turns out the wiring harness tapped into the brake wire in connector X3, pin 11. this cheesed off the SAM as I think the brake and tail lights are one wire. so the sam shut down everything.
remove this - let the system reboot. harness has a canbus interface which deals with the brake light...
Back again. Got a sprinter now. 2007 with startship mileage.

Fitted towbar, really easy, except the wiring. I paid extra for a kit specific to the sprinter...

found three boxes of cuban cigars, one unopened, from my grandfather (who died in 1995 aged 80).
He was quite wealthy, and wouldnt have bought rubbish.
