If the above problem is identified, one possible cause may be a defective electronic control unit for the electrically-powered swivel tow bar.
In order to exclude other causes of malfunction, the surrounding area in the vicinity of the tow bar must be visually inspected for other kinds of damage and then repaired if necessary.
If no further errors can be detected, then the control unit has to be replaced.
