What Flat-Tow Wiring Kit Doesn't Require Drilling Or Splicing On A 2013 Fiat 500

Question:

I have a 2013 Fiat Abarth that I plan to flat tow. I am looking for a complete wiring kit solution that does not require drilling holes in the existing tail light assemblies. I also will use a Blue Ox Braking system in the Fiat toad. Which system should I use without cutting wires and too much corruption of the Fiats wiring? C63CR? RM-15267? RM-154? RM-15247? RM152-98146-7? RM152-1676-7? Not sure of the differences in these kits. Can you assist?

I recommend the Curt Towed-Vehicle RV Harness # C58911, it is a custom fit designed for the Fiat 500 and will plug into your factory wire harness without needing to splice wires.

Question:

One final point of clarification Is there a conflict in this system that the brake and turn signal lights are both using the one set of bulbs on the Toad (Fiat)? When I press my RV brakes- my blue Ox brake system in the Toad will simultaneously also step on the Fiat brake pedal- this will turn on both Fiat brake bulbs If I have the turn signals on at the same time- and both the turn and brakes use the same bulb - then will the Fiat show only the brake lights and negate the turn signal action? I guess the bottom line is - does this system share the same bulb for both brake and turn signals? Its just that I see RM-88400 system eliminates this problem....but I assume that problem does not exist and the conflict of the RV signal and the Toad actual brake activation signal does not exist with the recommended C58911 system? I really appreciate your help

You will be safe with this set up, as you mentioned there can be a problem with the signals going to the brake/blinker being overridden that would require the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-88400 but with the # C58911 you will be fine.
