    Question help needed!! please

    hey guys sorry if this is in the wrong bit but just wanted to know wether i have a traction control wiring loom already in my car ??

    im going to order a switch and the surround to fit the button to but just wanted to know if i have the wiring already there as i have traction control !!

    i have a 2001 51 reg astra coupe bertone 2.2i 16v

    the website says the loom should have a blue end to it ? is this right and i have checked under where it should be and i only have a green and a black wich i may think is for heated seats?? but maybe wrong .

    any help would save me money probably so cheers

    many thanks lee

    I'd say that you wouldn't mate.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Get the lot from LMF mate, i did it the other day
    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=161043

    The loom is only about £13 with VAT. For that price you may as well buy it, as comes with proper connector, earth ring, pin to fit into the multiplug etc.

    Yeah LMF can get you any Vauxhall parts and will normally be slightly cheaper

    Cost me about £32 for the swtich, loom, dash panel and p+p

    No its very straight forward mate. The how-to guide is pretty good so hard to elaborate on it.

    Really is just a case of push wiring into engine bay, connect pin into multiplug, earth the ring.
    Then back in the car remove the ash tray and traction control panel, pull the wiring through the back of the dash (there is a big gap in the side by the clutch pedal). Fit the TC switch into panel, fit wiring connector to it, put dash back together and test

    If you have any specific questions post them up, I only did it yesterday so is still fresh in my mind
