Default Towbar electrics issue - 2001 V70

Hi.

Wondering if anyone can offer any advice?
When I have connected my caravan to my car, I cannot get the caravan indicators to work. No beeper in the car either.
I am 99% certain the fault is on the car, not the van.
Hoping it's something simple like a fuse (not sure which one to check as the fusebox in the boot is not labelled), as we are supposed to be going away on Thursday.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks

Has it got volvo electrics or after market and is it 2 7pins (grey and black sockets) or 13pin,

If its 13 then any MOT station should have a tester to check towbar electrics,

Also depending on age of caravan some towbar units don't like the newer LED lights that alot of new stuff has fitted

It's a single 7 pin, which I will be attempting to replace tomorrow.
The caravan is 20 years old, so no leds and I have tested it with a lightboard.
Thanks
