Default Led trailer board lights blinking

Lads any idea how to rectify this on my X5. Heading to france and putting a trailer board on the back of bikes at rear. Never had a problem pulling trailers. I know it's cause the electrics of car send a signal through lights but is there a way to fix. No error coming up. Thks.

did you plug the trailer board into another car to see what it is doing?

You need to fit an inline resister. This will stop the filcker in the lights. In future you will have to buy CANBUS approved LED lights. Non CANBUS approved lights will work fine on older vehicles but the light won't appear on the dash to tell you are working is the only thing.

You can code out the cold and hot monitoring of the lights in question
