Tow Bar Wiring Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi guys have recently bought a 2016, 65 Plate Grand C-Max. Only owned the car 3 days and totally love it. Obviously due to it being a 2016 my car no longer has the manufactures warranty.

Now I need some advice. Very shortly I will be getting a tow bar fitted with single electrics. I'm unsure as to which wiring loom to go for ie dedicated or universal. I'm opting for the fixed swan neck type as my car has rear parking sensors. If the sensors pick the tow bar up I can easily remove the tow ball until I need to use it.

I am a bit hesitant about getting the dedicated wiring loom due to cost, but I have seen the dedicated wiring loom on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Or do you think I would be ok using a universal wiring loom.

I've done both previously - the dedicated kit is so much easier!

I've also done both...would now spend the extra on the dedicated loom every time myself!

I would go for the dedicated loom, it knows when you have a trailer plugged in and cancels the reverse sensors.

What engine is the grand c- max, if 1.0 ecoboost you need a charge air cooler fan fitting .

That's ok then . As others have said , get a dedicated loom and module. The eBay link you posted is just for the wiring and not the module.
