I have a tow bar mounted Thule 3 bike carrier. I bought it used and the PO had converted it from 7 pin to 13 so when I got my tow bar installed I had a 13 pin socket installed.
Long story short all lights and indicators are working on the Thule and on the car but when my indicators are on there is a beep at the same frequency as the indicators. Is this a design feature or a warning?
Is it there to tell you if the trailer is connected? I.e. if the beeping stops, you know it’s become disconnected or a bulb has blown?
Also acts as a reminder when you are signalling that you have something hanging off the tow bar
Cheers @dancing james for confirming it's a feature, it seemed like that but I was concerned it was a warning sound to alert me to an current overload/faulty connection.
@Jonny69 actually I wonder if it well serve that function i.e. if the bulb blows then it will not beep.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
