URGENT HELP NEEDED!!
has anyone fitted a tow bar to their Mini? I have a pre 11/06 Mini One which i have fitted a tow bar to.
I am having trouble with the electrics i have installed.
I have wired in a SMART Can bus 7 way bypass relay unit (from Brocott) which seems to click at the right times, ie when the indicators are flashing but i have no trailer lights working. When i put the sidelights on i am getting 14 volts on all the terminals, with the connector in, and nothing with the connector out.
Do I even need this box and can i just piggy back the socket from my rear lights so the trailer lights just run off the cars lights or is this box necessary?
Also I have connected the negative to the box from the -ve battery terminal. Should it go to the chassis instead?
any help on this would be appreciated!
