Default FG Reverse Sensors / Cameras

Hi there,
Just want to know what my options are for a car I have just purchased. It is a 2010 FG XR50 and I'd like to fit the rear sensors and maybe the camera as well. I called in to my local Ford dealer this afternoon and the parts guy said that these kits are no longer available and I'd have to go after market.

The previous owner has also fitted a Hayman Reece towbar to this car but it doesn't seem to have a plug wired up. There is one available through ebay at the moment which is a plug in loom with the square type connector - one is suitable for rear sensors, should I get that one??

I'd prefer to keep this one all OEM if possible, I know my way around the earlier models but must admit that I know not much on the newer ones. Just after some advice.

Also, my EF XR6 wagon has the upgraded alarm and I am wondering if there was a similar upgrade available for FG??

Thank you

Paul B.

OK. Check with ASL to see what they have for the reverse camera kits although you could just buy the individual component is the kit isn't available any more as it's really only a wiring loom, the camera and mount, the sensors (if you decide to have those as well) and then someone to program the system using IDS once it is all installed.

There is an alarm module available for the FPV's that can be dealer fitted and which includes a raft of additional sensors.

Cheers
Russ

Thankyou Russell, just a couple of little enhancements I would like to have eventually.
