    Default Electrical probs

    My 2008 Vectra C Estate has got some strange problems and I think they're connected:

    * My tail gate won't open, but I know the contact is fine as I've replaced it.
    * My Park-sensors only work intermiddently. The sensor engage just fine and the P-sensor-light comes on, but it seems like the sensors themselves don't activate.
    * There is a continues electrical "clicking" coming from the back of the tail lights.
    * When I last used the tow bar, the warning beep wouldn't stop, although everything seemed fine.

    I am currently suspecting the electrcals to the tow bar to be a problem, but do you guys have any ideas where to start searching for the fault(s)????

    Well if you're pretty certain the towbar electrics are a good candidate for the cause, my first point would be getting a meter on them and checking they're all wired up to what they should be. Depending on how it's all connected you could also consider disconnecting them and seeing how the faults are affected.

    If either approach points to nothing, it really is a matter of stage by stage isolating the 'known good' circuits.
