    Hi
    Just thinking of adding a reverse parking sensors to my car.
    I have found the following on ebay : No Holes In Bumper Electromagnetic Parking Sensors - UK Designed & Engineered | eBay
    But it says it is no good with cars with a CAM BUS system which i believe, the New accord has.
    Can you confirm that this is correct as this one needs no drilling etc and would be unnoticeable.
    Can you also tell me if the other cheap one will also work that you have to put the sensors into the bumpers.
    Many thanks again in advance.

    I don't think it says you can't use it on cars with CAN BUS. I think it's just saying that it's not CAN BUS aware itself.

    As long as you don't try and connect it to the CAN BUS I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

    How much does a genuine Honda parking sensor system cost to fix any ideas ?

    As far as I know, the Accord is not CANBUS.

    Also, for £199 deal that is mentioned above, I'd rather that than an ebay jobbie. For a start it will be genuine and will have better durability as well.
