Mk3 Towbar wiring
« on: September 24, 2017, 07:38:10 PM »
Hi

I have just mechanically fitted a towbar to my Mk3 Galaxy. But I'm not sure of the best entry point to pick up the electrics

What is the best route into the car ?
Do I wire to the offside or nearside rear light panel ?

Here is a link to the can/relay module which I have bought
Link :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-PCT-Automotive-ZR2500-Logicon-Towing-Interface-7-Way-Bypass-Relay-Kit/290700395850?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Any help Greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dave

I don't think you can simply connect into the existing electrics.  That will bring up CANBUS errors.  You will need a connecting kit of some description.

Hi

Also purchased the canbus relay at the same time but do you wire to the near side or the offside panel ?

1, Connect into main harness from the lights etc and bridge over from one of the panels

Here is the canbus relay that I purchased

thanks Dave
