One tip on your camera, is to use the macro lens mode (some cameras it's a flower icon, some it's a M)
Yes, the #19 pin has been moved to the formerly empty #66.
I'm still apprehensive that freakin YELLOW/BLUE wire is maybe not the right one...any way to double check that?
Problems with intermittent VAG-COM communications (Yes, it's the real deal from RossTech, - laptop probs most likely)

Cool, orphans taken care of.
I'll try the macro lens next time.

It's the one that had continuity to pin #9 on the 175 socket but was supposed to be YELLOW/GREEN.
I'm done for the night. Alpha, you've been a huge help today.
Tomorrow morning; goin' down to the local exhaust dude for a straight pipe. :-D

I'll post up another thread that could be linked to this one with the complete 3rd revision we did of the electronics. All the questions asked are covered and it's real simple to follow. It take just a few hours to do the whole thing. I REALLY do recommend an electrical continuity tester. Harbor Freight Tools sells a nice one for $30.

I say another thread as this one is just ridiculously big and takes hours to sort through.

The more versions the better! I'm working on one for my car as well. Looks like one should not assume colors and pin references apply to their model just because it's pre 99.5 or post-whatever.

Great idea Jason...the more the better. I am going to need to get rolling on mine very soon. Trans is slipping more, shifts are getting harder...the rubber band is getting stretchier.

The wiring seems to be the sticking point for most people... but it's actually quite simple, just the wire colors were changed to protect the engineers.

I'll be looking for it since I think I've just about exhausted the possibilities on this end.
Thanks

What would help here is a good close up picture of each modified connector so that wire color does not confuse.

Any volunteers?

Wire colors as well as some pin numbers...

The really important stuff- Starter interlock and Reverse lights - so everything but the CC. Great thing about that is that the Jet is once again my daily driver!
I (properly) eliminated that pesky YELLOW/BLUE wire so now there is only one wire (BLACK/GREEN) running +12V to the Black (CC Cancel) switch. Then I connected the RED/GREY wire (from pin #3) to the CC Cancel switch as well as under the cowl, to the RED/YELLOW one that now goes to pin #66 at the ECU.
Still no cruise and I think I've run out of possibilities from the 175 relay, except those that are dedicated to the new 53 relay.

Basically, you need +12V going to pin 66

Yup. When I get this figured out I promise to detail what my car's conversion entailed. With at least some pics.

There is +12V going to pin 66 as long as the ignition is on and the clutch is out. Which I think is good.
I'll try to get my hands on that VAG COM again...meanwhile, any other ideas?

BTW: Is there anything I need to do with the VAG COM to make this work, or is it simply a troubleshooting tool?

it's simply a troubleshooting tool in this case... if your cruise worked before, then it should work now.

the +12 should be there if the foot is off the pedal (which is clutch in).
