As soon as I told them the veh and wiring I was installing, they said don't install the wiring kit BX8848 as we found out it doesn't work in that car. I asked for the replacement and they said at this time there is none. They removed this wiring kit on Friday for use in this Veh. Great, I am out
2 hours of labor and maybe I won't be able to return the wiring harness as part of it is already installed in the car. I was told to use the light kit you attach to the outside of the veh. I won't do that as I don't want scratches. I will find out what the problem is and get Blueox to make good on my expense so far.

Thought I would just pass on what I have learned so others don't find themselves
with the same problem.
My installer ran wiring to the 4 pin hitch plug and we plug it into the light bar built to slide into the hitch receiver.

Even with a wiring harness available he doesn't like to mess with the existing vh wiring. He says with all the electronics you can have issues.
