I bought the trailer harness kit from Rovers North and have read the detailed install instructions on this site (https://www.rangerovers.net/outfitting/towing/lm/harness.html), but my 2007 SC has a different white connector that the single red wire from the new harness is supposed to be insterted into. Also confused as to why the kit has 2 relays (one 4-spade and one 5-spade) when the only port on my board appears to only have connectors for the 4-spade harness. If anyone knows the answer to these 2 questions or has a trailer harness installed and could take a couple of minutes and pull the access panel on the rear-left side of the truck and take a close-up showing (especially) the position of the red wire for the trailer harness I would be grateful!

Which kit did you receive, the 500012 or the 500480?

Heres mine in my 06. I have the YWJ500012 kit and it is literally plug and play, any wiring not in the skinny black lacing is part of the trailer harness. The wires have lacing down below the edge of the floor and across the spare tire well . The new module mounts just above the right end of the rear fuse panel, and it plugs into a harness from the trailer connector under the truck. There is a relay with 4 wires going to it and a 6 pin connector that plugs into a completely spare white 6 connector plug just above and to the right of the fuse panel. there are no individual wires that need to be landed in the fuse block, everything just plugs in, except for two ground terminals down in the spare tire well.
That white 6 pin connector is attached to the sidewall of the truck has no wires on the bottom side of it when you first get there. The new harness plugs in there, and I assume that is where the power and data connections are made, because my lights work and the trailer symbol comes up on the dash and my suspension height can't be changed when a trailer is plugged into the connector underneath the back bumper.

I am just trying to install my factory trailer light harness (part # YWJ500012) into my 2006 HSE. Everything goes together as per the instructions, except for a single orange wire with a connector. the instructions say to remove a white plug from above the relays and insert the orange wire into it. The instructions are not clear which slot, so I went to this page https://www.rangerovers.net/outfitting/towing/lm/harness.html Except in the slot he says to use is another wire, when i took that wire out, my tailgate release stopped working, switched them back and it works, so where does the orange wire go? You can see it in the image below. Thanks for any help.



Here you can see him inserting it into the slot I am talking about, there are two other unused mini slots that would work size wise.

Your kit is slightly different than mine. You are using a spare relay slot in the fuse panel, mine uses that relay that I have pulled out and is just floating on the end of the harness in the bottom center of my photo with the orange, white yellow and green wires going to the connector. That relay came with my setup already wired and the relay installed, I'm not using a spare relay slot in the fuse panel for my harness. I guess thats why I did't have to connect an orange wire to any other connector in the truck. Usually I have that relay tucked away up in the back right corner. Looks like you will need to figure out which open connector location connects to one of your spare relay plugs. I can't find a decent wiring diagram of that connector for an 06 (and the 05 and before are different).

Thanks for the reply, I will post a screenshot of my fuzebox, I have 6 relays in use already, replaced the one indicated in the instructions with the green one, in the slot which oddly enough is marked as the cigarette lighter on the information plate? They also included a 2nd relay which is not mentioned/shown in the instructions.

What I did notice looking at the instructions today is it appears to say slot 3 on the plug, of course it does not say which way to count from, left to right, start at the top or bottom?

Ask an independent Land Rover shop, some may be more willing to help without a $160 flat fee like a stealership.

Hers an image of connector 2020 (the one used to connect to the rear fuse panel) from the 02 to 05 electrical library. Connector may be the same in the 06, I don't have the 06 and up electrical library to check. I added the notes about the front view and what the CCT number indicates on the list of cavities used.

One of the sets of pictures in the vendor, or instruction links is labeled backwards. You definitely need the kit with both the 7 pin circular connector and the 4 pin flat connector under the truck though. I must have the 480 because I have both connectors, the separate relay and it works.

I just sent the LR dealership where I bought the harness and email with the question to check my VIN again and see if they sent me the wrong part.

Hello, I don't mean to hijack your thread but I too have an '06 HSE and I have the earlier kit from a parted out '03 that looks the same as the one you have. There is no additional relay in the harness, and it has the loose orange wire that you add to the plug in the fusebox. I don't need the later flat four pin connector at the other end, and that is the only difference in what the late harness offers, so can we figure out what is needed to make the early harness work in our '06s if all we need is the 7 pin connector at the hitch?
