Mk7 trailer wiring kit for use with parking sensors

Postby Airthies » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:20 pm

Looking at fitting a genuine trailer kit since this mk7 has parking sensors.
What's available? Does anyone have the wiring harness laying around?
Or a good source other than Ford?

You can get the 7 pin dedicated kit fairly cheap, i got the 13 pin kit for red then turned on in ids and then fed it through etc.
Pf jones give you the full kit with fitting kit and instructions which actually was handy because the kit doesn't look that straight forward which is actually quite hard for us engineering types to get our heads around :x

Custom plugs in under the passenger plastic foot tray step.

Mk7 either the 2 passenger inner chassis leg at the front or there's a connector near the back I think?

But someone who's fitted the mk7 1 will be able to correct me in sure.

I fitted the 7 way bypass relay to snowflake, 10 quid or so :lol: cheap at twice that 8)

Yea fitted a bypass relay to the big Guinea pig before symple an cheep, but was thinking if I'm going this far might as well do it properly to work with the parking sensors

Trailer tow module which is probably can bus.

Tbh my 13 pin kit was 2 boxes and weighed a fair bit, a lot of wiring and connectors, 130 quid though. Done once and done right, I normally think like you but in this case I just paid the ferryman. :wink:
