reversing sensors

Hi. Just had a towbar fitted to 2014 Doblo Maxi. When I engage reverse the sensors "kick off". Has anyone else had this problem and have they managed to over come it. Thanks for any help.

Re: reversing sensors

If they tied into the same power or ground point the reverse sensor unit uses, it may be setting it off.

When I installed my tow socket, I ran dedicated wires from the main power bus using fused relays (acc controlled) for both power and ground. As I didn't wanna risk shorting something out when not in use there's also a loop-back (power/ground) cut-off (think I used pin 4) so when the plug is out, power and ground are removed.

Re: reversing sensors

My observation is that the sensors might be "seeing" the tow bar as an object to be avoided. Not sure what can be done about it. I was warned of a potential for a problem when I had a tow bar fitted to a VW Sharan with parking sensors. I had to bend in the socket mount so it wouldn't be "seen".
