Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

Good evening good people. 
I have a bit of a strange problem with the towbar wiring on my 68 plate st line edge. 
I had a genuine Ford towbar wiring kit and module fitted and activated by Ford. All seams to work fine. It’s a 13 pin plug. 
I have a 7 pin adaptor in it as my trailers are all 7 pin. 
the problem is as soon as I plug it in the boot opens? 
Also it doesn’t mute the rear parking sensors when I’m in reverse? 

Anybody any ideas??

Think I could be the adaptor? 
 

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure your not just activating the lower hands free opening as your down there (or the harness is waving in front of the sensor!)

ECU's are not configured. There are 2 or 3 other ECU's that need configuring to let them know a trailer ECU is installed. That inhibits the reverse sensors, rear fog lights, lamp out and enables trailer stability control as part of your dynamic stability system ... amongst other things! When things are 'activated' correctly, you should get a 'Trailer Connected' message in the instrument cluster when you turn on the ignition and if you put the car in reverese, you'll get a car + trailer symbol in the top right of the reverse camera view plus the reverse sensor off light on the parking aid centre console switch next to the gear lever.

 

See this thread for typical tow bar questions and images of what youshould see when its configured correctly ...

Will get it back upto ford and see if they can have another go at sorting it.

Took my local Ford dealer 3 attempts (the last time they came out to me for the inconvenience) before they finally got it right!
