Hey, I just wanted to check in with the harness to see when you'll be sending it out...I'm in no rush, but I'll only be at that Virginia address for a couple more weeks before we head to NY for the summer so wanted to make sure I got my hands on it before then. Thanks!

Anyone know the difference between the AB 9438 and the 9439A??


9438
Trailer Connector - 7-Way European Round To Flat-4 Conversion Plug / Harness
Trailer Wiring Adapter: 7 Way Euro Round To Flat 4 Conversion Plug
(This handy Flat-4 trailer wiring converter is a plug-n-play solution for Rovers with a stock 7-Way European-style trailer connection. Simply plug it in to your stock 7-way connection and the opposite end has a functional flat-4 standard North American connector to rout to your trailer and enables your brake light and turn signal functions.)





9439A
Trailer Wiring Kit - Flat 4
Land Rover Trailer Wiring Kit - Flat 4
(An Atlantic British Exclusive! We've specially-developed these trailer wiring packages for Range Rover Classic, Discovery I and Defender vehicles. These kits seamlessly convert your Rover wiring plug to a standard 'Flat 4' North American spec plug. Our quality harness kits are dependable and cost a fraction of the genuine versions. They feature a rubber plug cap to protect the exterior trailer plug from the elements and easy plug-and-go installation means they can be installed in minutes. Stop and turn functions rated for up to 5 amps. Taillight function rated for up to 6 amps. Complete instructions included.)





I used the 9438, and though it may have nothing to do with the trailer harness, I have since had to replace my brake light switch and am now getting around to tracking down why I have no reverse lights. All lights are LED except side markers. Trailer lights are not LED. Maybe I used the wrong harness from AB?

The top one plugs into the UK/Euro trailer socket on the vehicle and has the 'logic' circuit in the plug to convert from separate stop/tail and indicator to the NA combined S/T/T lights. The lower does exactly the same but is plugged directly into the connector on the rear chassis loom (assuming the truck has that connector).

If you don't have either of these just get one of these from your local Napa etc...

And if you want to tow a trailer with E-brakes you'll need a controller and a 7 pin trailer socket adaptor on the truck too, like this...

Hope that helps....

Thanks Andy - that helps, sort of. I have the same socket that Lav showed in the original post. It looks like a connector that is simply surrounded by a plastic housing to make a socket that is attached to the bottom of the rear cross member. So, I'm not quite following - but it's my lack of understanding and not your explanation.

I have the top adaptor. Used it once and subsequently lost my brake and reverse lights, but I don't know that those issues are correlated to using the harness. (I didn't notice that I had no brake lights right away; a couple days later, a sheriff's deputy was kind enough to point it out to me over his patrol car loudspeaker. And just discovered that I have no reverse lights this past weekend.) I do know that both the brake and reverse lights were working about a month ago. The harness is just a hunch, thinking maybe I'm using the wrong one.
