The trailer socket at the back of the vehicle is the main connection for this system and should be checked for dirt and corrosion. Also, the system is on a fused circuit where fuses can pop to prevent circuit overload. I would suggest having a reputable mobile mechanic come to your home or business to check the fuses, wiring and bulbs front to back for failures with a thorough inspection of this electrical system.
