    Default Should I have a trailer light....

    ....or not?

    I have just installed a westfalia tow bar with single electrics and the trailer module. When I have connected trailer/ caravan all the lights work fine but I have no driver indication that there is a trailer/ caravan connected. I was under the impression that its a legal requirement to either have a light on the dash or warning buzzer when indicating.

    Please can you tell me what you think......

    HI
    Tech2 is a software program that talk to the cars computers and it can turn programs on/off, fault reading and general programing
    you will need some-one with the software like you local vx dealers or if any-one on here has one in your area.
    vx will charge you around £50-£70

    The indicator is self that you are turning with somthing on the hitch... is actually a "small" tobar indicating, in the lower right hand of the dash.

    Im in stockton...

    ...from what I can gather I just need the tech 2 ing so I can have the dash light, seems a bit excessive as it will be, what about £40 for someone to plug a communicator in. I think I will just leave it as it is and hope I dont get pulled by a very switched on plod.
