REVERSE Backup Sensor
If you have an interest in any of the products
in this article, everything featured (electrical tape, connectors,
radio, alarm, wire ties, rca cables, diodes, screws --- everything is available 'now' (FOR SALE!) through our storefront).
Remember, there may be many manufacturers out there who sell similar
products as the ones featured in our articles, but if you want
a problem-free smooth professional install, your only guarantee is to buy the same parts we use (see our storefront).
Any slight difference in any of the parts and your install is
ruined (plus you won't have access to our post sale support or
forums). Especially important for alarm, radio and OEM changer
Sales People (be careful!):
Everyday, we get dozens of requests through
our chat & ticket support system, request for forum passwords,
questions on installation problems or questions. We can only focus on questions from our customers. The questions are simple..
the answers are simple - but these people, because they did not
buy from AUTOTOYS.COM cannot get an answer. Dont make a mistake
by buying through auctions, fly by night operations or new pop
up websites who are just a voice over the phone (a sales person)
with absolutely NO EXPERIENCE.
No experience installing in cars, no experience what-so-ever!
They barely know the products they sell! Don't make that mistake!
Make sure your purchase is from autotoys.com. These articles are
proof we know what we are doing and that we WORK IN CARS! We work on the newest cars with
the newest products.
This article shows an installation
of our MINI TALKING backup sensor system.
This article was written by one of our customers. We felt
it was good enough to be part of the DIY series instead
of being placed in the CUSTOMER PHOTO area.
Interested in this product?
(see our ALARM department under BACKUP SENSORS!) Our backup
sensors are extremely accurate. What makes our backup sensors
unique is some will offer talking voice messages and others
will offer a LCD display. Other cheaper models (which we
do not sell) will 'just' beep!

installation shots of the Autotoys Mini 1t Car Reversing
Aid on my 2001 Volvo V70T5.
reversing radar exceeded all my expectations.
It detects 8', 5', 3', 2', 12", & crash! It's small,
accurate, and less expensive than the competition - $159
for the big unit from IPD, +++$500 bucks for the Volvo factory
item. It works as good as my neighbor's BMW 740il factory
system. Autotoys delivered it in less than a week... great
more bumper dings (:

1, 2 - Simple 4 piece modular design. Autotoys throws
in a package that includes connectors and mounting tape.
- Disconnect quick release harness to the right side reversing
- Blue wire provides the power for the reversing light. Black
wire is the ground.
- Remove the rubber plug in the bottom of the right side
taillight access space. The wiring for the 2 sensors can
then be threaded up from the bumper to the main control
- Using the supplied wire taps, connect the power to the blue
wire and the ground to the black wire.
8 - Main unit and speaker are mounted with Velcro in the generous
access space cavity making sure the volume screws are still
accessible. The decision to go for the complete concealed
installation was influenced by the high volume output of the
9b - Underside view of the mounted sensors.
9d - The 2 small sensors make for a very clean and drill-less
