    Hi can anyone help us please?
    We have a Discovery 2 and since we towed our caravan back from holiday, all of the dashboard lights and rear drivers side lights have stopped working we have changed the all the rear bulbs? However still no joy, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks
    Matthew

    Have you looked at fuses, is your towing socket in good health?

    Hi there
    No all water tight, this is first problem we have had like this, we wondered if putting the electrical connector from the caravan to the cars tow bar incorrectly could be the cause?

    Hi there
    We have looked at fuses, but unsure of which fuse services the dashboard lights! (Sorry we are certainly not mechanically minded)!

    Ooops, never read your post, just the title.
    Looks like fuse 11 (10 amp) does the LH side and tail lights and trailer socket and
    fuse 33 (10 amp) does the RH side

    Fuses under the steering wheel

    When hooking up to a caravan make sure the power is off in the caravan, you have a switch that says car/van and you can also place the switch in the middle, it wants to be in the middle, then when hooking electrics to car make sure the car is switched off and don’t leave ignition on, hook it up and start the car and then go to the caravan and flick the switch to car. Otherwise it is very likely that you have blown quite a few fuses like what others have suggested.

    Hi there
    Thanks for taking the time, really kind. Would that fuse cater for the dashboard lights as well do you think?

    The fuse diagram posted above will help you, fuse 27 does instruments. Good luck

    Hi Guys
    Thanks everyone for your help, we replaced dash fuse but nothing happened so we replaced the RH side fuse, and both the dash lights and RH side rear lights now work???!! So both fuses had to be replaced for the dash lights to work.

    Brilliant, thanks again!

    Matthew
