Ford Transit Custom Towbars

Ford Transit Custom Towing Specifics

The Ford Transit Custom was first introduced in 2012 by the American manufacturer as a light commercial vehicle, offering great towing abilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.

Ford Transit Custom Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Ford Transit Custom vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.

We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Ford Transit Custom vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.

Check your Ford warranty for more information.

Bypass Relays

All tow bars for the Ford Transit Custom models will require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.

A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.

Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.

Coding

This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.

All Ford Transit Custom vehicles will require coding.

Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
