What is CANBUS?
The front parking sensors need a way of being isolated when you are driving so you are not faced with constant alerts.
As standard Front Sensors come with a switch to turn the fronts on and off
(rear sensors are wired to the reverse light so come on and off automatically)
CANBUS is a way of activating the Front Parking Sensors without the need for a switch.How does CANBUS work?
They are wired to the vehicles speed and activate when you brake below 6mph. At this speed they assume you will be parking and activate, they auto turn off was you are driving again above 6mph. they will not activate when the hand brake is on or above 6mph.Advantages:
No need for a switch
No remembering to turn them on or offDisadvantages:
Being aware that will come on if you are going below 6mph and close to objects, even in none parking situations.Technical Specifications: CANBUS - Front Parking Sensor Controller
