    I've just fitted my electrics - plug in kind, and there doesnt seem to be any indication the electrics are working when towing - is this normal? - in my disco there was a little green flashing car that came up. no beeping either. Do i need to do anything - help

    Many thanks

    When I recently fitted my towbar electrics (also plug in kit), it came with a replacement flasher relay that I substituted for the original. The new relay powers the dash trailer tell-tale as well.

    If I remember correctly, the flasher relay is second one in from the right in the fuse box located in drivers side glovebox. The uprated one has 4 pins, the standard one, three.

    If you didn't get one in your kit, I know you can get one from Land Rover, or possibly Halfords - do a search on here I am sure other people have suggested where the cheapest source is in the past.

    Hope this helps.

    Many thanks for the fast response - if anyone has the relay ref number I'd appriciate it.

    however I did like the other flasher above - far more interesting than mine

    Thanks again...
