Towbar - MY21

Post by GreyPaint » Fri Mar 19, 2021 1:12 pm

OK, so I have a Towbar off an older Velar - LandRover Removable Towbar - that has the electronics and wiring loom.

I have opened the Loadpsace Trim panels and I cannot see a compatible connector there at all - only a 4 pin connector, with 3 used, when the towbar module has an 8-pin all used...

Anyone any knowledge of this?

Have a look on Topix. You can see and download fitting instructions, think under accessories. Think if I remember plugs in under boot floor, into ECU.

I have pretty much confirmed that the Towbar Control Module has changed -the one for MY21 and the Wiring Loom to the towbar is different

So, a wee update - I was able to purchase the wiring loom, which has changed since Dec2020 to a different loom - with the same connectors to the Towbar Control Module as before, but doesn't work. The TCM needs to be charged as well - I found the part number, only to find dealer cannot order me one, as they come as part of the entire towbar - or separate, if you are in USA or Australia!

Complained to JLR and we will see where this goes!
