thanks grayfox.... but that wasnt really i wanted to know lol, in the kit there was a spare brake light switch that fits in to the top of the brake pedal..... anyway i fitted my towbar today .took 5 hours but got there in the end and chuffed with myself , had a oops moment when i started the car and check the electrics ...... the brake warning light (on dashboard) stayed on.... so thought it must be the new brake light switch which had 4 connections and the old one had 2, so swapped it around and put the old one back in, switched on the engine and the brake warning light still stayed on..... so thought i have to take to the honda garage to turn it off, went out in the car tonight and realised it was the handbrake warning light that was on and nothing to do with the towbar.....
