    OEM Parking Sensor Retro Fit

    Hi Guys

    I have managed to track down a set of front and rear oem parking sensors and before I go and pick them I want to make sure I get all the bits required.

    I know I need

    Front Sensors
    Rear Sensors
    Parking sensor dash button
    Control module

    Is there anything else required

    Wiring looms?
    Two Control modules front & rear?

    Also do the wires for the front sensors run to the control module in the boot?

    Thanks in advance for any help guys. If I (we! thanks again Steve) manage to pull it off we might even manage to post a nice build log.

    Mate think there is only one control module but its more complicated as the front ones sound in the front and the rear ones sound in the rear so you can tell the difference.

    I have had a look on kufatech and there retro fit kit includes:

    1 control unit
    2 buzzers
    1 interior switch
    8 sensors
    2 sensor cables
    2 other pretty serious looking cables

    That sound about right to folk?

    Ok for anyone else who finds a car breaking with the oem front and rears and thinks about stripping them out a word of caution be prepared to abandon the wiring looms! 2 of us spent 4 hours today trying and didn't even get close. What can easily be salvaged are:

    Control unit from rear
    Sensors including the wiring looms for that that is contained within the bumpers
    The 2 speakers

    Realistically that's about it!

    We just set about the rest with snips in the end.

    So anyone got a wiring diagram for oem parking sensors so we can make our own looms?

    As the other person involved in this (former aviation electrical engineer) I can vouch this is a ***** of a job.......

    Has anybody got access to the wiring diagrams for the A4 B6? Realistically, all I need to know is which PIN positions from the control unit go where....
    03MY 52 reg 1.9 TDi 130PS Quattro Sport Avant - 170bhp remap, RNS-E+OEM bluetooth, B7 wiper arms/blades, 4300K HID+nightbreakers/LED sidelights, rear tints, new lights all round, new front/rear screens, frt armrest, s-line kit, cruise/DIS, B7 gearknob/aluminium trims, parking sensors, black grilles, RS4 RARB, S4 front end, black 18" RS6 alloys

    Still waiting..... S4 rear bumper, exhaust tips, coilovers, leather recaro's.... phew...
