I have a 2017 453 model that I use to pull a Very Small utility trailer from time to time. The trailer has normal light bulbs, NO LEDs etc and the trailer lights and turn signals work great when hooked up to other vehicles. I have a
CURT 56130 Non-Powered 3-to-2-Wire Splice-in Trailer Tail Light Converter, 4-Pin Wiring Harness that is needed so that I can have trailer lights, brake and turn signals. Problem is that when I turn either the left or right turn signals on, the car and trailer turn signals will flash one time and quit flashing. If I unplug the trailer to car harness plug, shut the car off and turn it back on, the car turn signals work fine. They just don't work when the trailer is hooked up. Back in the day with older vehicles, we would install a HEAVY DUTY turn signal flasher and everything worked fine. I'm not familiar with the SMART turn signal electronics. I don't have a shop manual. Question is how to fix this, is the flasher/relay etc something that can be replaced, upgraded or is it built into the computer and can't be tampered with. Also does anyone know the location of the turn signal flasher. Any help would be great. Thanks
