Trailer Wiring?

I just finished wiring up a Westfalia trailer harness to my 2014 Renault Kangoo. Tail lights work, stop lights work, hazards work, turn signals DON'T work

When the indicators are switched on nothing at all happens, no not even the vehicle lights come on. I suspect this means I need to get it dealer coded? Is it possible that Bosch diagnostics can do the job, as that would be a lot cheaper (possibly free).

Thanks

In other news used a brand new torque wrench and snapped a M12 10.9 bolt! Apparently I should have stuck to my 15 year old no name wrench.

Re: Trailer Wiring?

I take it you've joined the indicator wires into the cars rear indicator lights?
Because the hazards work - it means the indicators should
Unless you managed to short something or do something else

Are you able to quick disconnect your unit/bypass relay/ what ever you've used and do the hazards then work?

Re: Trailer Wiring?

Tried it again today and it all works, other than hyper flash because I have LED tail lights. The LED lights work fine on older cars, but apparently Renault and no doubt others have decided that not enough impedance means a light out, even though it's not even possible to buy trailer lights with filament globes anymore.

Car parts shop wanted $30 for a pair of load resistors, even when you have a win you still loose
