Question Reusing parktronic switch (or any OEM switch) for separate function

Does anyone know if it is possible to use an OEM mercedes switch to perform another function ?

for example :

I want to use the OEM parktronic switch to control another device (a non OEM parking sensor system) - in order to turn the system "off"

does this require serious tapping into the AAM system... or is this switch controlled by a specific pin out / connection ?

Any ideas?

Iíve found some switches in our cars use more of a pulse signal for some switching more than an On/Off feature. If Iím explaining that properly or not Iím not sure but it may not do what you want. You could only try.
