Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Recommended Posts


I am about to purchase a towbar for my 2012 mondeo estate, purely for attaching a cycle carrier on odd occasions, no towing of trailers etc involved. 

If I go down the route of buying through somewhere like towtrust, gt towing etc (other towbar manufacturers are available....) I am told I need 7 or 13 pin electrics + a bypass relay. 

If I go via Ford, I am told I need 7 or 13 pin electrics + a 'trailer brake module'. 

This is apparently to tell the computer to adjust ESP amongst other things, when towing. 

If I am not going to be towing, is this needed?
