    Default Indicator warning when towing

    Hi Chaps,

    Just fitted a tow bar with genuine vaux wiring kit/relay etc.
    My question is ....... Should I have a warning buzzer when indicating? Is it a legal requirement??
    Also, how do I know that my bulb detection system is working other than taking a bulb out of the trailer?

    I dont have a problem with the bulb out warning coming on so i prosume it is working correctly, will just have to take a bulb out on the trailer to see if it works.
    Everything else works fine ie. rear fog disengages on car and comes on on the trailer and my park assist sensors on the rear disengage when the trailer is connected.

    Unlikely that trailer lights will be covered by the bulb failure system.

    There should be an audible or visual sign that the trailer indicators are working, I think this is a legal requirement,
