Assuming that the 850 works in the same way as the slighter later V70, this
is not right.
The indicators are not wired via the bulb failure device, so you can tap
into the cable where it goes to the lighting cluster. You don't need a
bleeper in the boot - the dashboard lamp is sufficient confirmation that the
trailer lights are flashing. The flasher unit senses that it's flashing 3
lamps rather than 2 (plus side repeaters etc.) and causes the dashboard
trailer lamp to flash.
