    Reading through the how-to, you should be looking for a brown wire.

    * MAY NOT APPLY *:
    Also according to the Haynes manual,
    Wires going to the TC switch should be Brown and Black/Red and Grey/Yellow

    So look for those colours in a plug.
    Hope that helps.

    There you go iceman_674.
    There are three wires out of the TC switch plug.



    A light grey, a brown and a brown and white.
    The plug as more light blue than shown in the pic.
    The plugs either side are for the heated seat switches.

    Hope that helps

    You can buy a loom off the shelf for fitting a TC switch to the Astra G. It comes with the pin and all the connectors. When I did my SRi Turbo I used pin 31 in the connector, not pin 25.

    I don't have the part number but I'm sure someone will come up with the part number. If you have that loom, all you need to do then is add the correct switch and trim panel. Because it is a genuine VXL part you will also maintain any warrant cover

    Traction control button - 90437527
    Dash panel. (Black, No heated seat switches) - 90437593
