CAN-Bus & Digital Towbar Wiring

Does the word “CAN-Bus” make you think twice when quoting on that towbar job? Well, it shouldn’t… You have the choice, so choose safety and connect the right trailer harness the first time.
Making sure you use the correct vehicle specific trailer harness on many modern vehicles ensures all vehicle safety features are still active after the trailer is connected.
Erich Jaeger Wiring Harnesses cater for the following vehicle safety features:

  • Bulb out technology
  • Active Cruise Control
  • Stability Control
  • Lane Change technology
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • City Parking (Rear City Braking)
  • Automatic Rear City Braking
