Amarok towing lights problem
« on: June 29, 2018, 01:50:47 pm »
My Amarok has started playing up when towing, I get the signal that a light is out and the left indicator flashes fast on the dash. The left indicator on the trailer will not signal at all but the other lights all work fine. I have tried other trailers and it is the same problem, my trailer is new and not Led.

I also have another issue that could be related, sometimes the rear doors left or right but not both at the same time will not unlock. This started happening at the same time as the trailer problems. I have checked the fuses and canít find anything wrong with them.

Thanks

I get the bulb out on one trailer I tow (but everything works fine), bulb out and fast flash on another, and perfect on the third. It's the same every time so I figure it's the way the lights are wired (bad earth) on each individual trailer. The fact that one trailer is perfect, leads me to believe there isn't anything wrong with the amarok wiring. Only a rather sensitive bulb out detection.

Thanks, I will try add another earth to the trailer and see if that helps.
