    Default Detachable Rear Tow Bar

    Hi

    Had a Bink's detachable towbar fitted to my Vectra Elite Estate, it all works ok including the interlock to prevent the electric rear tailgate opening when socket is activated. It had the Vauxhall connection kit fitted.
    Do i need to get Tech2 to activate the buzzer and the dashboard indication

    Cheers

    There is not a buzzer or dash indication on Vauxhall's electrics.

    According to the handbook there is a dash light.

    Trailer turn signal lamp
    Control indicator flashes in time with turn signal lamps when towing.
    Does not flash if a turn signal lamp on the towing vehicle or trailer fails.

    I have had a Vauxhall electrics on an 04, 06, 56 and 57 plate Vectra's/Signums. I wouldn't read too much into what the hand book states, they don't have a dash indicator.

    It always used to be the law that the driver had to be advised by warning light that turn signals are working ok??
    Can remember back in olden times there was an extra pilot light fitted on dashboard
    There was on the 3 Austin Princesses I had . Now that dates me.

    Your right Keefy it is law, but the Vauxhall electrics don't do it.

    Dosen't the Vectra do it through the existing light check circuit, i.e the light bulb illuminates on the dash then the GID displays which bulb is at fault?

    It was part of the cost cutting measures implimented by VX to remove the indicator, you'll find that most of the pre-facelifts DO have the indicator
