Land Rover Towing Electrics

I have created a separate document library for all Land Rover electrical towing information. The instructions are for Land Rover OEM towing kits only. If you have an after market or non OEM kit, please refer to the instructions with that kit. Note: Copyright for all these documents resides with JLR Ltd.

  1. Thanks for the info, I have fitted a genuine Land Rover towbar and control box my gray socket works fine but I have no lights on the van, you said it had to go on the computer does this tell the car a towbar has been fitted?

    • Hi Jim
      Yes, the vehicles ECU needs to have the tow package activated. This will also let the vehicle know when it detects a trailer connected to de-activate the vehicle rear fog lights and only turn on the trailer fog lights, the same with the reversing lights. )It stops glair from lighting up the front of the trailer at night). It also adjusts the ABS and ESP (where fitted) while towing. If you have an Auto box, the shift patterns also get altered when towing.

      I think Land Rover main dealers used to charge about £100 for doing this, but there are independents that have the required computer and software that will be able to do it for much less.
