TRAILER ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

NOTES

Only connect approved electrical circuits, which are in good condition, to the vehicle's tow hitch receiver socket. Failure to do so may result in damage, or affect the correct operation of the vehicle's electrical systems.

NOTES

Only use electrical equipment that requires a 12-volt supply from the vehicle.

When a trailer's electrical connection is made and the vehicle’s turn signals are used, the trailer warning indicator flashes in time with the turn signals. See TRAILER TURN SIGNALS (GREEN).

In the event that the vehicle's turn signals are used and the symbol does not flash, check the trailer's electrical connection. Take appropriate action to make sure that the trailer's turn signals are functioning correctly.

The information in the following table helps to confirm if a trailer or a lighting board is compatible for use with this vehicle. If these conditions are not met, the vehicle will not detect the electrical connection of a trailer or a lighting board.
