Hi there ,good evening to you
Ok when fitting a towbar to these newer transits you cannot wire the towbar electrics straight into the lights
You should ideally fit the correct ford electrics if not you need to fit a buzzer box (these are avaiable from most caravan or auto suppliers
Newer vehicles actually need programmed to tell the BCMii there is a towbar fitted
There is no fuses used on mist lights on the modern day transit as with other firds the BCMii (body control module ) supplies power to the lights
If this system sees a short or overloaded circuit in your case it won't blow a fuse it just shuts the system down (no power sent out )
In this case the codes need to be erased from the BCMii before it will allow power to be supplied to the relavent lights
It is a very complex and clever module
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
