Need to fit a VS tow bar to a VX

of course it can with a bit of welding and cutting ,but the official answer is no as it can only be used on the vehicle it was designed for so this new vehicle must be taken to a authorised tow bar fitting workshop and have the correct towing hitch fitted which conforms to europeon regulations ,then once its fitted the relavent paperowrk purporting to the towbar plus the tax paid reciept from the garage taken to the nearest vehicle test station and duely tested as part of a complete new yearly inspection then the paperwork is changed to show the towing bar and new certificate of inspection .Failure tom comply will render the owner liable to a big fine

We have bought a 2010 mercedes E class with a factory fitted fold away tow bar. We have now been told that the only electrics we can get is a single electrics only good enough to tow a trailer. We bought...

I assume its a new W212 E-Class ? Do you need a 7 pin or 13 pin socket. Either way adapters are available from MB and these have to be programmed at the dealer so the CAN system identify's what the new accessory is.
I would check with a different dealer if you are not getting anywhere, or a reputable tow bar fitter.

My dashboard and gauges keep flickering on and off

sound like you have a lose connection it could be the cables on to the dash or the socket it fits to. you would need to remove the dash and clean the connection and re fit it. if you push on the dash does it stop. ? just check this first as some times its just a tiny amount of play in the connections that's the problem .

Open the power distribution center box near the battery and remove the asd relay that should shut it down. as for the problem itself, it could be a bad relay, a bad ignition switch or some odd ball thing that needs testing to find.
Good luck!

The on car computer tells me I have a stoplight out when I indicate and when I brake it says that the indicator is fulty. all bulbs have been changed to no avail.Car is a 407 but did not have that option.

any other electrical faults? any aftermarket electrical equipment been fitted about the same time as the light problems?(phone chargers, Sat nav',  etc.-remove temporarily to make sure they are not interfering with operation of electrics) are you sure all the bulbs fitted are the correct type - a twin filament bulb fitted where a single should be perhaps? maybe remove any bulbs fitted recently and see what happens. poor battery condition/low voltage/dirty connections at battery or earth wires can cause electrical problems like this. give more details of vehicle - year, model, spec etc. and say if problem is intermittent or every time you use the brake +/or the indicator. if you have a tow bar and trailer light socket fitted to it water entry into the socket could be the problem.
