    Default Trailer with LED lights

    I have a trailer equipped with LED lights.
    Earlier, when I had an Opel Vectra B, the lights worked all right. Now I have a Opel Vectra C (2007) and with it became problems: lights do not work.
    The local dealer installed the trailer hitch, when I bought the car 04/2009. When I noticed the problem with the LED lights I took contact to the dealer and asked if it is possible to program the car for a trailer with LED lights. They said it is not possible. Then I took contact to GM Finland and asked for help. They don't have any solution.
    I have found LED ADAPTOR MODULEs for many cars but not for Opel (Vauxhall).
    What shall I do?

    Replace LED lights with normal bulb type? Probably easier to buy a new light board.

    I dont know if this will help but on Commercials pulling trailers with LEDs some have had to fit an in-line resistor to enable the truck ecu to reconize the led lamps.My only doubt is the fault is usually a warning light comes on in the truck to indicate a light is not working on the trailer,but they all are.
    Just a thought

    Add a resistor to the trailer lighting circuits so that the resistance/current is the same as conventional bulbs.
