Exclamation Reverse parking Sensors with Speed Display

Hi all

I have installed RD Overseas Parking Sensor with Cruise Monitor in my Ford Figo
For reference it is the first one listed on this page:
Automobile Accessories, Car Accessories India, RD, RD brand car accessories, Nano Car, Maruti Car, Mahindra Car, Honda Car, GM Car, Alto Car, Skoda Car, Tata Car, Hyundai Car, Toyota, Reverse Parking Sensors, Power Windows, Auto Window Closers, Car C

This system has a wire that needs to be connected to the speedometer of the car, this will enable it to show the speed of the car (when going forwards) in digital format on an HUD.

Whilst everything else on the speed sensor kit works well, I have had no luck with tracing the wire to which i need to connect to show the speed.

Even the local Ford service centres have been unable to point me in the right direction

Has someone from our team successfully done this?

Any inputs highly appreciated

Thanks in advance

Thank you paras

But I wish it was as simple......

The ford dealers locally dont want to help since it means cutting into some of the cars wiring.

This in turn means - Warranty issues.

Hence they dont want to say anything that might put them into trouble.

Have not had much luck on finding the wiring diagram as well.

I have asked my friend in the UK to get me the 'Haynes Manual for Ford Fiesta V'

But there is atleast a 2~3 month wait till he comes back to India.

This one is tricky, one option: see if you can locate the sensor at gearbox end. If its electronic then tapping would be easy.
