    Hello,
    This morning I have fitted a peugeot tow bar to my 206 sw (estate).
    The last thing I have to do is to splice the 7 core cable into the
    car's wiring loom - but I'm clueless as to which wires in the loom
    does what...
    I thought I was sure the car was multiplexed, but looking at that loom
    there seem to be enough wires there to do everything neccessary at the
    back of the car without need for muxing??

    Anyway, does anyone out there know where I might find the info needed
    to identify those cores? ie a wiring schematic.

    Certainly I did, but these only relate to the towbar kit, not the
    particular vehicle it may be used on. I need to identify which colour
    wire in the cars loom is the brake light, the right indicator, left
    indicator, chassis etc so I can spice in the 7 core towbar cable.

    Can't help with the wiring diagram, but you can buy a vehicle specific plug
    in loom kit , for certain cars if you don't want to cut into your wiring,
    Have a look at http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Fit-your-own-towbars-Towequipe
    He seems to be selling a good few for Peugeots of various sorts

    Top tip thanks for that.
    £72 is a bit steep there though, seeing as I only paid £25 off ebay
    for the towbar itself. (its a Bosal, Peugeot approved with a
    detachable swan neck. Bargain!) But, if it has any relay's in the kit
    that are necessary I might have to consider it.
    Someone has suggested I just DIY it and get the voltmeter to ID which
    core does what. Even if the car is multiplexed, all you're doing is
    coming off the lighting cct in parrallel to connect extra lamps, so I
    can't see there being a problem doing that...?
    Thanks

  6. Just trace the wires from the tail lights. Note that if your car has a
    warning light for burned out brake bulbs in the instrument cluster, you may
    need a relay for the brake light wire.
