Similar problem for me. Anyone near Biggleswade, Bedfordshire who can wire up a tow bar for me?

P.S. If i did try to do it myself.... where do you actually connect the tow bar wires to the van wiring? All done behind one light, or somewhere in the middle? I just didn't think you would find all wires in one side, for example if you wired into back of near side rear lights, surely there would be no live feed for off side lights over there?
Mine is a 1997 Tourneo, struggling a bit as you might have guessed :D (I have done this once before, years ago, mind gone blank :D)

Normally connect behind near side light, and then run two wires to off side for side light and indicator on that side

In volume?
The easiest way is to extend the wiring and move the buzzer closer to the front of the van.

Orange/yellow - Left indicator (yellow from towbar socket or orange if you are fitting the buzzer)
Orange/Blue - Right indicator (green or grey from socket or buzzer)
Orange - N/S Side light (black from socket)
Orange/Black - O/S Side light (brown from socket)
Orange - Stop lamps (red fro.........)
Green/Black - Reverse lamps (yellow only if you are fitting 2 sockets)
Green/Yellow - Rear Fog lamps (blue from socket)

to determine the stop & side as they are both orange, The side is the orange wire next to the orange/yellow for the indicator.


Thank you, been struggling as I hate electrickery!
