Towbar and trailer modules are indispensable devices that enhance the safety and functionality of a vehicle towing an external object. It can be seen as an electronic interface between a vehicle's electrical system and that of a trailer. The reason why it is essential to attach a towbar module is for safety reasons. You must ensure the lights, brake lights, indicators and other electrical functions are synchronised with your customer’s towing vehicle.
When the towbar module is not properly functioning, incorrect electrical signalling between the vehicle and the trailer can occur. This can cause dangerous situations, such as brake lights which don’t illuminate when your customer brakes.
