      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

Not possible without more parts, parking sensors needs a new parking ECU and extra wiring added. Climate display on screen means you need a new climate control fascia. Neither are worth the expense IMHO.

Rear-view cameras are especially useful in tight parking lots, dark areas or in places where children might be running around. You can install as many of these cameras as you want, though one or two is usually enough.

Disconnect the battery cables from the battery. Check the vehicle's repair manual to find out what size wrench to use. Leave the disconnected cables a safe distance from the battery posts.

Decide where you want to install the [url="http://www.espow.com/wholesale-car-electronics-car-review-systems-rear-view-cameras.html"]rear view camera[/url]. Most people put them in the plastic bumper so they don't have to drill into the car's sheet metal.

Drill a hole for the camera. Check the installation instructions to see what size drill bit to use. Don't make the hole too large or the camera will fall out.

Place the camera in the hole using the rubber grommet supplied with the camera. Make sure the camera and grommet are tight.

Attach the camera's power wire to the backup-light power wire on your car. You'll have to splice the wires together. Use wire cutters to cut the wires, leaving enough excess wire to reconnect. Strip the ends of the wire to expose the bare wire using wire strippers. Splice the wires together using a two-into-one connector. This will give the rear-view camera power when you put the car in reverse.

Route the camera's output wire to the rear-view monitor and connect the wire to the monitor's input. For installation of the monitor, see the monitor's installation instructions.

Reconnect the battery, start the car and put the car in reverse. The [b]rear view monitor[/b] should turn on and give you a view of what's behind you.
