Ford Kuga Hybrid 2022 with Tow Trust detachable towbar

This 2022 Ford Kuga detachable tow bar was fitted at our premises in Horndean, Hampshire. We fitted a Tow Trust towbar and Right Connections 7 pin dedicated wiring kit.

Once the vehicle specific wiring kit has been fitted, we use battery support equipment to ensure the battery remains at a constant voltage when coding. The vehicle's software is updated through our Complete Diagnostics Online Coding tool to activate towing related safety features when a trailer is plugged in. These features include:

  • Bulb failure monitoring - the trailer indicators are integrated into the vehicle's bulb fail system, alerting the driver to a trailer bulb failure through a notification on the dash. 

  • Trailer Stability Programme - this safety feature is an extension of the vehicle's Electronic Stability Programme. Using sensors built into the vehicle, it detects any "snaking" from the trailer and brings it back under control by applying the brakes individually on the car.

  • Reversing sensor cut-out - the reversing sensors on the vehicle are automatically deactivated and the vehicle shows a trailer symbol on the dash board when reversing – it shows on the infotainment screen.

  • Fog cut-out - the vehicle fog light is deactivated when towing to avoid glare from the fog light reflecting back into the car. 

  • Notification when trailer connected and disconnected.

  • Cross-traffic alert and Blind-spot assist deactivated when towing.

The owner of this Ford Kuga will be using the detachable tow bar for towing his garden trailer.
