Wiring Color Codes

Postby Rennwagen1 on Nov Tue 28, 2006 2:15 pm

In case anyone is needing them, I have access to the wiring for stereos and body wiring for remote starters, etc. I also have a Bentley manuals for MK1, Mk2, MK3 if you need anything more in depth. I am also pretty good at figuring out wiring conundrums, if you have something wierd going on. Just putting it out there for you guys!

heh.....

i've been battleing some wireing issues with not only the brown rabbit, but also the new rocco.

yes i do have a bentley, and yes it is my bible.

but im really starting to hate this stupid MK1 wiring. all of my german mk1's have had issues, and its becoming a common thing.

so i guess my real question is has anyone ever rebuild or built a harnass from scratch?. it really dosnt seem that hard but i would still need a ton of wires and some generic fuze box. could i still use all the plugs from the old harness like at the wiper stalks? and things such as the head light switch, rear defoger, and hazards?

TIA!

Why are you wanting to build a harness form scratch? I am sure that you are having some electrical problems, but that may be a bit drastic, unless you are wanting to build a purpose built car. I have an 80 rabbit that I removed all the factory wiring from, but I used a Painless Wiring Universal 12-curcuit street legal race car harness for mine. H/l, T/L T/S wipers and the rest of the basics, but nothing like heat, AC, stereo, or an "creature comforts" I think that migh tbe more what you are looking for, instead of trying to build your own. The PW kits can be spendy, but every wire is labeled and it comes wiht a fuse box and you can of course solder your factory ends on to the wires(in fact you kinda have to, to make things work). The install is pretty srtaight forward and the instructions are pretty good (you will have to make some changes for your application of course) Anyway, that is just my .02. LMK if you have any questions. ALso, I have access to the PW Kits if you end up needing one.

If you are ever in Misssoula, and want to see the rabbit, I can show you how I wired the car, what ends I saved, what I had to solder in, etc...

Yeah, LMK when you are coming over, always wanting to put faces with SN, ya know? YOU may even discover something in my rabbit hutch that you can't live without! I decided to stop hoarding everything I can get my hands on, and sell what I don't need specifically for my projects, I am running out of room......

Aeron, can you explain why (in the Passat) my right blinker works only when I have the lights off? Left works fine no matter what. There's a wiring conundrum for ya... :p

Does the parking light work? I can't remember if the parking light and turn signal are in the same housing in that car. Does the rear right turn signal work? Can we nail this down to one corner of the car? I need some more info, man!! :paranoid:

I find the Bently is awesome for wiring diagrams.. They are so easy to understand. Everyone else says they are confusing as hell... Dunno what they are talking about. :p

Ok, so detail it is. Light switch on the left by the vent - 3 position: on, parking, off - turn stalk on the column. Car has no MFA.

Light switch in the off position - left works (F&R), right works (F&R) with a fast blink (wrong bulb I believe in the right front) and all hazard lights blink (F&R). Light switch in the parking light position - left works (F&R), right does not blink (F&R), relay does not click, only left hazards blink (F&R). Same with the light switch in the full on position. Parking lights work, but like I said I think the right side front has the wrong bulb because of the fast blink.

I changed the turn stalk and now the right will blink, but only with the light switch in the off position. Checked all fuses, and they look fine. Relays I'm not too sure about, and the light switch seems fine.

Does that help?
