "DISP" on the front side
of the control box.
4. Installing the Beeper (for Beeper Only System)
d) 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 testing the system
is working properly, secure it with the included self-adhesive on the bottom of the beeper.
e) Run the wire of the beeper to the control box in the back of the vehicle (hide the wire under
the carpet or weather trim).
f) Insert the 2-pin connector of the beeper into its 2-pin socket labeled "DISP" on the front side
of the control box.
5. Installing the Sensors
IMPORTANT: (a) To avoid false alert from the system detecting the ground and for best
obstacle detecting results, the suggested sensor mounting height is between 20" to 32" (0.5m to
0.8m) above the ground and the face of the sensors need to be vertical or slightly upward
angled (Fig. 3). (b) Horizontally, the sensors may be equally spaced if possible or symmetric to
the center of the bumper (Fig.1 and 2). (c) For better corner coverage, the outer two sensors
may be mounted about 5.9" (0.15m ) from the corner of the bumper (Fig.1 and 2). (d)
Adjustments to the sensors mounting positions may be needed for your specific vehicle.
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.
For exact color match, you may have the sensors spray-painted. For best results, spray paint
no more than two thin coats (not to be applied with brush or touch-up). And it is recommended
-4-
that you have the sensors professionally painted by an auto body shop.
Note: although the sensors can be spray-painted for exact color match to your vehicle,
sensors painted void warranty on them.
a) Start with the front sensors, and then the rear sensors. Refer to Fig. 1 and 2 for the
recommended 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. Remove the bumpers if the view is blocked.
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) Note: If you have a 6-sensor system, install the two front sensors to bumper locations ‘E’
and ‘H’ for better corner coverage of the front bumper, or install to bumper locations ‘F’ and
‘G’ for a balanced front bumper coverage as shown in Fig.2
e) 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 Φ22mm drill bit (not included).
Holes drilled in metal bumpers need to be slightly larger than diameter of sensors.
f) If necessary, smooth the sharp edge of the holes with a polishing head or small round file.
g) 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.
h) Adjust the sensors for non-vertical bumper surface by using/rotating the plastic sensor
spacers with wedged thickness (included).
i) 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 control
box in the back of the vehicle (hide the wires under the door or weather trim).
j) 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 control box.
Note: Do not cut the excess sensor wires to avoid signal loss. Never pull to hard on the
sensor wires or it may cause the system not to work properly.
k) 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.
l) Plug all sensors into their corresponding sockets at the control box.
Note: Only use Sensor A, B, C, and D as rear sensors, and Sensor E, F, G, and H as front
sensors. Don't switch the front sensors with the rear sensors or it may cause false alert such as
continuous beeping and 0.0 display (LED System only).
Installing Sensors in Metal Bumpers
If you have a continuous beeping or false alert problem after installation of the system, unplug
all sensors from the control box, and then plug back in one sensor at a time then test to find out
which specific sensor(s) is causing the problem.
After you find the sensor that is causing the false alert, please check if the sensor hole in the
bumper is too tight as instructed below:
Pull the sensor out of its hole in the bumper for about 0.5 inch, tape it to the bumper so it faces
upward a little bit and see if the false alert stops. If yes, then the hole drilled for the sensor is a
little bit tight which can apply pressure on the sensor and or cause resonance and make the
system give false alert. If this is the case, then carefully enlarging the hole a little bit with a small
round file should solve the problem.
Testing Your New Parking Sensor System
For the rear sensors, back your vehicle slowly (about 3 miles per hour) to approximately 4.9 ft
(1.5m) from a flat vertical surface such as a wall. Continue to back up slowly and check the
performance against Chart 1 (LED System) or Chart 2 (Beeper Only System).
For the front sensors, do the same test while forward-parking slowly with foot-braking.
Note: have somebody watch the vehicle while you are doing the test.

Using the Display (for LED System, F2R4L , F4R4L)
The display has a built-in beeper (audible alert) with On/Off Switch. There are seven (7) LED
Lights (3 Green, 2 Yellow, 2 Red) on each side of the two-digit distance display (Fig. 4). The
color LED lights indicate both orientation of obstacle and Safe/Warning/Stop zone (Chart. 1).

Warnings
● Detection Range of the System
The parking sensor system detects obstacle by emitting ultrasonic wave and receiving
reflected ultrasonic wave from an obstacle. Different materials have different reflection and
absorption of the ultrasonic wave, and the actual detection distance varies depending on what
materials an obstacle is composed of. Human skin and clothes actually absorb the ultrasonic
wave, and can only reflect very small portion of the ultrasonic wave back to the sensors,
hence the system may detect human skin and clothes within a much shorter range
compared to other materials. Drivers in these situations should pay more attention while
parking their vehicles.
● 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.
● 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 at all. Drivers in these situations should pay
more attention while parking their vehicles.
● 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.
