Look under the hood for a pos post for jumping in case of a bad battery. This is the most unintrusive spot your going to find. Just get a clamp and clamp on when towing. On these newer cars I don't like to hook into already used sources. The computer see's voltage changes on just about everything possible. You could set codes if you were to choose wrong. Not to mention a short in the trailer harness could damage a computer.

Interior lights stay on and drivers door won't lock


Have you tried spraying the door switches with wd40 type spray or changing the door switch , Either the switch sticks or the wiring may fray after a bit of time.causing the wire to splay out and touch the inner bodywork causing a constant live feed . If not you could simply remove the interior light fuse , so it is not a constant live feed draining your battery until you can get an auto electrical place to look at it . It could also be whaer getting into the system somewhere causing a constant feed. Check the Fuse box.

Where do i feed the wires through to wire up the towbar on a 1997 honda crv?


If you have a wired tow hitch on your car you will need to mate this to the wiring harness on the tow bar. If the two wired units do not match then you will either need an adapter or will need to rewire the tow dolly or the car. If the car doesn't have a tow light unit installed you will need to install one that will mate to the tow bar light unit.

I hope this helps - please rate me

Fitting instructions for the towbar electics on a Renault Trafic 2006


Behind the left reversing light is a grommet that you can put the towbar wire through, and just behind this is a large black connector, this has all the wires for the towbar, unfortunately there are several wires of the same colour that do different things, best use a test lamp on each one as you connect them. The indicators are "self monitoring" so you do not need a buzzer or light on the dash to tell you that the trailer is working, when you indicate with the trailer connected the ticking sound of the indicators changes to a pinging sound.
