Firstly Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all are recovering from last nights adventures........
Now, I've recently bought a 2005 "55" Hatchback Mondeo TDCI. MK3
I'm going to be a getting a detachable witter towbar for it, but i'm struggling to work out if i need a dedicated wiriing kit for it or not. Some sites say i do and some say i dont.
I'm not overly keen on breaking into the wiring loom just in case it does mess up the electrical system but of course price difference for a basic electric kit to a dedicated kit is huge. I'm happy to spend the extra if its needed of course and am not simply looking for the cheap way out.
From what i can see there is no dedicated socket for trailer lights in the car, only a positive terminal. However there is a connector block in the rear light cluster. See Pic below. Now am i right in thinking i can just get this kit from PF JONES Towbar Electrics For Ford Mondeo Hatchback/Saloon 2000-2007 7 Pin Wiring Kit | eBay
and simply piggy back with the connector from this?
Any one else done this in a 2005 Mondeo at all that could advise the best route to take. It doesnt have a bulb failure system, i know that much. PS, I only need a 7 pin for a trailer board.
