Question about 2006 Subaru Forester
I wish to connect a towbar-trailer socket outlet mounted on the vehicles towbar to the existing car wiring.I was supplied with a loose wiring harness/loom,(not connected)with the towbar, which was fitted by the car dealer when I purchased the vehicle.The wiring harness/loom has a click-fit plastic connector on one end (which I assume is to be click-fitted into a special socket outlet) connected to the appropriate wiring with-in the vehicles main wiring harness) provided adjacent to the towbar location and it has seven(no.) colour coded loose wires unconnected at the other end which I assume were left to be connected to a standard(7) pin socket outlet mounted on the tow-bar. Can you advise me where the special socket outlet (to plug the supplied harness/loom into)is located or failing that,can you give me a wiring diagram which shows where I can connect the loose wiring harness/loom into the existing wiring. That was a mouthfull wasn't it,I hope you can help me! Thank you.
The connectors for towing wire harnesses on foresters are generally on the passenger side, below the rear taillight inside the cargo space. some require pulling up the foam block that is between the spare tire compartment and the taillight. Check where you replace the tailights from inside the car, if there isn't a matching connector hanging out there, check around the spare tire compartment, see if you can remove the carpeted foam block next to the compartment and find the plug under there.

No standard color codes. all you need is park light, signal left and right, brake light. easiest way is to connect the wires in the tail lights. hope this helps
