Trailer Wiring on EB2
My EB2 wagon started suffering with that fast flashing indicator problem. I checked all the globes etc and they were working fine. What I found was when I moved the trailer connector around the problem was fixed. Eventually I rewired it but alas now it's a permanent problem.
On close inspection I found that the old connector plug had a trace earth connection to the indicator pins when the flap was closed. So, after blowing many fuses I found that a very thin wire connected in the right way solves the problem. That worked for a while until I had a small electrical fire :oo1:
Now, I can't get it to work properly and am driving around with the trailer harness removed completely. However, both indicators still flash way too fast. Ford spares will take two days to get a new trailer harness P/N ED13K447B $65, IF it's available.
Is there a quick fix? Is the flasher can specially set up or something? I thought that by removing the trailer wiring altogether and hooking upo the standard harnesses all should work A1.
