Mk2 Reverse Sensors on Mk1 ECU


Recommended Posts

Can Mk2 reverse sensors be hooked up to Mk1 Reverse ECU and work? I checked the ECU numbers and they weren't the same, but I was wondering if they will work. I like the smaller mk2 style sensors because they are smaller and was thinking of using them together with a mk2 bumper, but retaining the factory reverse system.

Any advice?

Thanks.

Sorry - reverse sensors?

What are you trying to do?

I would like to use the mk2 park sensors on the mk1 system. For example, if I installed a mk1 rear bumper with the park sensors, would they plug into the mk1 harness, and function properly. Do you think they are compatible?

The only comments I can find state that the Mk2 sensors have a new shape and changed locking mechanism. SO, they might not attach to your bumper without work.

But if I mounted a Mk2 bumper with the Mk2 sensors, and hook up, it might work if they only changed the shape and locking mechanism.

I'm planning to install an aftermarket park sensor system and disable the factory one.

If I wanted to disable the factory park sensors, what would I do?

Would I just diconnect the power to the park sensor ECU? Were would this be located on a RHD car?

The parkassist control unit is plugged into the side of the central locking/alarm control unit.

I believe the alarm control on a RHD car is under the passenger seat.

On my car, I couldn't find the control units like those pictured. Instead, I have attached a picture of an array of connectors into what seems like a single black plastic ecu unit. Actually, it's so small I don't know if it really is an ecu or just a connector box.

I have unplugged my sensors at the bumper-side, and now the speaker emits a constant tone whenever reverse is engaged (which is expected). What I would like to do is to disable the sound and/or ecu (I want to disable the park assist sensors).

I looked in the fuse box, but it seems the reverse system shares the same fuse as the mirrors, so I can't just pull the fuse.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I think you can turn it off using a PST2 or PIWIS tester.

I have never tried but I know there are settings there.
