    B4 GP Relay...poof!

    Have you figured out what was wrong? I did the same thing, put the 180 relay in the number 12 spot on my 96 b4 and I heard a faint pop sound now the car just cranks but won't start and I have no lights come on on the dash at all

    A3 / B4 glow plug relay and fuse location

    Hey warthog, I had the same thing happen yesterday all though I'm the fat fingered mechanic that did it in a rush not thinking or comparing. Did your buddy ever figure out what happened from putting the 180 in position #12?

    B4 Passat glow plugs relay

    Hey there, I just got a glow plug relay for my 1996 Passat. I followed the illustrated instructions I found on here. I pulled relay 103 that's in position 12, put in the new one.

    1996 Passat 1z tdi glow plugs issues

    I figured they wouldn't turn on when warm, but the guy did let me know they don't work, they used to live in Alberta and would have a hell of a time trying to start it. Once I get it, I'll put a new relay in and hopefully that fixes her up. Thanx man.
