Question about 2005 Volvo V50
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.
