What is a wiring kit?
If you want to take a trip with your bike carrier, trailer, caravan, boat trailer or horsebox, it should be powered to ensure the lights are working. In addition, the towed object should also know when you are braking so the brake lights can immediately be activated if necessary. In order for these functions to work, you need a wiring kit in addition to your towbar. The wiring kit is directly connected to the electricity system of your car.
You can choose from a wiring kit with 7 pin or 13 pin socket. This has to do with the requirements of the connection. A 13 pin wiring kit provides a permanent/fride power and reverse to the towed vehicle. In general, a 7 pin wiring kit is selected if you only require light functions for the towed vehicle.
Type of wiring kit
Brink only offers vehicle-specific wiring kits. We always recommend using a vehicle-specific wiring kit, as unlike universal wiring kits, these can be connected to your onboard computer (Body Control Module BCM). That way, the wiring kit can communicate with all modern electronic technology in your car. When scheduling an appointment with Brink, you will always see a vehicle-specific wiring kit.
