Q7 trailer hook up electrical problems interconnectivity

My Q7 has a towing package. I nneded to hook up a trailer and at the dealer I purchase the 7-pin connector and they told me I needed to buy an adapter from 7-pin to 4 flat connector. When Ipurchased and connected the adapter and hook up the trailer the lights on the trailer flick and the Q7 tell me that the lights are not connected. I pulled up my F-150 and connected the trailer and everything works well.
What is the problem with the Q7 and trailer hitch?

Check your ground wire on the trailer. I have the 7-pin hitch and use the same 7-pin to 4-flat pin connector you have and my utility trailer lights work fine.
