  1. Not worked with Avensis Verso much. Feed for reverse lamps are usually on passenger side (nearside) and either pink or plain red. I always connect parking sensors feed/earth wires as close to the bulb holder as i can. Does the Verso only have the reverse light on the one side too? If you are looking for a wire on the drivers side and it doesnt have a reverse lamp you will never find it. :) Mart. There are two reverse lights each side of the tailgate, so feed goes through the rubber tube connector at top of tailgate then down each side of the rear window. If I connect close to the bulb, I have to run a new cable up the side side columns of the tailgate, through the rubbrt connector then down the rear nearside pillar to the jack cubbyhole, quite a task. The wiring loom I found is in the jcubbyhole on nearside of vehicle and have some 20-30 cables. there are no pink or red, they all seem to be combinations of green, white and black, and some have silver dots on. ________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________ Hi Mart, Problem solved thanks to you, your hint about the red wire gave it to me, went back to the rubber flexable going into top of tailgate, and with much streaching and pulling, found there was a red wire in the bunch, so took a chance and tapped into it and hey presto it was right. Thanks again Mart for your help, without that hint I would still be floundering. Great user site to get this amount of help for a newby

  4. Hi all, Just joined user club and am pleased to see discussion on reverse sensors, this is where I have a problem. Fitting reverse sensors to my Avensis Verso and decided best place for display was in rear of car hanging from boot light in toof. thought his would save running cables the length of car and you should be looking over your shoulder when reversing. Display fitted OK with cable running under roof lining and down inside rear pillar to cubbyhole where jack is stored, (ideal place to put sensor conrtol box. Sensors fitted OK to bumper and cables run through sealed hole to same cubbyhole. Thought I was doing well, but then came my problem, connecting to reverse light power supply. I opened the rear of the reverse light to identify the correct cable by the colour, the live feed is yellow/red, great find the same wire in the loom in the the back of the car and link in. NO GO - There is a wiring loom plug/socket situated in the jack cubbyhole but no yellow/red wire. So I checked the wires where they enter the boot lid through the rubber flexable at the top of the door, there's no yellow/red cable there either. So that's my problem, how do I identify the reverse live feed in the wiring loom situated in the jack cubbyhole on an Avensis Verso, any help on this will be greatly appreciated as I have been loosing my sanity trying to figure it. Thanks in advance DavidF
