LION (AUSTRALIA) CONSOLIDATED P/L—7 pin small-diameter trailer plug

Identifying features

Model no. LA076B

What are the defects?

The wiring instructions were incorrect in that they stated that terminal 5 (for the trailer service brake) should be connected to the black wire (reversing signal), rather than the blue wire.

What are the hazards?

If wired in accordance with the instructions, the trailer braking system would not function, possibly causing loss of control of the trailer. (The brakes would activate when reversing the trailer instead.)

What should consumers do?

Refer to Lion's website for the correct wiring instructions: http://lionaust.com.au/TRAILER_PLUGS__BASES.html
