    Default Another towing question

    Hello all. Im just about to wire in my12 s socket and im not sure exactly what goes where. In the car i had a relay with a wire that connects to the trailer wiring socket (red), a wire that plugs into fuse 28(red) they plug into a relay and then the relay has a earth and a yellow wire. I have got this diagram but unsure which wire goes where. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    If you are using a 'proper' relay then the wiring should be marked on the relay itself. I've got one which I'm not using so will dig out the wiring 2moz for you.

    Thanks. I think its the proper relay as it connects to the towbar plug that plugs into the rec. The previous owner cut the wiring so i havent a clue where it goes. I think one is permenant live and the other is live when the cars on. Thanks

    If it plugs into the REC then I had the same problem, previous owner removed towbar and simply chopped the cables (after removing F25). I found that luckily the supplied Vx cabling is the same colours as the standard 12S/12N wiring so I got some inline crimp connectors and connected them back colour for colour. Make sense?
