First do you have a tow bar fitted ? If you do then first check the connections at the trailer plug, check the PDC controller (there is a connector black I think that lets the control system know the trailer is connected) The last is a check on the LCM for faults so a code read will be required, while reading the fault codes you could turn off the trailer light check.

Morning Dave,

Thanks for the info 👍🏻

Checked the trailer electrics plug under the bumper and loads of water came out so I guess that's gonna be my issue 🙄 

Cleaned and dried the plug and covered the cover and connections with a good helping of silicone grease so hopefully that has solved my issue.

Thanks for your continued help in getting to know this beast of a car
