Diagnostic & Coding
Southern Towbars offers a complete diagnostic and coding service. This state-of-the-art diagnostic tool is specifically designed for towbar fitting, guaranteeing that your vehicle’s control unit is set correctly and your towbar interacts with all the computer systems and safety features built into your vehicle.
In addition, we only use manufacturer approved vehicle specific wiring kits to guarantee, quality, safety and peace of mind. No need for expensive, main dealer, downloads and sky high labor charges–everything can be re-coded by us as part of your towbar installation.
