    Default TOWBAR Question Vectra C

    Hi all, not sure if this should be here or technical, please feel free to correct me...

    I have a 2003 GSi. I have just fitted towbar, and wired in 7 way bypass relay. To complete the task I need a +12 Volt supply for the relay to deliver the current to the towbar lamps. Now, the point of the Bypass relay is to stop current being drawn from the delicate CAN bus wiring/electronics, so I need to feed a wire directly from the + on the battery....That could take a bit of planning and I would rather wire it to something closer/easier. Maybe a +12 Volt feed within the boot?

    Question.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a suitable wire in the boot (around the big panel on the left by the alarm sounder) that I can use that is not part of the CAN bus system in the boot area? It must be connected to the battery positive or not part of a current monitoring system as I want a good safe current feed for the towbar. This will in turn save me trying to feed in a permanent live from the battery as you do when fitting an amp.

    Cheers Guys

    There is a fuse for the towbar in the rear fuse box. You can get a dummy fuse that has a wire coming from it to used to feed the smart relay
