Anyone know if the beepy relay has to work for the mot on a car with 13 pin towing electrics? I took my beepy relay out as it was annoying me, it's due it's not next month so want to know if I need to put it back!

That's interesting, it states that no tests will be undertaken on the electrics yet I've known test stations with plug in boxes Confused

That is just for the tow bar introduced in 2009 not the latest one where 13 pin sockets will be tested but not 7 pin

I've heard of problems with dodgy test equipment that MOT stations are using which is failing cars wrongly... but that's a different story Smile

Agreed, apologies. This is the up to date info. As Xpajun says, only 13pin sockets are tested.

The bad thing is, it is probably the 7 pin that'll fail every time while the 13 pin keeps going Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
