    I used a relay bypass kit as it came free with towbar and it just scotch locks into back light.
    But you can buy the proper vxl harness that plugs into rear fuse box for £70-£100 irrc?

    If you only want to use a single socket set up you could wire the side lights to the No plate lamp supply and the brake lights to the centre brake light supply(it will have to be that way owing to the way the tail lights and brake lights work) and the indicators to indicator supply on each side.

    TBH if you have bulb failure warning you'd be better off with the genuine vx electrics as it will warn you of blown bulbs on the trailer and disable park pilot if fitted. It's only about 50 quid and saves hacking into wiring

    On my Astra i got a kit from towsure in sheffield.

    Be carefull with scoth locks as the vauxhalls have the can bus wiring and joining a wire in can play havoc with it's system.

    You got it for £30 notes im sure you can stump the rest for the dedicated wiring cheaper than a burnt out vectra.

    I fitted mine the other day using the 7 way bypass box you can get them on ebay for £13-£30.That deals with the bulb failure problem.Then i just cut in to the brakes the indicators and the side lights.I never bothered with the reverse or fog as its only a small trailor i have .By the way you dont need to take off the bumper as stated on the how to.You can do it with it still on.
