    Morning, im looking to get a tow bar fitted to my 08 CR-V and was after some info from anyone who has had one fitted. I need a fixed type due to the cycle carrier we have but heard a rumor that it might upset the rear parking sensors! any truth in this? Next question is does the tow bar electrics get wired into the cars VSA system?
    Whats your thoughts guys!

    Lee I think people have fitted non Honda tow-bars but like you said have opted for the Honda tow bar electrics for the reliability and to co-exist with the current parking sensors.

    Interesting; I didn't realise Honda will sell the electrics separately. Can i ask which connectors are used and what the part numbers are please?

    I fitted non Honda electrics to my 09 CR-V and have had no problem with parking sensors unless bike rack or trailer hitched. But on lower dash to left of steering wheel is an override switch, just switch them off when using tow bar :Smile:
