Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

As the heading suggests, I want to know if it's possible to fit parking sensors on a 1998 9000 CS and what kind of a job it is, particularly the connection into the audio system or 'buzzer'.

I have a set of them that I bought a fair while ago and only recently re-discovered, so I would use those if possible (no idea what make and they are in France so no chance to check out currently).

Presumably this is applicable to any 9000.

Cheers
Mike

As far as I am aware you can't integrate a parking sensor system into a 9000. You can fit an independent system however. Most systems will contain all you need so the hardest part will be around the bumper.

Piece of cake. Check my cars build thread....

Buy a universal parking sensor kit. Fit as i have shown in my thread.
The reversing light wire is the WHITE wire in the large plug behind the rear left speaker. Tap into this for the activation feed for the sensor kit.

Nice one Paul, I’ll check that out then, hopefully the kit I have will be complete with sounder as you said.
