Rear bike racks - no towbar, no external electric socket!



I've bought a Thule Raceway Bike rack, and just assumed it would be easy to attach an external lighting board.

Problem is, I don't have a tow bar or external connector socket. I've looked inside the luggage compartment, assuming there was one under the floor of the compartment, but can't find any suitable connector. Do I need some sort of kit? Or have I just wasted a load of money, or am I missing something obvious?

The lighting board I looked locally at has a 7 pin connector.

(Sorry if this is a really stupid question. I've not needed to do this before.

The attached image is the only socket connector I could find - it's at the rear left under the floor.

you could wire it in an fix to the car. or just build a 'jumper' link between the Grey socket you found and the 7pin socket.
