2012 Ford Fiesta - Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights - Red LEDs - 4-Way Flat and 7-Way RV Connector - Wireless

Removable LED lights provide signal lights for your towed car without you having to tap into the car's wiring or run wires under the car. Antenna plugs into your RV's 4-way or 7-way connector and sends a signal to the magnetic lights.


Features:

  • Removable tow lights provide stop, tail, and turn functions for your towed car or trailer
  • No need to wire into your trailer or tap into wiring on your towed car
  • Wireless design eliminates the hassle of running cords every time you tow
  • Detachable antenna on trailer connector sends signal that triggers tow lights
    • Bends and rotates for optimal signal
    • Plugs into 4-pole flat or 7-way, blade-style trailer connector on RV or tow vehicle
    • Functions from over 100' away
  • Heavy-duty magnets on the light bases provide a secure grip
    • Foil covering and solid rubber molding around the magnet help to prevent scratches on your car or trailer
  • Long-lasting LEDs are more efficient, faster acting, and brighter than incandescent light bulbs
  • On/off switch on each light lets you use the lights as needed, conserving battery power
  • Durable polycarbonate bases and lens housings
  • Sealed lenses keep moisture out and prevent corrosion
  • Locking pins secure each light to its base
    • Spring-loaded design lets you quickly release each light so you can easily access the battery compartments
  • Handle on top of each base lets you easily carry and position the lights
  • Dust cap covers 4-pole connector when it's not in use to keep out dirt and moisture
  • DOT and SAE compliant
  • 12 AAA batteries (not included) are required to power the lights


Specs:

  • Light dimensions: 5-1/4" wide x 5-7/8" tall
  • Operates on a standard 12-volt system
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: The 4-way flat plug on the included connector will only work with a car-end 4-way plug that hangs from your Ford Fiesta. If your 4-flat is mounted to the rear of your Ford Fiesta with a bracket, you will need to use an adapter loop (sold separately).


Wireless tow lights install on your Ford Fiesta without the hassle of wiring.

These wireless, removable tow lights make it easy to add running lights, brake lights, and turn signals to your towed car or trailer. With this setup, you won't need to tap into existing wiring for installation. With other magnetic tow lights, you have to run cords from the lights to the front of the towed car or trailer - and then run an additional cord to connect to your tow vehicle - every time you need to tow. These tow lights work wirelessly to eliminate that hassle. And the wireless design also allows you to move the lights from one vehicle or trailer to another in minutes.


Foil covers magnet to protect your trailer or towed Ford Fiesta's paint.

The lights attach directly to almost any metal surface with the built-in heavy-duty, foil-covered magnets, which won't damage your Ford Fiesta's paint. And the handy on/off switch lets you use the lights only when you need them, saving battery power.


7-Way, RV-style connector7-Way connector plugged in.

Setup is simple. The included trailer connector has a 7-way plug on one end and a 4-way plug on the other end for versatile use. Plug the connector into the 4-way flat or the 7-way, RV-style port on your RV or tow vehicle. A built-in, detachable antenna on the connector bends and rotates so you can adjust it to get the optimal signal. Turn the switch on each light to "on," and attach the tow lights to the back of your towed car or trailer, as far apart as is practical. There are no wires connecting the lights to each other, so you don't have to worry about securing any excess wiring.


Each light conveniently detaches from its base.

Each light detaches from its base so you can easily access the battery compartment. Six AAA batteries (not included) power each light.

Video Transcript for Pilot Automotive Tow Bar Wiring NV-5164 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Pilot wireless LED magnetic tow lights with the four way flat and seven way RV connector. Now these are removable tow lights that'll provide stop, tail and turn functions for your towed car or trailer, and there's no need to wire into your trailer or tap into your wiring on your towed car. The wireless design will eliminate the hassle of running cords every time you tow. The antenna here on the connector, it is detachable. You can just unscrew it right off if you need. Then just screw it on when you need it.

This will send the signal that'll trigger the tow lights. The antenna does bend and rotate for optimal signal, and you can notice here it'll plug into the seven way blade style trailer connector or the four way flat on your RV or tow vehicle. Once you plug this in, it will function from over 100 feet away. The dust cap you can see on the four way, this will protect it when it's not in use to keep out any dirt or moisture.On the lights themselves, you can see at the very bottom they have these nice, heavy duty magnets on the light base. This provides a very secure grip.

Just to show, you've got a piece of metal here and you can see it'll attach to wherever you'd like. If you notice on the magnet themselves, has a nice foil covering, and this is all solid rubber around there, which will prevent any scratches on your car or your trailer when you install it. They do use long lasting LEDs, which are more efficient, faster acting, and even brighter than incandescent light bulbs. There's nine LEDs per light. If you notice on the back of the light, there is an on and off switch, so it'll let you use the lights as needed, conserving the battery power.They do have a durable polycarbonate base and lens housing.

They are sealed lenses, so they do keep the moisture out, prevent corrosion. If you notice, this is the base that attaches with the magnet. You can adjust it as a spring loaded locking pin right here. This will let you quickly release the light so you can easily access the battery compartment. Basically you just pull that, drop the light into place, release it, and that pin will go over it and lock it into place.

Then if you want to remove it, you can just pull on that spring loaded pin and you can move the light just like that.Now the handle on top of each base will let you easily carry and position the lights where you need them. They are DOT and SAE compliant. Now these lights do require six triple A batteries per light to power the lights. They are not included. A few specs on this, some dimensions, just the light itself overall width from edge to edge is five and a half inches. The height is going to be right at five inches tall, and the depth . Let me pull the light off again. The total depth on just the light itself is going to be right at about two and seven-eighths inches deep. The total unit when we install these, the total width again is going to be the light is five and a half inches. Total height to the very highest point is going to be right at seven inches, and the total depth from the front of the light to the back of the base is going to be right at five and a half inches deep. This does operate on a standard 12 volt system.That should do it for the review on the Pilot wireless LED magnetic tow lights with the four way flat and seven way RV connector.

After buying many, many sets of the wired tow lights for my portable sign business and having to constantly untangle and repair the wires, I decided to spend the extra $ and get something good. These lights work great, just remember to turn off the switches on the lights after use as they run on batteries. I would have paid extra for a case as they are very nice lights and I want to keep them in something safe after use. Great product highly recommend. 149238


Comments

I had previously given these a 5 star and I have had these lights less than a year now and the magnet did not hold the lights to the trailer and I just got done picking up the pieces off the highway. Very disappointed with these lights and will not replace them with a wireless system.

Not good! I hit a bump and for some reason 1 of the lights separated from the base where the battery compartment is and the light fell off and was run over by multiple cars. I have 30 pieces. They worked good up to this point and I am not sure why it separated it was secure.

Thanks for the follow up and information Judy. I see one of our customer service representatives has been in contact with you and with the manufacturer about the warranty of these lights. If you have any further questions please feel free to let us know.

The Pilot magnetic tow lights - wireless arrived with expedited shipping as expected . The plugged the lights into my RV to test them. They worked flawlessly. I did attach them to my Jeep Wrangler and was very concerned with the magnet holding them to the metal of the Jeep. The slightest bump in the road would knock them off the body. The magnet is not very strong. Since I have taillight guards on my Jeep. I had to secure them to the body with two large zip ties. Also one of the plastic latches that hold the light assembly to the light bracket fell off for some reason. If the holding magnet was a lot stronger, I would rate these lights higher. The convenience and price are great. 486679

These lights work good as tail and brake lights but have a problem with blinking on and off. They may blink with the turn 5 times in a row and then ignore the next 20 pulses. Or they ignore all turn signal pulses. They don't work as emergency lights very well at all. They pick up about one of every 10 on/off pulses with the left working a little better than the right. The package states they will recieve at over 100 feet but they only work up to 30 feet. I tried changing the batteries, using a different tow vehicle, and moving the transmitter with no improvement. 158186

Purchase the Pilot magnetic tow lights with wireless controller. worked very well. I was worried about whether the magnetic would hold up under wind when traveling since I could not find any information on wind test. I put a zip tie on each of the lights so I would not lose them in case they didn't stay on. But they did over 800 miles. I still plan on using zip ties just to be sure. Overall, I would give the lights a thumbs up. 172634

After a years worth of use I opted out for the direct electrical connect from an RV supplier and installer. But those lights work as describe very bright even in the day time. I had to double secure them with bungee cords to make certain the would not move over rough roads. With so much theft out there these days I chose to change my options. If you don't mind a couple of minutes install or uninstall these are great. 309111

We purchased the wireless Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights as a temporary solution while waiting for the Trailermate wiring that will use the cars taillights. For the price, I expected a better light. 237202

I tow a Denali behind my coach and use an Airforce One braking system which requires me to disconnect the Denali battery while towing. Therefore I needed lights for the back of the Denali. I made mounts which insert into the rear pockets in the pickup bed. Tail lights and break lights work well, however the left turn signal blinks only once when needed. The right turn signal works good. 488082

I haven't used either of the two products I ordered yet. They were bought in advance for a trip we are taking next month. As for eTrailer? It, once again, has been a pleasure doing business with them (that's why they are my 1st stop for all things towing). Ask a question, get an answer, order parts, get what you ordered and always quicker than what I expect. 220740

The wireless tow lights are great & easy to use & the magnets are stronger than the wind at 70mph but you need a metal surface to mount them & with so much plastic on vehicles it is sometimes hard to find a place to mount them, another concern is security of the lights, there isn't an easy way to lock them down from someone removing them from the towed vehicle. 290564

Best product I have bought in years. I have multiple trailers that have different pin connectors and most of the wiring on these trailers have shorted out over time. No need to repair the system, just put these on and off you go. Great for campers hauling trailers with questionable connections. Worth every penny spent on them. Thanks Peter T. 450860

I've used the wireless, magnetic tow lights for over 9,000 miles of towing, and they've workwd great! Setup takes 2 minutes, LED lights are very bright, and the batteries last a long time! I've only changed them once, but only because I wanted a fresh set for a 4,000 mile trip. I definitely recommend these for towing a car behind a motorhome. 439602

lights worked ok. when running lights we on the turn signals did not blink, stayed on constantly until the turn signal was turned off. worked fine when running lights were not on. magnetic bases are weak. any bump would cause lights to fall off of vehicle they were placed on. ended up loosing one. 469595

Wish it was a rechargable, but for the price, we will see how long batteries last. Will be using it for towing a vehicle behind an RV. Eliminates having to cut into the wireing of a 2015 Jeep Grand Cheorkee Summitt, and all the possible problems that can go along with typical trailer wireing. 236837

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Wiring?


  • Recommended Components For Flat-Towing 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • We do offer base plates that are designed to work with a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as long as it has factory bumpers installed. When flat-towing there are 5 items needed. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and most states not require a supplemental brake system. I recommend either the Roadmaster part # RM-521448-5 and part # RM-521448-4. These will not work with the 10th Anniversary Rubicon or Call of Duty Edition. The tow bar...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Chevy Sonic
  • I looked up the owner's manual for a 2017 Chevrolet Sonic and I saw that you can dinghy (or flat) tow a Sonic with an automatic transmission unless it is the RS model. On page 279 of the owner's manual it only specifies that the DLIS fuse from the instrument panel fuse block needs to be pulled. If that is the case then all you need to do is install the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM76511 (see attached video) to make uninstalling the fuse much easier. However, if the dealer is...

  • Wiring Harness for a 2017 Ford Edge SEL to Tow a Trailer and to be Towed Behind a Motorhome
  • The wiring harness that you need to tow a trailer with your 2017 Ford Edge SEL (or for any vehicle for that matter) will be different than the harness that you will need to be able to tow your Edge behind your motorhome. The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit # HM56011 that you mentioned will not fit your Edge. Instead you need to use magnetic lights like the Pilot # NV-5164. Your battery does need to be disconnected which will require two 50 ohm, 10 watt resistors so that the taillight...

  • How Long Do Batteries Last And What Is Lumen Output For Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights
  • I spoke with my contact at pilot and they told me that the life of batteries in the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights, part # NV-5164, would depend on the usage. They said if you were to leave the lights on, you could expect to need to replace the batteries after 12 hours of use. They also told me that the output lumens for these lights is equivalent to a 35 watt light bulb. That equates to about 130 lumens.

That tow bar comes with the safety cables needed so you will have that covered as well.

  • You are correct. The Pilot Wireless Tow Lights are weatherproof and can be used when driving through snow or rain, but they are not submersible. They should be removed before launching your boat and then remounted when you pull the boat back on the trailer and ready to tow it again.

  • Recommended Lighting and Braking Systems for Flat Towed 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport JKU
  • There are simple and cost-effective lighting solutions for towing your Jeep Wrangler that do not require drilling into your taillight housings. You can refer to the linked article for broad background information on all toad lighting options. I also linked an article that covers all the essentials of flat towing a vehicle. What I most-often recommend is a set of magnetic towing lights such as # TL21RK or one of the other similar items shown on the linked page. These have powerful magnetic...

  • Recommendation For Tow Lights For 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited
  • With a plastic roof on your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited, your wireless tow light options are limited. One option to consider is to stick magnetic wireless lights like the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights Item # NV-5164 to either the metal side of your 2018 Jeep or to the bumper if it is metal. You will have to experiment with mounting to see if you can get a secure enough hold for the wireless option to be effective. If the side or bumper will not work then I recommend adding something...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 2013 Kia Optima on a Tow Dolly
  • I checked the online manual for your 2013 Kia Optima and didn't see anything about recreational dolly towing, only emergency dolly towing. While the manual didn't give any distance restrictions for dolly towing it is always best to confirm whether it is safe or not with a Kia dealer. If it is okay then you simply need a tow dolly and then some lights. Tow dollies tend to have lights on them but it helps to have some extra lights to make sure people around you can tell what you are doing. For...

  • Magnetic LED Towing Lights Needed Compatible with a 7-Way Plug
  • Sounds like you were describing the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164. These wireless lights use red LEDs and will function from over 100 feet away. The connector is compatible with both 4-Way and 7-Way options so you can use it for multiple applications. The lights do require 12 AAA batteries for operation but since they are LED they do not draw as much power as the typical incandescent lights do. If you are wanting to mount the lights on the sides of your jacks then I recommend...

  • Towing Light Recommendation for 2011 Cadillac SRX with LED Taillights
  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and using the Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter, # 118158, on a vehicle with LED taillights can be problematic. Since the LED lights draw less power, it can cause the lights to be faintly lit when they should not be. If you are looking to operate the signal lights on your 2011 Cadillac SRX while it is being towed, I recommend going with Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights, # NV-5164. These removable LED lights provide signal lights for your towed car without...

  • Recommended Components To Flat-Tow A 2014 Ford Focus
  • When you want to flat-tow your 2014 Ford Focus, there are 5 things you will need. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and most states now require supplemental brake systems. Some of the items are fairly easy to install, but there may be some trimming or cutting required to install some of the components. I recommend having a certified mechanic complete the installation for you. This way you will know everything is set up properly. The...

  • Tow Bar Wiring that Bypasses Vehicle Wiring on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The bulb and socket kit # RM-155-2 is not one of the tow bar lighting systems that is recommended for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee (it doesn't fit) so I do not recommend using it. For another option that bypasses the vehicle wiring you can use a magnetic light kit such as # C-ATL20A or EZ mount kit # EZT20B at the rear hatch. We also have wireless options # NV-5164 and # LIWSR1-7B. I have linked videos for all 4 of these kits for you.

  • Where is the Best Place for Magnetic Tow Lights on a 2010 Chevy Colorado
  • Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164 will work best on the roof of your 2010 Chevy Colorado. That is where the most metal, flat surface area will be. The magnets on these lights are strong so provided the surface they are on is flat then they won't fall off.

  • Equipment Needed to Flat Tow 2012 Hyundai Behind RV
  • To connect a tow bar to a vehicle, you'll first need to install a vehicle-specific base plate on the vehicle. The base plate installs onto the front frame structure of the vehicle, which will provide a strong attachment point for the tow bar. In addition to the tow bar and the base plates, you'll also need some other equipment to flat tow your vehicle. You'll need safety cables like part # RM-643 to secure the vehicle to the motorhome in the event the tow bar or base plate should fail....
