I have a 2020 Niro HEV with a tow bar and wiring system fitted by the supplying dealer.

Due to a problem today with one of the caravan indicators not working It appears that there is no internal sound or dash warning that this is happening, dispite this being a legal requirement. Has this been missed or has the dealer not completed the wiring correctly?

Allegedly mine was the first current Niro fitted with the towing electrics and was overseen by a Kia Technical manager.

You should find that if an indicator lamp on the caravan or trailer fails the direction lamp on the dash should flash at double speed, just the same as if one on the vehicle has failed. This has met regulations for years.

And that is exactly what doesn't happen.

Hi Llanigraham

We can confirm there should be a visual signal and a buzzer sound in the event of a bulb failure. Please PM us with the reg and dealer name so we can look into the parts that were fitted.
