Hi all,

 

Hope someone can be of assistance. I am in the process of removing my current 4 Motion exhaust cutout valence and replacing with a non exhaust rear valence which has the PDC sensors (i believe these were a factory optional extra)

 

My part list:

  • Rear valance with the holes ready,
  • The sensor brackets are already molded in as its an original rear valance
  • 4 x original sensors
  • Original Sensor loom to PDC controller
  • PDC controller
  • Buzzer
  • Original cut loom for PDC controller to Buzzer and then 4 separate wires

Before i go and purchase a kufatec loom, i wanted to make use of the original cut loom but unsure which wire goes where.

 

The Original cut 16 pin brown connector loom has the following wiring colour:

  • Purple wire with brown line
  • Purple wire with red line - These 2 wires are for the buzzer
  • Brown wire ?
  • Black wire with Blue line ?
  • Grey wire with White line ?
  • Black wire with Blue line with yellow spots ?

I'm assuming the brown wire is earth, and grey and white wire is reverse, which will leave 1 of the wires to be K line and the other to be power

 

Based on the Kufatec picture, the loom has 6 wires, 2 for the buzzer and 4 that needs connecting. Kufatecs colour coding is different to the original loom.

 

Some assistance will be highly appreciated!

Dude Kufatec will come with an instruction manual, oem wire won't and you'll be looking around for the right cable colours... and once you've gone for the kufatec loom you'll find that the wires are numbered.. long story short they are high quality aftermarket looms that are fit and forget, all you need to do is follow the instructions.

Luckily someone on eBay has kindly given me information on how this is wired without the need of purchasing a new kufatec loom, and this may help others moving forward should they want to retrofit this kit

 

Brown wire - ground 

Black wire with blue line - connects the fuse 5 in the fuse box can extend the wire, the wire at fuse 5 is black/blue.
You could also attach to the 75X bolt under the fuse box but would need to add an inline fuse of 7.5 Amps.

Grey wire with white line - K line - is for diagnostics and to adjust buzzer volume, this is connected to pin 7 of the diagnostics connector

Black wire blue line with yellows spots - connects to the rear light cluster wiring plug black/blue wire

 

Will have it wired up in few weeks time and see how it all plans out and will give an update on here for clarity

Well i didn't realise you already had a loom from how you were saying it you didn't have a loom yet you were just trying to figure out what would be the best solution... no problem, might I suggest you make a how2 with loads of pictures and post it up, this will help everyone in the long run so they don't have to look for a manual, plus you can highlight the parts that aren't obvious, like access to wires, where to route the new loom etc ;)
