Honda Accord Towing Specifics

Honda Accord Hatchback Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Honda Accord Hatchback 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 Honda Accord Hatchback vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
