You do not need a relay if you are only running it for the trailer lights and DONT cut any wires on you focus loom use what they call scotch locks

Need directions to fit towbar and wiring on holden captiva sx (2007)


there is a standard tow bar and a 2000kg for genuine tow bars
you need to remove both tail lights,the bumper bar and reinforcement bracket, spare wheel and exhaust hangars on rear mufflers, remove the tie down bracket on LHS chassis rail(dont need this or the bolts that hold it on), so you can then bolt in place either of the 2 tow bars.
genuine wiring patch harness for trailer plug is my suggestion since its plug straight into vehicle and interfaces with vehicle, goes in right hand rear compartment remove lid then remove box, interface connector for trailer harness is there.
instructions can be printed out from dealers if you ask
some new kits dont come with instructions in kits because information is on dealer computers
there is a template to print out to cut hole in bumper bar for tounge area of tow bar, uses centre square dimple in bar but its a bit wider.

you can cut them if you want just tape up the ends, but i think you should fallow them to there source some were there is a wiring splitter that you will need to hook them up on the next car. it is a small box with 5 or 6 wires going in and 4 coming out.

Need to wire tow bar into 1999 LT35


Hi ebrown80
You can splice into each wire in turn at the back of the lamps.No need to cut right through the origional loom completly. For a really good joint you should spot solder each connection and insulate all joints well. Tow bar sockets operate on a common earth, so no need to loop each one.
Check back of socket and you will find each pin has a number. 1---7
The wiring colours from the socket back to the loom are as follows
No 1 Pin--- Yellow Wire---Left Side Flasher
No 2 Pin--- Blue Wire------Fog Lamp.
No 3 Pin--- White Wire--- Earth. Must have good contact or nothing else will operate.
No 4 Pin----Green Wire--- Right Side Flasher.
No 5 Pin----Brown Wire---- Left Side Park Light
No 6 Pin----Red Wire-------Brake Lights
No 7 Pin----Black Wire----Right Side Park Light. Centre Pin.
I hope this helps you out
Best of Luck with it

Wiring tow bar electrics


Just tap off of the rear lights , You can do most of the wiring on one side and only have to tap the indicator off the other side.
shouldn't need a relay unless you have lots n lots of lights on the tailer.
Hope this helps.

Wiring in a tow bar


First I'm sure that a Festiva should probably only be towing body weight, But if you want to hook up a wiring loom for towing I would suggest buying a 4 lug loom from a auto store, then I would get a chilton or haynes manual to get the wiring diagram (or internet) then wire it up with **** connectors and electrical tape.

Ajajaj.
You have chosen the wrong car for the DIY instalation of the wiring for the towing ;)

You must buy a separate module that connects into the car's MOST and CAN networks. This way the car has full control over additional light, it can change the program for the engine etc, etc...
Do not try to connect additional lights to the existing lights because the computer will show some warnings / errors in the wiring.

Well, if you are the real DIY guy with experience, you can mount additional relay for every lamp on the trailer. But you must then get enough power from the battery + mount additional fuses. I still suggest the original parts for the safety reasons.

At the Volvo dealer you can order original towing kit. All together including work it should be about 400 to 500 eur.
