    EGR cooler control ?'s

    ok thx. Your diagram does not show the factory installed check valve at the egr cooler either. My diagram is very close to what yours reads. The diagram, on my core support, does not, match the vacuum hoses on the engine the factory has installed.

    I have a Kenwood stereo installed in my 06 TDI Jetta. The unit will not shut down when the key is off. I have to shut off the head unit manually each time I exit the car. This sucks! I have checked that there is not a crossed wire in the adapter harness and that the switch 12v+ source...
