Talking sorry about the regurgitating an old post... But....

I'm trying to sort out some wiring in my swap.. This one is the most frightening of the lot , as it has to do with the k-line to my ecu! It appears that I am supposed to connect these gray/white wires (with brown plugs), but ALSO one brown/ white wire? Browns (in VWs) are usually some form of ground wire -just not in this instance? I'm dealing with a somewhat cut up harness here, and I don't have all the blocks. Everything here should be from a 96 passat...

Thanks,
Eric R.

ANother branch goes to a single pin brown connector that mates up to another brown connector that continues on with a brown and white wire heading to the instrument cluster (this is a mk3 tdi harness goiing to a mk3 tdi cluster but it's the same going to the passat cluster and harness (this looks right, but I'm not sure)



Then I'm left with the third branch of grey and white witt this white connector which I'll have to go back and look on the passat fuse box in the daylight to find where it conncected, but its the mystery of the moment...




Thanks again for all insights...

Turns out that the single brown/white wire off the Passat cluster harness is for the trunk indicator! Glad I didn't fry the ECU

Long time no post....been driving the GTD now and then. It lived at berg performance for a spell getting the cluster wiring resorted. Now I've got tach and speedo and MIL and turn indicators and temp and fuel level gauges working.

Just gotta sort out a glow plug code and brake sensor code and she will be legal!

I also ended up selling my Audi wagon to get a bigger wagonish Audi with too many bells and whistles.

First off photobucket sucks!

Secondly, I got the conversion inspected. All passed except for the 3 codes still popping and the lack of a cat.
Cat is being installed as I type at exhaust pros.

So close to have this car legit and legal. Still have a code for brake light and glow plug light and a code for a warning lamps :banghead:

Shout out to the DPD for the $110 expired tags ticket I got ON THE WAY TO GETTING THE CAT INSTALLED !!!

I'm sure I'm the guy they need to be pulling over...and not the people doing hit and runs and the people stealing high end mtn bikes and the punks that are vandalizing peoples' cars. It's me. The guy trying to get his Tdi swap legal!

Wish it was that easy to get inspection done in Illinois. No one can point you in correct direction in this state. My next swap planned it for the eurovan

Brake light as in the ECU is attempting to find an ABS sensor that isn't there? Glow plug light as in the LED in the cluster?

No ****, looks like all my conversion photos (and others) posted here are now gone. I will not be upgrading my pbucket just to host those photos so I hope people aren't pissed but they're not coming back.

Passed emissions today
One step closer to a legal car
Still have a brake light code and a glow plug code
But it's running good!

Ironically popped an IC coupler on the way to the testers...even though I'd been driving it now and then without issue. Had to get it back snug before the tester ran it on the Dyno. ..



Here one phot replaced since photosucket

I was actually in here looking for this thread, wondering if you ever got that thing on the road.

Congrats!

PS - post up part number for the cat you had installed, some of the ones that the Mk3/B4 guys use are being replaced with new stuff, looking to add one to my wagon I think even though law says I don't have to.
