After the installation of vehicle specific CANbus wiring kit, there will most likely be the need for a some recoding of the electronics system through the diagnostic connection. This is required in order to activate any towing related safety feature(s) that the vehicle may be equipped with, which will then function automatically when a trailer or caravan is connected to the towing socket.
The Autologic Diagnostic Tool allows Mota-bars to install towbar electrics exactly as the manufacturers Main Dealer would, updating and coding the vehicle specific wiring kit.
The Diagnostic Tool works in conjunction with the Vehicle Specific Wiring kit (VSW) and can (in certain vehicles such as VW Passats & Golfs, Skoda Octavias etc) activate built in safety features in the vehicle such as Trailer Stability Program. This will detect any snaking motion from the trailer or caravan and bring it back under control using the brakes individually on the car.
