    Default Towing a beach buggy behind a 2017 Hilux.

    When towing a trailer the lights work fine. When the Beach buggy with A frame is hooked up the lights of the hilux work fine but when the auto on lights of the hilux step in the buggy headlights come on and flicker when the indicator is used.

    First time posting here. Trying to assist a neighbour.

    Ok, found a dodgy connection on the buggy. Sorted same and now the lights are working.

    When I towed my beach buggy, I used a boat trailer light board, I found the beach buggy electrical system always problematic and gave me endless towing problems when connected to the Bakkie. But worked fine on their own battery??
