Frequently Asked Question (FAQs)

1WILL I NOTICE THE BENEFITS?
Most of benefits won’t be instantaneously noticeable. However, immediate benefits still include automatic fog cut out, trailer light warning against failure and automatic deactivation of original equipment parking sensors. The most important benefits of them all is reliability.
2WHAT HAPPENS IF MY TRAILER INDICATOR FAILS?
Whenever any of the left or right indicator bulbs fail on the trailer, the vehicle's indicators and dash light will flash at twice the usual rate. A text showing on the dash panel aided by some assign kits will display to warn the driver.
3WHY IS THERE NO BEEPING WHEN I INDICATED?
The C2 modules gives visual caution of trailer indicator failure indicating some dedicated towbar wiring kits instead of the contemporary beeping or operate a towing dash warning light.
4WHAT IS C2 CONTROL?
It is compulsory that the driver can check the audibility and visual functions of the trailer in Germany, Austria and United Kingdom. The complicated ultra-modern electronics in certain vehicles means the C2 control in certain kits is standard.
5WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENCES IN COLOUR WIRES TO THE SOCKET COMPARED TO STANDARD UK COLOURS?
The colours in the dedicated kit loom may conform to ISO1724.
6OF WHAT IMPORTANCE IS THE YELLOW WIRE THAT DOESN’T CONNECT TO ANYTHING?
Most 7 pin kits have an output to connect to the reverse pin on a 12S socket in case twin electrics be required. The yellow wire is usually for this purpose.
7WHAT DOES THE MICRO SWITCH OPERATE?
When towing the switch usually disconnects the car's rear fog lights and reversing sensors.
8THE DEDICATED KIT IS ONLY AVAILABLE WITH A 13-PIN SOCKET, BUT MY CARAVAN HAS TWO 7-PIN PLUGS?
Adapters are available that will convert from a 13 pin socket into either both 12N/12S 7 pin sockets for twin electrics or from a 13 pin socket to a single 12N 7 pin socket for normal light functions.
9THE DEDICATED KIT IS ONLY AVAILABLE WITH A 7 PIN SOCKET, BUT MY CARAVAN HAS A 13 PIN PLUG?
Adapters are available converting from 12N/12S, 7 pin sockets into both 12N/12S functions in a 13-pin socket for twin electrics or from a 12N, 7 pin socket to a 12N, 13 pin socket for normal light functions.
10WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF BUYING A DEDICATED WIRING SYSTEM FROM CBS AUTOMOTIVE?
To summarise a dedicated kit:

• Is swift and simple to connect to the sockets in the vehicle.

• Comes complete with all required components and electronic modules.

• There are no conflicts with the other electronics of the vehicle.

• It has reliable and remarkable connections which continually function faultlessly for many years.

• There is no risk or damage to the vehicle wiring.

• Main dealer standard.

• Warranty.

• Experienced and qualified staff.

• Has high quality components, often original equipment.

11WHAT IS A 12N CONNECTOR ON A CAR?
The normal power required by the caravan/trailer for indicators, brake, fog and sidelights are provided via the 12N connector. This is a socket on the vehicle and a plug on the caravan/trailer.
12WHAT is THE EXTRA WIRE GOING TO A SWITCH IN MY SOCKET FOR?
Most dedicated kits have two or three extra wires going to a micro switch in the socket, this is to enable the Trailer Control Unit to recognise when a trailer is connected.
13WHAT DOES A 12N CONNECTOR LOOKS LIKE?
To identify the 12N connector, the socket cover is usually coloured black and houses 7 pins which are numbered 1 to 7. The plug is also black and has a slot that locates opposite the cover hinge of the socket. The central contact (number 7) is female in the plug.

"When my VW dealer fitted a replacement radio they disturbed the TomTom hard wired unit that CBS had fitted rendering it loose & no longer receiving the car's electrical supply. CBS replaced the sticky pads on the dash mount holder that the VW dealer had lost & they wired in a new lead to the dash mount to replace the one that had it's micro USB plug damaged by clumsy fitting. All while I waited & for less than £10. Highly recommended!"
