Only attach approved electrical connectors, which are in good condition, to the trailer socket.

The detachable tow ball's trailer socket should be manually deployed (2) and stowed (1), as illustrated.

The powered tow ball's trailer socket deploys and stows automatically with the powered tow ball.

When a trailer's electrical connection is made, the instrument panel's trailer warning indicator flashes, when the vehicle's direction indicators are operated. If the trailer warning indicator does not flash, check the trailer's electrical connection. Also check the operation of the trailer's direction indicators. See TRAILER DIRECTION INDICATORS (GREEN).
