Went to change socket on Isuzu Pickup and came across this inside the 7 pin socket, wouldn’t fit into the replacement I purchased. What is it ???
Thanks

Our Isuzu Trooper has something similar to turn off the rear fog with a trailer on (as mentioned above) - only found it when trying to get the fogs working for an mot test...

As above, it is either or both to disable teh fog lights or reversing sensors.
Chuck it away and fit a small switch somewhere easy to get to. When you hook a trailer up, acticate the switch.
It will make it a lot easier to replace in the future.

That's what I have, fitted as standard, problem being if you forget to turn it back on then potentially you back into something as you rely on the sensors.

That's like a local fella who wanted to test the front parking sensors on his new motor, he drove up to the fence, then drove into the fence, then got out & realized there were none fitted...

Is it the fog light cutout, some vehicles have it so when the trailer is in use fogs on vehicles don't work to save shining on the front of the trailer?
In the good old days yes. Nowadays it does that via the BCU, often diables rear park sensors, and it also tells the vehicle it's towing, so change throttle mapping, and in the case of an auto, to change shift points.
