To stand any chance of success with your idea you'd need to use the original Citroën reversing sensors and wiring loom, then get the car connected up to a Lexia or Proxia to tell the BSI that reversing sensors have been fitted. That may work but it would partly depend on whether reversing sensors were an option on your particular model and whether the BSI is able to recognise the sensors. The fact that reversing sensors were available on other models does not mean that the BSI on your car will be able to recognise them.GB wrote:Any hints on installing reversing sensors in a C5 hatch?
Since the car features can bus/multiplexing, can I simply connect the sensor unit to the reversing light wiring (somewhere in the c-pillar)? Any precautions to take?
For instance on my Berlingo 1.6 HDi the BSI had been programmed by Citroën not to recognise cruise control whereas on my previous 2.0 HDi it had.
For the definative answer ask a Citroën dealer although they may be reluctant to enable your proposed change to the BSI as Citorën UK have clamped down on such modifications recently.
However, if you want to give it a go I know of two people who own a Lexia and one of them isn't very far from you
