2012 Ford Fiesta - Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit

Diode kit allows you to use your Ford Fiesta's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. Wires 2-wire and 3-wire systems to operate as a combined lighting systems. Includes 7-wire to 6-wire Flexo-Coil electrical cord.


Features:

  • Lets you wire your Ford Fiesta to accept your RV's tail, brake, and turn signal lights for flat towing
  • Wires towed car as combined system so that brake and turn signals travel along same wire
  • Prevents electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your Ford Fiesta's electrical components
  • Diodes powder coated aluminum case is corrosion resistant and provides protection from the elements
  • Brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if used with supplemental braking system
  • Flexo-Coil cord is resitant to water, oil, chemicals, and has silicone-injected plugs to prevent corrosion
  • Center pin on 6-Way plug wired to 12V power, there are two industry standards
  • Includes: 4 Hy-Power diodes; 30' long, 4-wire harness; wire connectors; cable ties; 1 ring terminal; 3' long plastic loom, 8 ft coiled cord, Ford Fiesta mounting bracket, and socket
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Diode Max amperage: 85 amps
  • Diode Max voltage: 24 volts
  • Coiled cord max length: 8'
  • Coiled cord retracted length: 15"


Note: For applications that have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights. A wiring converter (118158 - sold separately) and 2 additional diodes (RM-792) will be needed if you want to retain separate turn and brake signals.


Separate vs. Combined Lighting Systems

Some automobiles operate on a 3-wire system, wherein the brake signal and the turn signals travel along different wires to illuminate different lights. (Typically, these Ford Fiestas have amber turn signals.) This is referred to as a "separate lighting system". When you hook up for flat towing using this kit, your towed car's lighting system will operate in a combined fashion regardless of whether it typically has combined or separate lighting. This means that the brake and turn signals sent by your RV to your towed car will be carried on a single wire. As a result, your car's brake lights will do the flashing for the turn signals. Your Ford Fiesta will still function as designed when not hooked up to your RV.

Do You Need a Brake Light Relay?

Because this kit wires your Ford Fiesta as a combined system, a brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if you use a supplemental braking system with your towing setup. A supplemental braking system depresses the brake pedal in your towed car every time you apply the brakes in your RV. So, if your towed car's brake lights illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed and the engine is off - as is the case when towing - then you need to install a relay to ensure that the lights on your towed car always act in accordance with the signals sent by your RV via the wiring harness. Without a relay, the brake signal from your towed car will override the turn signal sent by your RV when you slow down to make turns, creating a potential hazard.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-15267 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the RoadMaster diode seven-wire to six-wire flexo coil wiring kit. Now, this will let your wire your vehicle to accept your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights for flat towing. This will wire the tow car as a combined system so that your brake and turn signals will travel along the same wire. It will also prevent electrical feedback in the damage it can cause to your vehicle's electrical components. The diodes right here use a powder-coated aluminum case, which is corrosion resistant. They provide protection from the elements. Now, if this kit is used with supplemental braking system, it may require a brake light relay, part number RM-88400.

We do sell that separately on our website. The flexo coil cord right here is resistant to water, oil, chemicals, has silicone-injected plugs to help prevent corrosion. The center pin on the six-way plug, it can be wired two different ways. This one happens to be wired as a 12-volt power center pin. It includes everything shown here on the table. Includes the four high-power diodes, the 30-foot long, four-wire harness, all the wire connectors you'll need and cable ties, a nice three-foot long plastic loom to put around the wiring.

This cord right here is an eight-foot coiled cord, and it comes with a vehicle socket, the six-pin socket right here and the mounting bracket for that. All these parts are made in the USA and also covered with a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything. A few specs on this kit: The diode max. amperage is 85 amps. The diode max. voltage is 24 volts, and we mentioned the coil cord length is eight-foot, and when it's totally extended out, it's 15 foot.

One last note on this kit. For applications that'll have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights, so you would need to get a wiring converter, which is part number 118158, and two additional diodes, which are part number RM792. Those will be needed if you want to retain separate turn and brake signals. That should do it for the review on the RoadMaster diode seven-wire to six-wire flexo coil wiring kit.

I ordered an entire setup to flat tow my Subaru with my RV. Having never done this before I was nervous about missing something I might need. etrailer made it very easy when I called them on the phone. I told them what I was trying to do and they made sure I had everything needed to complete the job. I was given a name and phone number to call the same person if I had any issues. When one of the boxes was opened it was missing two pins from the manufacturer. A quick phone call and they had them in the mail in a matter of hours. This kind of personalized service is missing in our ever changing world. It was a pleasant surprise to find it here. Great Job etrailer. I will favorably recommend to everyone. 493275

Towbar wiring system arrived within 4 days of placing my order. This 7 to 6 wire system is an upgrade to the simpler 4 wire plugs I've used in the past and will allow me to add on a battery charge line or brake system later on. The demonstration video was indispensable in hooking up the wiring and diodes. Though running and connecting the wiring does take longer than a 10 minute video. Now I can tow my 2016 Jeep Wrangler behind my RV. 444983

The wiring kit included all the parts listed and the video was most helpful with the installation. The installation went fairly easy until I got to the portion of running the brown wire from one taillight to the other taillight. The brown wire was not long enough. I had to splice another piece of wire on to the brown wire to make it longer. etrailer should consider making the length of included wire approximately 3 feet longer. That would have helped a lot with the installation. Also include a longer piece of the split protective plastic. Other than those two issues, I am satisfied with the product. 459131

This product is incomplete. 4 feet more wire and five wires instead of 4 wires. The 4 wires are at least 4 feet short requiring you to purchase more from a local hardware store. This kit also does not combine the brake and turn signal requiring an additional wire. DO NOT be fooled by this kit. If you have a supplemental brake They want you to buy another kit that is impossible to install on the brake switch under the dash. I just added two relays at each taillight to keep the motorhome brake power from mixing with the Explorer power. Very simple and everything is easy to access. 519554

Overall this would be a five star review except for two issues. One being the wire provided was not 30 ft but was closer to 25 ft as I checked before using. I wired the same as the great etrailer video for my vehicle Cadillac SRX and ended up short. Fortunately I had additional wire and was able to complete the run. Secondly, the female spade connectors used on the diodes needed to be tightened as they were not very tight as provided by Roadmaster. These were all Roadmaster issues and of not fault of etrailer. Everything else looked of good quality. 428886

Everything installed without any issues. I'm very particular so it took 2 days to complete everything. I'm sure a pro could do it much faster. Have towed the 4" lifted (and loaded) Jeep accross the Rockies about 6 times and everything is working perfectly!! Very happy camper!! 301003

Excellent company. Great communication, fast shipping and the products worked perfectly. I had some trouble installing this to my rear brakes, but that was my own fault. I didn't realize that the brake lights are grounded when they are mounted to the Jeep. So I kept testing the lights once they were hooked up, however they weren't mounted back on the Jeep. It wasn't until everything was mounted back on that it all worked without any issues. 305606

I like the coiled cable in RM-15267 At one time I owned an Airstream travel trailer that had a tow cable. The Airstream did not have a coiled cable and I had to tie it up with bungy cords to still allow flexibility while traveling. That lasted for one season and the bungy cords stretched out and the cable started touching the road, scraping off the insulation! The coiled cable in the RM-15267 prevents the cable from dragging on the road! 446459

My son and I really appreciate everyone at etrailer.com! When I emailed you awhile ago, Jameson C. answered with everything we would need to hook up my RAV4 to our motorhome.

He has watched your videos and read your instructions and the installation wasn't that difficult. Thank you for all your help! 414621

I purchased this Roadmaster wiring kit one year ago to tow my Honda CR-V. I had it installed at Camping World. It is fast and easy to attach toad to RV. Very good quality. One thing I found helpful was to use a silicon spray on plug ends and tow bar pins as this facilitates unhooking. It was a few dollars more than others but you get what you pay for. I would definitely recommend this product to others 464039

This Kit worked on the Corolla IM. It also allows for battery charge cable and the brake wire. Plenty of room to install components in the rear. I chose to locate the diode packs in the spare tire compartment for ease of service. A second diode pack is required if you want turn signals to operate from the car when towing a trailer. Only park and brake available. Perfect kit for a motorcoach dingy. 468563

The connection points for this adapter are behind the driver's side tail lights. Then you will want to use the 7-Pole and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Sockets w/ Mounting Bracket and Wiring - Vehicle End # HM40975-11998 to hardwire to that 4-way. Next, you will want to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit for 2, 4, 6, and 8 Brake Electric Trailer...

  • Recommended Complete Flat Tow System For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With 2017 Thor Freedom Elite
  • For your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521448-5. This base plate system should be installed using Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420. For your tow bar I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights # RM-676. This has the safety cables, and a wiring connector integrated into the tow bar system. The LED's give you more visibility when towing your Jeep. For a more economical tow bar...

  • Why Does Vehicle Battery Have to Be Disconnected to Flat Tow
  • When flat towing a vehicle you have to go by what is listed in the owners manual of the vehicle as the proper process otherwise you might damage something or end up being a danger to other motorists. Most likely you have to disconnect the battery of your vehicle so that the battery does not drain while you are flat towing it. Since the front wheels of a vehicle have to be unlocked and be able to be turned you will end up having the key of the vehicle turned on to accomplish this. Well...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ5 and EZ4 Base Plates For 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • The difference between the EZ4 Base Plate kit part # RM-521448-4 and the EZ5 kit # RM-521448-5 is that the EZ4 uses twist-lock drawbars while the EZ5 uses drawbars held in place by pins and doesn't require the use of a crossbar. I would go with the EZ5 if it were me since not having to use the crossbar is just one less thing to worry about. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk I recommend the Blue OX Base Plate Kit # BX1136. All base plates for your Cherokee will require about the same amount of trimming. I've attached a video of the install on a 2015 Cherokee you may find helpful. You should know that your vehicle may have Mortorq fasteners that require a special bit from Snap-On to remove. I recommend going with the SMI Air Force One # SM99243 for your supplemental braking system. The wireless systems will work but...

  • Recommendations for Towing a 2017 Fiat 500 Behind a Motorhome
  • If you have the automatic transmission, then your 2017 Fiat 500 FWD must be towed using a tow dolly like # RM-2050-1. This is due to the transmission design style to prevent damage. If you have the manual 5 speed, you can tow it as it with a speed restriction of 65 mph. If you have the manual 5 speed transmission, I recommend the following: *Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 522013-1A *Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520 *Safety...

  • What Parts Are Needed To Tow A 2003 Jeep Liberty With Blue Ox Tow Bar Behind a Motor Home
  • To flat tow a vehicle, you would need a tow bar, base plates that mount to the vehicle and provide an attachment point for the tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution and a supplemental braking system. The base plates I would recommend for your 2003 Jeep Liberty would be the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1119. This kit has hidden reinforcements and the removable arm brackets that provide a clean, unobtrusive look when the Jeep is not being towed. This kit will work on Jeeps with...

  • Recommended Tow Bar for Use in Flat Recreational Towing a 2017 Fiat 500
  • I looked up a copy of the owner's manual for your 2017 Fiat 500 online and it looks like you can flat tow your Fiat as long as it has a manual transmission otherwise a tow dolly must be used. Let me know if this is the case and I can make a recommendation for you. To choose the correct tow bar you first need a base plate kit. I recommend going with a Blue Ox kit like part # BX2805 if you have an Abarth or the kit # BX2801 if you have the Lounge or Pop. Once the base plate kit is installed...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 Behind a Winnebago Tour
  • The Blue Ox AutoStop is compatible with the Aladdin to bar. However, we don't recommend the AutoStop for you. It's not near as reliable for braking as other systems like the Blue Ox Patriot II # BRK2016. The Patriot is one of the most popular supplemental braking systems we carry. To install it you'll need a 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332 in your truck. You'll also need the Brake-Lite Relay # RM-88400 to keep the truck's lights from overriding the Winnebago's. To power the truck's...

  • I completely understand how you feel. Flat towing a vehicle can seem overwhelming but I am happy to walk you through the parts you will need.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Chevy Equinox Behind an RV
  • You are correct about active air shutters; they are motorized. Since your 2017 Chevy Equinox does not have them or adaptive cruise control you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1689. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar is rated for up to 6,500 pounds and it comes with safety cables. For lighting I recommend the diode kit # RM-15267. It also comes with a coiled umbilical and...

I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • For your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD you would want the Roadmaster Base Plate kit part # RM-3176-3 which is a confirmed fit and would work well with your Blackhawk tow bar # RM-422. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight...

  • Flat Towing Setup For 2017 Jeep Cherokee
  • He is giving you the information he knows, and isn't incorrect...but is incomplete. There are limits to the battery and that can cause issues, where the manual doesn't have that issue. However, there are many wiring kits, like the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 that will allow you the features to charge your battery while you drive so you are not limited in your hours of towing based on battery. There is a wiring tech bulletin 68321424AB from Jeep...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade Behind an RV
  • I'm glad you asked because there are several subtle things to consider and other not so subtle things when flat towing a vehicle. The first place to start is the vehicle owner's manual. I checked the owner's manual online for your 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade. If you have a 4-wheel drive model it can be flat towed with 4 wheels down behind an RV. If it is a 2-wheel drive model it cannot be flat towed. If you have a model that can be flat towed then the first item needed is a set of...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • For your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk we have everything you'll need to flat tow it besides the harness that Chrysler mentioned. They did recently take off the market the old harness they recommended and last we heard are still in process of redesigning it like what they told you (as of June 2018). Even when it is available it won't be a part we'll carry though as it's a Mopar only product. We do have the base plate you'll need which is part # RM-521451-5. This would work well with our...
