Front Sensor Operation and Early Detection:
PD1 Front parking sensor provides your car with full front bumper protection when parking, alerting you to approaching objects via an audible speaker.
Activate the PD1 Front parking sensor by pressing the included push-button switch that mounts discretely in the area under your steering wheel for easy access. When activated the parking sensor system provides an instant, automatic, self-diagnostic function that maps out the surrounding area of your front bumper constantly monitoring this as you manoeuvre with 100% accuracy, providing you with different audible tones (Zones) alerting you of your proximity in relation to surrounding objects!
The full length of your bumper (including the sides) is protected with an ever increasing beeping sound.
As you move forwards, Zone 1 (furthest away from your vehicle) detects the approaching object first.
Zone 1: 70 cm to 20 cm in length - The 1st tone signals with a "be-be-be" sound increasing in frequency as you approach the obstacle
Zone 2: From 15 to 20 cm away from the obstacle - The 2nd tone is a low frequency "beeeeep" sound
*The PD1 Front is acutely sensitive and enables you to park in very tight spaces.
Here is what you will get if you order the Parking Dynamics PD1 Front & Rear Pack today!
A. The Speaker is small and at just 20mm in diameter mounts anywhere inside of the vehicle and can be run to any location.

Installation & Compatibility
Installing the PD1 Parking Sensor on cars & vehicles with a plastic bumper!
The Universal Parking Dynamics PD1 is compatible with any Car, Vehicle, Van, 4x4, MPV, SUV and Motor home that has a plastic bumper and as 99.9% of cars and vehicles have plastic bumpers, you have no need to be concerned, even if your bumper appears part metal the PD1 will work. If you are in any doubt please contact us.
The PD1 antenna is easy to fit and requires no bumper adjustments or holes ensuring a damage free installation. The antenna is cost effective to replace should you wish to move the sensor to a new car in the future or simply require a replacement.
Mounting the Electronic Control Unit (ECU):
The Rear ECU can be installed in various locations such as inside of the boot behind the trim or inside your rear bumper with the included adhesive mount. The Front ECU can be installed inside of the engine bay or behind the glove box, dashboard or trim with the included adhesive mount.
Mounting the Speaker:
Mount the parking sensor speaker using the included adhesive mount. The volume is loud enough to provide a good warning even if mounted behind your vehicles interior trim. This connects to the ECU by push fit connection. Can be extended up to 15M and will mount in any location.
Mounting the Antenna:
Mount the adhesive metallic parking sensor antenna onto the inner side of the front and/or rear bumper (depending upon which sensor option you choose) making sure the bumper surface is clean before attaching.
Ensure the terminal connector is on the side where you have located the ECU. When the antenna has been attached, covering the whole of the bumper from left to right (leaving approx 15cm from the edges); the excess length is cut off. Place a piece of the included adhesive material or tape at either end of the antenna to ensure a secure installation onto the bumper. Cover full length with gaffa/gaffer/duct/duck tape for optimum protection from the elements.
It is important that the antenna is installed at the highest part from the ground that corresponds to the furthest distance from the vehicle body as a precaution to prevent any interference from nearby metal parts. The recommended position of the parking sensor antenna is at least 40cm from ground level, with 50cm being optimum.
Once the bumper is removed, if your vehicle has a metal crash protection bar and the antenna will be within 3 cm's of this metal bar (once the bumper is re-fitted) you can install a 2nd Antenna to prevent any reduction in detection range or insulate the metal crash bar. This is only required on a small number of vehicles but the option is available if required. Read these 2 technical documents to learn more. Boosting Detection Range and Insulating Metal Crash Bar.
PD1 Front Parking Sensor:
1) Black wire MUST be connected to the ground (body / chassis) of the vehicle.
2) Red wire is connected in line with the switch and the 12V ignition wire. Live only when ignition is active.
3) Connect the antenna connection wire from the ECU to the antenna.
DIY Installation & Bumper Removal
99.9% of car & vehicle bumpers are made of plastic making the PD1 fully compatible. Installing the Parking Dynamics PD1 car parking and reverse sensor is simple, safe and secure. Depending on your car or vehicle, the bumper may have to be removed. On some cars just loosening the bumper by releasing the locator screws will enable access for installation. If you choose a professional installation most auto electricians, car audio and security installers, mechanics and body shop technicians will remove the bumper literally in minutes.
Removal of the bumper is not as difficult as it at first may seem and is typically held on with 2-4 main bolts and screws and some locators. In a few cases rivets are used that need to be popped out and simply replaced from your dealer parts department (at a minimal cost) when re-fitting.
If required your dealer's parts department can provide an exploded view (print off) of your front and rear bumper assembly and this will show you exactly how the bumper is fixed to your car or vehicle and where any screws, locators or rivets can be found. Alternatively a Haynes Manual will detail this information.
PD1 is 100% Compatible
PD1 Electromagnetic Technology or Ultrasonic Sensors?
Totally unique in design, the PD1 parking and reverse sensors are a superior alternative to the older ultrasonic type sensor technology that requires you to drill 4 or 6 holes in your bumper, mounting ugly black sensors that then need painting to colour code and match the shade of your bumper... The Parking Dynamics PD1 makes this a thing of the past!
The PD1 antenna has a minimum price to replace and gives you optimum flexibility as it fits bumpers of all shapes and sizes and can run over or around uneven bumper surfaces.
New CAN Bus Systems:
Many new cars and vehicles now come with the CAN Bus multiplex wiring system fitted. The PD1 is fully CAN Bus compatible and requires no adjustment or extra accessories when installing. Beware of ultrasonic systems that require extra wiring and relay components in order to fully integrate with CAN Bus systems. Connect the wrong aftermarket parking sensor and it could be costly. The PD1 eliminates this problem!
Vehicles Fitted with a Tow Bar:
Parking Dynamics PD1 is the recommended Parking and Reverse Sensor for vehicles with a Tow bar fitted as performance is not affected. It's the only Parking Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a tow bar fitted.
Vehicles with Spare Wheel on Rear Door:
The Parking Dynamics PD1 will continue to operate effectively when fitted to vehicles with a Spare Wheel fixed on the rear door such as 4x4, MPV or SUV's. It's the only Parking and Reverse Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a spare wheel fixed to rear door.
Vehicles with a Metal Bumper:
The Parking Dynamics PD1 Front, Rear and Vision Parking and Reverse Sensors are not compatible with metal bumpers straight out of the box. However with a few insulating adjustments to your metal bumper, the PD1 will be fully compatible. See the Metal Bumper Installation Technical Document to learn more.
Operation in Heavy Rain conditions:
When heavy rain is present the PD1 parking sensor system automatically reduces its sensitivity in order to eliminate false alarms that can be given by the movement of water on the bumper. False signals in heavy rain conditions are highly affected by specific designs of vehicles and their bumpers. Some bumper designs have a higher chance of false alarms in heavy rain conditions.
False signals are given as a result of water flowing between the car body and the bumper. Parking Dynamics have reduced this as much as possible with good results within the PD1 software for optimum usage.
However once the software does recognise that water is present during a reversing manoeurve the first and second zones are eliminated to prevent continuous false signals and the next alert zones are utilised until the system is reset and water eliminated.
This is intelligent in itself and surpasses ultrasonics in such scenarios ensuring a safe and secure parking and reversing manoeuvre.
