    I have fitted a towbar to my 2003 CR-V,and require information regarding connecting the wires from the trailes socket to the wires in the connector which is blue taped inside left hand panel.Can these wires be joined directly using connectors,or is it not as simple as that?

    On my 2005 I connected directly without a bypass relay and it was fine.

    If worried, just fit a bypass relay. It includes the buzzer so is actually easier to fit than direct wiring plus extra warning buzzer.

    Bypass relay will need a 12v permanent feed though, can't remember if that's in the plug you mention. If not, look in handbook at fuse box for Tow bar and make sure approrpriate fuses are in fuse box and then check plug again for power.

    On my Gen3 2009 I fitted bypass relay :Smile:
