my towbar (from Towequipe) just came with a pre-wired socket and scotch-loks:eek:.

The colour codes used are.......

Vehicle............... Trailer cable
Red/Blu............... Brown & Black (there seems to be only one source) ........ Side/tail lights.
Pink.................... Red ....................................................................... Stop lights
Green/Blk ............ Green .................................................................... LH Indicator*
Green/Yel ........... Yellow .................................................................... RH Indicator*
Black ................. White ..................................................................... Earth
Blu/Pink .............. Blue ....................................................................... Rear Fog

Blu/Whi ............................................................................................. Reversing lights

* - may need to go through a warning relay (mine did).

If I was going to do it again I would use a Molex 3901-2120 with 3900-0039 contacts and the mating 3901-2121 with 3900-0041 contacts. that way, using 4 links, it would be completely plugable. I had to solder the indicator buzzer relay to the tow bar cable.

Further to my earlier post and the above excellent posting I soldered short wires into the car wiring at the rear lights and crimped on female bullets
The extra wiring was then joined with male bullets making it removeable as suggested above but with several male/female bullet connections
It has been removed and used on 3 XTs
If anyone is interested on the latest XT there is a multi socket behind the LHS rear panel and I connected to that using small flat crimp on tags that are used in screw up connectors
This gave a much better contact surface area than using scotchlocks and did the job in the absence of the male plug
