I see Rolls-Royce T-Shirt. I too work for same company.
Would love to see your car in office, If we are able to meet.
I bought it from Dakshin Honda, Hosur Road. Nope, I don't work for Rolls-Royce, of course I would dream to drive one :-). The T-Shirt was a gift from a relative who worked in HP on some project for Rolls-Royce.

I have started drafting my ownership report, due to very tight work schedules, not much progress is being made. Hope to start posting in a week's time.

Default Re: 2017 Honda City Facelift : A Close Look

Hello All,
I just got my 2017 SMT Honda city delivered last week. One thing I badly wanted to install is the reverse sensor. But on speaking to the Car mechanic here(Chennai) , they all spice the tail lamp wire to power these and Honda was specific that the warranty would void if I sliced the tail lamp wire. Does anyone know where we can get connectors for the tail lamp so that I can do some soldering to the new connectors and use a pair(Male - Female- Original tail lamp) so that in case there is any electrical problems later, I can just plug away the converter and directly plug back the original taillamp connectors.
I also need help on OBD adapter for Honda city 2017. The ones which I already had( worked with Chevy Beat) do not communicate with the ECU, though the Bluetooth connectivity works. guess the protocol or pinout for Japanese cars are different from American ones. Thanks in advance.

Congratulations on your car - I feel that the SMT is a terrific VFM option, and often overlooked (I considered it strongly before stretching and going for VMT).

However, coming to your question - why don't you get the reverse sensor or even camera setup done by Honda itself? I remember seeing that for 13k you can get reverse cam setup.

I would also recommend to do it through Honda dealer itself if you are concerned about the warranty. They added reverse sensors for my Jazz V MT for 3k.

The sensors were neatly integrated in the back but they added a small device in the dash to alert visually and audibly the distance which I was not informed about earlier. I thought it would be like OEM integration which it's not.

The device I have is something which doesn't need holes to be drilled in the bumpers. Its a new kind of sensor called" electromagnetic sensor" instead of the regular "infrared sensors" which use 4 sensors drilled on the bumper.
Advantage -
1. No holes, no sensors on bumper
2. Covers every corner of the bumper rather than just specific points in the infrared sensor when it comes to a close distance pole which comes in the dark zone.
Another reason for asking is that I bought a reverse camera system with dashcam and gps all in one. That one too requires a trigger signal for reverse gear. Now I have to manually click the touchscreen of that device to go to reverse mode....

If at all I knew the type of connectors used in the tail lamp, I could just buy a male and female pair and do all this stuff without voiding the warranty from Honda..... Its some kind of standard connector but I don't know which one... T8, T9, T10, T11..... These can be imported from Hongkong for cheap...

That is very sensible option if you want to preserve warranty.

Where exactly is this device set? In a friend's car it is placed above the IRVM where it doesn't intrude much. Can you post a picture of this?

Mine is placed in the left most corner of the dashboard. It's relatively small and non obtrusive but I was not okay with the Honda salesperson for not informing the same beforehand. Will post a picture tonight.

This is the device. It sticks to dashboard. Blocks a small part of the window, but not so bad.

Coming back to early question, did anyone successfully connect their OBD adapter to Honda city? Mine refuses to connect with the ECU.

This is definitely a much advanced device than a normal reverse sensor. Hope someone else here in the forum help you on your connector question. Good luck!

Can you please share the link from where this was purchased?

Thank you! You do it during a lean period say by 2-3pm when the beach is sparsely populated or there will be a lot of distractions. The sky was really moody that day and added value to the shot. Congrats and happy shooting!

I added reverse sensors from Honda dealer last week, during my first service at cost of 5500. Yes, the so called "device" is placed above IRVM and I didn't even notice it until my son spotted it .
