Is the Tow-Pro Elite suitable for Ford 2019MY Vehicles?

Tow-Pro Elite suitability with Ford 2019MY vehicle

 

The REDARC Tow-Pro Elite, when installed correctly, suit any 12 or 24v vehicle used to tow trailers, up to 4.5tonnes ATM, in the Australian marketplace.

 

All modern vehicles, which have any of the following onboard systems, will suit the REDARC Tow-Pro Elite:

 

  • CAN
  • all forms of stability, trace and yaw control
  • Cruise control
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Collision avoidance
  • Autonomous and emergency braking
  • Lane departure technology
  • Trailer sway control
  • Blown bulb and trailer detection and fitted with a towbar

 

REDARC has released to the market a series of Tow-Pro wiring kits (TPWKIT-… part numbered) which are vehicle specific, engineered to ensure that when installed as per the included instructions, give reliable operation and do not affect any of the onboard vehicle systems or trigger fault codes. Installers using the Tow-Pro Wiring Kits will reduce fitment time, ensuring a fault-free installation and trouble-free operation.

 

In releasing the 2019MY Ranger and Everest models, Ford Australia has introduced Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).

 

AEB does not interact or affect the trailer brakes but it does change the location in the vehicle where the brake signal for the Tow-Pro Elite can be sourced.

 

To support this change, REDARC has developed and will release a new Tow-Pro wiring kit for the 2019MY Ford Ranger and Everest vehicles with AEB.

For:

  • PXI, PXII and 2019MY non-AEB, the REDARC Tow-Pro wiring kit TPWKIT-001 is suitable.
  • 2019MY vehicles with AEB, a new kit is required, TPWKIT-012, which REDARC will release in the coming months.

 


The difference between an AEB and non-AEB vehicle, for the installation of the Tow-Pro Elite, is the location in the vehicle where the brake signal can be sourced. 

 

REDARC, in developing their Tow-Pro wiring kits ensure that the kits:

  • Interface correctly with the vehicle
  • Do not impede the safe operation of all onboard systems
  • Do not trigger fault codes

Ford has released two accessory electric trailer brake controller kits.

  • One kit for 2019MY vehicles with AEB
  • One kit for PXI, PXII and the 2019MY non-AEB vehicles.

Both kits from Ford include the award-winning and Australian made REDARC Tow-Pro Elite Electric Trailer Brake Controller.
