So have gone to buy a brand new trailer & couldn’t drive it away because the brake & indicator lights won’t activate
Applied a circuit tester on the end of the plug tail & the tester would flash on & off in unison with the indicator light flashing on & off, confirming that this power being sent from the car to the electrical pins of the plug. Tested with another brand new trailer on site - same problem.
Tesla phone service couldn’t solve after power cycling.
I briefly read online that is possibly due to a too low power draw & you can buy an adaptor to trick the car (into sending more power??)??
Any help/thoughts?
