Why is it that nobody has suggested pulling out the fuse that protects the
sensor circuit, is this not possible on a 54 tdci 130 estate ?.

Because it is much better to introduce a relay into the sensor circuit that
energises when caravan electrics are connected, thus stopping the sensors
from being interfered with by projections to rear of car.

All the best, Peter.

Or buy a Ford towbar electric kit that will disable the sensors when you are
towing!

The problem Paul, is the sensors picking up the ball when not towing.

I have so far been advised to use nail varnish on the middle two, as it
makes them less sensitive or sellotape ......now we are into the tech stuff
!!!!!!!!!!!!
