Ok, I installed mine too but when I had issues, I dug back in and removed it to see if I did anything wrong or the fuse was bad or I could improve the ground connection and check for other issues. And I thought, maybe they just need the module itself so I don't have to bring the car into the bay just for that.

But yeah, it makes sense that it has to be installed so the ODB or iiTool can interface with it, or activate it while installed.

Thanks once again, I'll let you know how I made out.

Jay

They will install the module if you need it installed. Mine I already had installed so they just programmed it for if I remember correctly $50 or so they just connect to the cars odbII port and activate the module if you have it installed already no need to leave the module exposed they don't need to touch the unit if you already have it installed in the LR2.
What "Module" are you referring to in this thread?

The trailer wiring module/control box that comes with the Land Rover trailer wiring harness kit - LR003108. I just installed this along with LR007482 tow bar kit for North America. The aftermarket kits do not have this control box or 'module', and they do not not required the actuating of the trailer/tow function.

Oliver had the same issue with his LR2, where the individual trailer wires were only reading between 3 and 6 Volts and trailer lights would not work until he had it actuated via proper diagnostic tool. Other LR models are factory set to tow as well, and do not need this activation or actuation.

I believe the internal BCM is what actually gets activated. I had some initial confusion if the harness module could be activated on its own but that was incorrect. (kinda dumb on my part actually - hehehe.)

I am not too far from the iiD Tool manufacturer in Montreal and they will activate it for much less than a dealer.

I know this thread is old, but those of you who have installed tow hitches, please let me know which brand you went with. The Hidden Hitch is discontinued, and while findable, my local tow shop wants to install the Draw Tite. My concern is that it is angled, and looks like it might stick out past the bumper, and won't be as hidden as the Hidden Hitch (Pun intended). Has anyone gone with the Curt hitch? Thoughts please. Thanks in advance
