    Pf Jones / Right Connections Towbar Wiring Kit

    Forum Key Rings
    Anyone have any experience with either of the above? I've wired my 7 pin kit from PF Jones in (no problem, very straightforward). All lights seem to work well. CAN data working perfectly (it extends comfort indicators from 3 to 6 when trailer connected) only issue in finding is there's no buzzer or light functioning when the indicators flash. Will ring manufacturer on Monday but I'm sat here trying to get to the bottom of it impatiently...

    just had a look at the fitting instructions and on very last page last section that there is different ways that the indication can work. have you tried plugging in to trailer then removing a bulb to see what happens.

    Hi chaps - thanks for all your help. I spoke to "Right Connections" (who manufacture the PF Jones Kit) - in short, it isn't designed to buzz. Apparantly it is acceptable for there to only be an indication when an indicator has failed - as opposed to when it's working. Interestingly after talking to them on the phone, I also found this on their website:

    https://www.rightconnections.co.uk/rear-mounted-buzzer/

    So, I think it's all working properly. I'll whip an indicator bulb out the trailer tonight - apparantly it should cause double-rate flashing of the indicators, to signify a broken bulb.

    Actaully makes sense to me - and saves having an annoying buzzer.

    Thanks for all your help with this, and the previous post I made on fitting the towbar itself
