Hiya Smithy

I fitted my Sovereign bar after I had bought the vehicle. The bar arrived, all shiny and new, in a box ... and the park light / indicator lights in the bar had exactly the same setup as you are describing ... just a length of wire.

There should be enough wire to run it up into the space behind the headlight assembly on each side. From there you need to find the park light wire and the appropriate side indicator wire - shave a bit of the insulation off with a razor blade and check it with a multimeter. When you have the right wire - expose some more of it with the razor blade and tin it with some solder - tin the end of the wire from the bullbar and join them ... then tape (and heatshrink tube) over the join. Do that for each indicator and each park light and Bob's your uncle.

Cheers

Do you have a Sovereign bullbar?
There is another plug on each side not used....should have the wiring connected via another plug & socket.
Are you sure he lights are not wired up?. Just blown globes?
