Hi all, I’ve fitted a Ford electrics loom and module to the wife’s ford kuga 2016 titanium and I have to get the ecu programmed now I am just checking should the socket not work at all until the software settings have been changed?

Many thanks Tristram

Well just think about it, you have a trailer attached. Thats 2 more brake lights, more indicator bulbs, extra fog light, the body control module will have a hissy fit and put every fault light on.

Well it might be on but, when you connect it will flag faults.
