You initially posted the thread in the 'How To' section which is meant for handy dandy guides not questions, so we eventually moved your thread to the correct section (via the 'Should Have Read the Rules' section).

When you buy generic tow bar wiring it usually comes with all the required components (e.g. beeper) and they aren't expensive. Why don't you check them out?

Nope... an ask and leave person.

I had a towbar fitted... didn't do it myself, but it does have a connection from the FUSE box to power it, I think they used a Universal Bypass relay.

To be fair, for 220 I didn't care too much, i expected a cheap job, but the electrics have lifetime warranty!
