    Default Illuminatiion For Ashtray

    Hoping someone can help.
    I am after illuminating the front ashtray seeing as tight old vauxhall did not do it. As you can see from the pic after removing the ashtray there is a connector on a grey and yellow wire. Do I use this to illuminate the ashtray and how? It has a power socket but no ciggie lighter. I am after a ciggie lighter too but so far no luck in finding a vauxhall one. Had a universal one in my missus rover a few years ago but it kept blowing the light fuse.



    P.S. I will get round to cleaning it one day

    Pre-facelift Vectras have cig lighters and illuminated ashtrays. The cig lighter has a bulb, and there's a clear panel in the end of the ashtray to allow that light through into the ashtray itself. I'll take a photo of my 2004 Elegance's ashtray if you like.

    Should be a relatively straight swap - I'm sure I've seen someone post pictures of when they did it.

    You could be right - I was going from memory in that I remembered the clear panel in the side of the removable ashtray bit.

    Had a root around under the ashtray and found another plug so went to a scrappy and found same plug with a light attached. Loking at another guys post showing his converted ashtray led I guessed it just clipped on. Found 3 of the lights which I got for nothing as they may not have worked. Was very pleased as they all worked. So that is the ashtray illuminated now. Also got a cig lighter but it did not fit, gap between the collar and the light was too shallow. Still not sure what the other connector is for though, the one with the grey/yellow wire.

    First pic shows the connector, second shows the light, third shows how they connect and the fourth shows them on the ashtray.
