Newbie here, returned home with an 08 plate Mondeo Titanium today. I gave up trying to get one with parking sensors already installed as they seem to be rare and on more expensive examples.... but its a biiiiig car and England has smaaaall car parks!!
I'm on a budget but really want the "factory" sensor fit, I'm aware there are after-market kits you can get and I'm happy and confident I can source and fit these but I want to do it "properly".
The question; does anyone know if the vehicles are already fitted with any of the necessary parking sensor factory equipment? ie wiring, control modules etc? I'm suspecting not but have read other topics on parking sensor switches that plug into available ports etc so wondered what the options were. I'm assuming at some point I would need to go to Ford for a software flash to enable the function if nothing else.
Alternative; are there any after-market kits that can tap into the audio and emit the "beep" from the car speakers (as the factory version would)? I'm just not too keen on putting a horrible little beeper in my lovely new Mondeo (I remember a trailer electrics kit I fitted to a previous car that emitted a deafening electronic BEEP which had me terrified to indicate!)
Next approach is to ask for a quote for the retro-fit but I anticipate that option being outside my budget!!
Thanks all, wish me luck in my new steed.
