It works! Even when I pull in car in garage it tells me when to stop.

I sensor was the only wire you have to under the hood to the fire wall! Everything else went under the dash? It has stick on tape, so no drilling to mount system! Thank You for saving my front spoiler ...

Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out a nice little gadget that’s sure to save a few lower chin spoilers, front air dams and even front bumpers thanks to this parking assist sensor for all model Mustangs. We’ve all been there, pulling into a new place or parking lot only to not notice those evil little concrete parking blocks resulting in a not so nice scratch on that front end. Well with this kit those incidents become a thing of the past. The sensor mounts on the front bumper or like we do with our 2011 GT here, under the front bumper, and by using advanced infrared technology it audibly warns you when your front chin spoiler is getting a little too close for comfort. Well, we can talk about this all day but the only way to get a true sense of how this product actually works is to put it to the test. Hey guys were out here in the parking lot of AmericanMuscle headquarters putting our parking assist sensor to the test to see if it works. *Beep* *Beep* *Beep*, Alright you aren’t missing that another spoiler saved thanks to this kit. The kit includes an infrared sensor itself and waterproof housing, an alarm, and also a control box. The install is made very straight forward thanks to the detailed instructions and thanks to the fact that there is no drilling required for this kit what-so-ever, all you have to do is run a few wires and find a place to locate the sensor after that its basic power and ground installation that should take you no longer than an hour, when you factor in time to calibrate the kit. Calibrating your new kit is very easy, all you need is a cardboard box that your kit came in to be placed in front of your vehicle at the desired location you would like the alarm to sound, once you have done that simply adjust your sensor while holding the button on the calibration box until you start to hear the beep, once you have that done you are all set and ready to go. So if you’ve been on the losing end of some of those parking lot battles and you’re tired of scraping up your ride you’ll definitely enjoy the extra protection from this parking assist sensor.

Would these work for the rear end as well?

JonLucas

  • Hi Jonlucas, Yes it would work. The thing to remember is are you pulling up to curbs etc ... like the front end? I thought about the same safty aspects but then realized that the corners are potentially the most nicked up for me in the rear I then found multi sensor kits to cover the corners, for me the $ was a little hard to swallow. I then realized a camera was the way to go for me. You'll need to examine your needs & go the rout that serves you best. Hope this helps. H.T.

Wall detection? I'm wondering if this sensor would only detect curbs, or would it also detect walls just fine? I was planning to use it for reverse parking since it was mentioned that it would also work on the back end.

How do i stop false alarms ? sometimes driving down a flat road or highway It will go off for like 3 seconds , and a few seconds later it will do it again , it usually does it 3 or 4 times then it will stop ... and it will do it sporadically ... please help it is getting obnoxious ... thank you

Bigdog7

  • I have the same problem, it beeps with ghosts present or no object even nearby. Sensor requires retraining!!! 1] Place the front of your car, where the distance of the object (such as a garage door) is measured in inches (example 18") from the Sensor. 2] Disconnect the power from the unit for at least 3 minutes and then return power to it. 3] Drive Test its ability to be smart again VERY SLOWLY until it sounds. Remeasure. 4] Repeat if necessary.

    An ounce of prevention

    This item is priceless! Ever pulled your custom ride into a gas station and kissed the curb? I have and its ruined my entire week. Well no more! The curb alert is way cheaper than a Cervinis Front bumper!This item is very easy to install and instantly alerts you at the preset measurement when youre getting too close for comfort. My stang thanks me for it every day! Highly recommended! Protect yourself before it's too late!!

    Great peace of mind

    Installed this a few weeks ago and it's a great system. I only ran the speaker in the cab of the car and hooked the module up to the battery and mounted the module next to the fuse box under the hood of our '12 GT. I ran the speaker with across the firewall and into the foil rap around the sound tube area. Doing it this way was really easy. To hide the speaker wire I in cased it with 1/8th wire loom so you don't even know its there. One word of caution. Our car is not used in the winter and the battery is on a battery maintainer all the time. If you have your car on one of these maintainers you'll want to put Mini switch on the curb alert ground with and turn it off when attaching the maintainer because the curb alert will not turn it's self off hooked up to the maintainer because it still sees battery voltage. Love this curb alert!

    front end sensor works great

    install took 30 mins easy to do. came with everything you need . so far everything working the way it should. you do have to clean the sensor if it gets to dirty. so far on reg roads in the rain it has worked fine. would work better if it had 2 front sensors for off center parking curbs. will not pick up curb if it is not dead in front of the sensor.

    Needed a little help to calibrate

    Don't know what I missed in the calibration directions, but I had to contact Curb Alert for help. Thankfully, Bill got right back to me. His instructions (below) were all the help I needed. The sensor has to be aimed at an object to calibrate the distance alert. Suggest you place a larger box in front of the sensor and then press the red calibration button (I did this with the car running). You should then hear two beeps or a constant tone (but the sensor has to be aimed at an object to reflect the signal). You have just calibrated the distance. (now I turn off the car). Then allow the car to sit for 10 minutes with the engine off. (now I turn on the car again). Then adjust the sensor angle until you hear the distance alert when you slide the box forward toward the front of the car into your set alert distance. These notes (plus my comments) worked perfectly. Thank you Bill!! My install was a 2011 GT. The mount was below the license plate toward the back. The path through the firewall is along-side the sound tube. I used the spare connector in the center console (referred to as the convertible plug) and I plugged into the white wire with the blue line (which is on when the engine is running). Thanks again Bill!

    An Alert for Dummies

    The bottom of my front fascia looks like I drove the car in a trash collection facility. Very form of minor damage can be seen; so I decided to purchase the Curb Alert and install it prior to having the car's fascia finish restored. Works like a charm for Curbs but will not detect vertical sign posts probably because they are too thin. Mine is set to alert me when I am 10" from the Curb. For Dummies like me, this product will probably pay for itself.

    Great Product

    I purchased this product as soon as I purchased a new chin spoiler as I thought they would go well together. This product works great! The sensor was easy to calibrate and it beeps quite loudly when I pull near a curb (loud enough to hear over music). The only downside is that the instructions are poor quality. Also, one other thing I would change for anyone else who buys this- I would connect the sensor to an ignition-controlled power line that way the sensor turns off when you turn off the car. Otherwise the sensor will continue to beep even after the car is turned off for 20 minutes (it shuts off after that).

    A little front bumper insurance

    The curb alert was easy to install on my car. I opted to put it under the air opening, and not under the lowest part of my Roush fascia. I think if you put it under the lowest point of the bumper and did accidentally scrub while going through a dip you would break it and/or lose it. I would recommend trying to find a place that absolutely will not get hit. Adjusting the sensor was a little tricky, or so I thought. I adjusted it as recommended and I thought, "there is no way this is going to work", but it did. It always stops me before I grind the curb.

    good product

    This product works well but was a little time consuming to install on my 2006 mustang GT. You have to remove the passenger side inner fender well to access the grommet to feed the wires through. My intent was to connect to a ignition wire but ended up connecting directly to the battery after consulting with the manufacturer. Calibrating was easy. It works well now. Sometimes it will beep when going in or out of sons inclined driveways.
