The reset procedure is required if the tow ball can neither fully deploy or stow.

The requirement for a reset procedure is confirmed if all the following occur:

  • The touchscreen displays a message telling the user to reset the system.

  • The button LED in the loadspace flashes quickly.

  • An audible tone sounds.

To reset the deployable tow ball press the loadspace button. The audible tone stops. See DEPLOYABLE TOW BALL OPERATION.


If the problem persists, consult a retailer/authorised repairer. Do not tow a trailer with the tow ball partially deployed. Serious injury or death may result.
