Does anyone have the wiring connector location or pinout for trailer lighting converter box? Is it the 4 pin plug above the drivers side battery taped to the loom?

Ended up using this:

http://curtmfg.com/part/59190

To wire up a four flat trailer plug on the car. Ignore the 3 wire to 2 wire thing. On these cars you don't use the brake input. Honestly any converter would work. I'm not sure how tough the turn signal switch is so I'd recommend against wiring directly.

The wiring is located above the battery on the passenger side. Wire colors are standard GM (same as American trailer UL color coding). Yellow for left, green for right, brown for running lamps.

Seperated wires are the light signals.

Since you have added trailer wiring, I assume you have a trailer hitch. Do you have any pictures that were taken during the hitch installation, if my assumption is correct? I don't tow with a car much since I have an old 3/4" Ford for towing duty, but it is nice to have the ability to tow a light trailer.

There is a post on here and a better post on the G8 board with info and good photos.

I didn't bother with photos.
