  1. Help! I have fitted and wired a towbar to my 56 focus. It was working fine but now the right indicator on the trailer does not work and the audible sensor doesnt work either. It works fine on the left though. Also, if I put the lights on, the left indicator beeps and flashes more quickly. I was advised by the supplier of the towbar that I would not need a relay and so did not fit one. Are these problems caused by not having the relay, and if so what type of relay should I get and where from? Any help gratefully received! Richard

    Went on trip recently with trailer. Left indicator works fine and audible sensor works fine but not on right indicator - it does not flash on trailer but does on car and no audible sensor noise. Also when I put on headlights with left indicator, it flashes and bleeps much faster. Ia Was advised by towbar company no need to fit by pass relay so didn't. is this the cause and do I now need to fit one, or could it be a bad earth? The right indicator did work initially.

    Lenny, you're a legend! One final question - in order to connect to light loom on off side is there a certain ampage wire I need to use. One chap said he used speaker wire? Your car looks amazing! Just looked at all the pictures. Richard

    thanks Lenny. Has been a while but will try and get mole grips on thread and do up nut. As far as towbar electrics go, does anyone out there know if I can connect all wires on left hand side inside boot (behind trim panel)? One chap says you have to run a wire across to other side of boot for righ hand indicator, and stop and tail light. Richard
