About Parking Sensor Kits

The Vauxhall parking sensor kit provides you with all the necessary components to fit parking sensors on your vehicle and is designed specifically for the make and model of your vehicle. The Vauxhall parking sensor kit is a handy device that can go a long way to preserving the bodywork of your vehicle by helping you to avoid collisions while parking.

A parking sensor is essentially a proximity sensor which can sense when an object is close. This clever sensor helps you to park your car by measuring distance from nearby objects, such as a wall or another car, indicating when you are getting close to the object by emitting a beeping or buzzing noise. With most parking sensors, the closer the car gets to the object, the more fast paced the beeping becomes, designed to alert the driver to the nearing proximity of the object and the impending collision. Parking sensors are particularly useful when trying to squeeze into a small parking space with little room to manoeuvre and can help you to avoid damaging your car or someone else's car or property.

Parking sensors can be either ultrasonic or electromagnetic sensors, and are placed at both the front and rear of the vehicle, usually housed in the corner end of each bumper. The parking sensors work in conjunction with a control unit which will be located in the car, usually on the dashboard. When the parking sensors detect an object within close proximity, a message is sent to the control unit which activates the beeping alert. Some parking sensor kits provide digital readouts on a screen which tell the driver the distance of the object from the car and some are fitted with a camera. There are a whole range of parking sensor kits on the market. It's worth investing in the Vauxhall parking sensor kit to ensure compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle.

Generally proximity sensors are very accurate and dependable and usually have a long working life. Problems can occur with the parking sensors, however, and indication that there's a fault can come in the absence of a beep or a change in the usual pattern of the beep when parking the vehicle. The sensors can get blocked and if there are problems such as water seeping into the wiring loom, this can cause the sensors to malfunction. Getting advice from a professional to establish the fault is always a good idea. When you need to replace the parking sensors on your vehicle or are looking to fit parking sensors for the first time, choosing the Vauxhall parking sensor kit will guarantee complete compatibility with the make and model of your car.

Vauxhall trivia

  • Alexander Wilson founded Vauxhall back in 1857 as a pump and marine engine manufacturer. It then moved onto building cranes before starting to finally make cars in 1903.
  • Vauxhall's first-ever car had a whopping five-horsepower and didn't have a steering wheel! Instead, it used a tiller for guiding direction, along with two forward gears. Who even needs a reverse gear?
  • The Vectra C is a very popular car, especially among the police force, and it's now common to see car buyers desperate to pick up an ex-police Vectra for cheap. It is estimated that Vauxhall manufactures as much as 70% of the UK police forces cars.
  • Vauxhall has been manufacturing cars continuously in Britain since 1903, making it the oldest car brand to survive in the UK.
  • The Vauxhall Vectra was the last car they ever produced in Luton, and it went on to become one of their most poorly reviewed vehicles. Top Gear even put the '95 Vectra on their list of the worst cars of the last 20 years (Clarkson wouldn't even drive it!).
