    Led lights on trailer

    Hi all I have a caravan with led lights on it , does it matter if the green trailer light on dash does not come on when indicating or do I need to get the fix done. Thanks

    Do you have a D3 or D4?

    With a D3 you need a pulse buster to stop the caravan LEDs pulsing. The pulse buster will also then let the D3 know you are towing. This will illuminate the trailer icon when indicating, disable rear parking sensors & rear fog lights, disable automatic height adjustment when changing Terrain Response settings (Manual height selection still possible), and change the shift points on the gearbox.

    If you have a D4 you do not get the trailer LEDs pulsing so not totally necessary to do anything. But if you still want the D4 to know you are towing you’ll need resistors fitting to the trailer indicator wiring circuit.

    My solution on my D4 LED trailers

    Google "Linear Electronic Design" . The owner in Vic has a Disco 4 and is great to deal with.
