Using Lexia for C4gp 2016 towbar electrics.

Post by Doodle »

Looking for advice on using lexia to tell the car (C4gp 2016) to accept the dedicated Citroen towbar wiring loom, please forgive my ignorance but I've only done the basics so far, so I'm after finding out how to do it !! Any help greatly appreciated.

You should just need to go into the ‘Accessories’ menu and locate the relevant option to enable it from there. There shouldn’t be much more to it than that, assuming it is all wired in as per the instructions, fuses installed where applicable.

Thanks for the quick response, I'm waiting on my new lexia software coming so fingers crossed it'll be ok !! The harness will be wired in properly as per the instruction. Thanks again

Some of them need a fuse installing too, but all the instructions should be with the kit if you are installing an OEM kit.

I did this a couple of months ago on ours....https://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/ ... &start=495

Electrics on ours worked out the box without needing to put the Lexia on. The power connector is fixed on the side of the frame above the BSI, and there isn't much length in the wire. I had to take the glove box out to find it - and I doubt I would have been able to get it loose and plug it in even if I had been able to see it!! Check that the boot will shut (carefully, or the bumper top gets scratched...!) before you bolt all the bumper back on - there are some clips on the top that need to be engaged under the boot lip.
