What's the easiest way to wire my 2000 Astro for trailer lights? I was expecting a T-connector like all the trucks I've had but no such luck with the van.

The easiest way to do it is to do what we did.... Let the dealer do it.

We also have an astro. Neither of us are good with stuff like that, so we just brought it in, and they did everything. Wish I could actually help. Sorry.

Well, I finally found the kit I was looking for. It's like all my old (pre-80's) trucks that have to be wired in instead of plugs like all the (other) new vehicles. $15 and 20 mins and I'll be wired!

Glad you figured it out. Too bad it had nothing to do with any of us here, huh. Hang around long enough though, and you will sure learn something. I know I have.

By the way, for future reference, the Astro is already wired for everything. The wires are even marked already. The harness is folded under the jack in the storage compartment. All you have to do is splice whatever connector you have into the correct wires. It even has two additional aux 12v wires wired in!
