The first thing to do is not to guess at what wires do what. Go to the hardware store and pick up a tester that has only one test prong. They usually have a battery in them. put the tester in the connector terminals and test one at a time. These little tester require you to be somewhat grounded like leaning your arm against some metal on the car. if you can't find somewhere to ground your self, then run a small wire from the negative battery post/wire and wrap the bare wire around your finger. Turn on which ever item you want to test first. When you find the wire that is hot9lights up the tester) then plug in to one of the tow bar wires. you should avoid plugging in a ground wire. You can usually trace which one is the ground wire. Another way to trace which is the ground wire is to use a continuity tester. Put on tester lead on the frame of the tow bar and the other lead on a tow bar connector wire and you should get a light on the tester when you find the one that is the ground wire and then mark that connector wire so you don't connect any of your hot wires to it.
Hope this helps

I have all relevant diagrams and wires for my tow bar but dont know where to connect wires or what wires too connect my towbar wires too, can any1 help me. its an almera


Hi There it may be easier to trace the required wire from each light cluster and splice in the towbar electrics rather than follow a hand book wiring diagram ie; pin 1 Yellow L/H direction indicator. go to left hand cluster and locate left hand indicator wire, stip back the tape binding enough so that you have enough to play with and then splice in the Yellow towbar wire and continue onto the next wire on the list. Good luck

Tow bar trailer socket wiring connection point to car wiring?


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.
