Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Will my LinkaBlinka signals activate other LinkaBlinka units when in range?
No. The LinkaBlinka individual sets are uniquely paired so that when your signal is sent from the trailer connector plug, only your set can receive a signal.
Q: How do I know if they are working or if they are running low on power?
The AMM module inside your car (Plugged into your 12v supply) will keep you well informed. When any of the signalling modules are running low on power it will give you a series of beeps to alert you to recharge in the next 2 hours approx.
If any signal becomes week, a unit gets damaged or falls off your trailer losing signal, an alarm will go off alerting you to stop and check your lights. This is better than the usual wired system.
Q: How can I recharge the units?
Each of the modules has a waterproof charging point on the rear of the module. You can charge from your car via USB, from home through 240V power point or via a 12v socket with a USB adaptor.
Charging is quick. Around 30 minutes per unit is enough to get you many days of powered driving.
Q: What are my options if I break any one particular module? Can I buy replacement individual parts?
You sure can. If you break any one or more of the units you can still use your set. Simply order a replacement module. When you receive it, you must then pair the new set. This is done by placing the units within a few meters of each other and pressing a pin into the side of the AMM module beside the display screen and waiting for the pairing OK notice to appear on screen. Your new set is then ready to go.
Q: Will LinkaBlinka work on vehicles fitted with electric brake controllers?
Yes, we have made sure the design allows it to be used with vehicles fitted with electric brake controllers.
Q: Will LinkaBlinka work with 24V systems?
No. LinkaBlinka is only suitable for 12V systems. Later designs may explore a design to suit this market.
Q: How do I get them on and off to recharge the units?
Each of the units are designed to easily clip on and off with just one hand. Simply lift the thumb lug and the units will unlock and lift off. To replace simply align the locator lugs and push it on until it snaps into place.
Q: What if I don’t have a 7-pin flat trailer connector on my car?
No Issue, just get a adaptor and away you go.
Q: How Can I be sure that the left and right blinker don’t get put on the incorrect side?
When the left and right base plates have been mounted correctly you cannot mix up the orientation as the connection lug spacings are different widths on the left and right. The left base plate will only align and connect to the corresponding left indicator. The same is the case for the right indicator.
