Re: Scenic towbar headache

Doubt it, but yours is the old fashioned style.
Mk1 Scenics didn't have can bus system.

Read through all those links and take note of the points about audible warning for the indicators and possible overloading of the UCH which drives the indicators.

For my infrequent use of a tiny trailer, I just wired direct to the lighting wires with no problems as yet.

If you intend towing a caravan or larger trailer on a regular basis, you might want to investigate the legalities further.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
