ive bought an after market remote locking kit for my Mk3 Astra estate :)

i just have 3 questions as i have been told that most vauxhalls have "sort of the same wireing colours"... lol

i have removed the glove box ready to fit it and have already got the open and close wire colours

open = brown/white
close = brown/red

(1) what colour is the wire for the parking lights?

(2) are vauxhalls possitive or negative triggers for the remote locking?

(3) "trunk" release,,, (lol americans),, can this be set up on my car?

many many thans for reading my sad post :)

the main problem is i only have one wire for the parking light from the unit...

so connecting it to both indicators is a no no :(

so i need a single wire for the parking lights, or a single wire for the hazards

i think that i'd prefer the parking lights, but needs must,,

anyone?

and i have a haynes manual and its usless :(

either that or i am crap at reading wireing diagrams :(

or indicators but i only have one wire for them both,, i know its posible with the help of 2 relays,, but i am just wondering if its possible any other way?

Found this in a diffrent post :)

a) Either just connect it to the passenger side

b) Use 2 relays to do the job.

pin 30 of both to +12v
pin 85 of both to ground
pin 86 of both to the alarm wire
pin 87 of one to Left Ind
pin 87 of other to Right Ind


c) or get a relay from the passenger side of an omega to the left of the glovebox which will do this job in one relay
