How is the trailer wiring connected at the dealer to a 2000 V70?

Post by EstVolvo » Sun Mar 20, 2016 3:58 pm

Hello,
How is the trailer wiring connected to a 2000 V70 at the dealership?
Is there a connector to be used for trailer wiring already pre-installed at the factory?
Could you please tell me what the green connector shown in my picture is for?
Thank you so much,

I'll check my 1999 folder and see if I have the documents. I did this over 12 years ago so that piece of RAM has been long overwritten with YouTube cat videos

Do you have the factory harness? I had one installed on my 850 and later transferred it to my 98 V70 XC (different hitch because of XC). I must have the wiring diagrams on a different computer somewhere. The factory harness does indeed connect right into the tail lights. I'll see what I can find or take pictures of my installation.

Not to bring a post back from the dead...but I'm also interested in how the factory harness was connected to our vehicles...

Yes please. Also shouldn't this be added to the FAQ?
