  1. Evening all, I want to bench run my 1100 hb engine, but forgot where the wire from the condenser on vac adv dizzy goes, is it to negative? Thanks
  2. I am in the process of tidying up my radio wiring harness. It's been butchered over the years and now is a lot tidier. I can't identify one wire. It's blue and white in colour and is connected to pin 10 of a 12 pin plug (with the rest of the radio power feeds). Is this the illumination feed for the car radio? If so then it should be connected to the orange wire of the ISO connector? There is also an unconnected small brown plug with a blue/white wire buried next to the 12 pin plug. Is this the illumination feed for an unconnected switch? (say some optional extra like heated front seats)
  3. I have two wires going from Alternator. One goes to the battery positive (thick black cable) and the other is a single little blue wire that goes to the starter motor. In between these cable there is a plastic clip that holds the cables to the alternator. I have a thick cable going from starter motor to the battery positive. I have a thick black cable going from negative battery terminal to the gearbox housing bolt. In between this cable there is a fixing to the left side chassis. I have a ground cable going from top back of rocker cover engine to the engine bay back wall. That's it. I'm sure this is how it was before I pulled all the cables out as I have no other cables remaining. My question is; is this right?
  4. I'm about to replace my stolen stereo and get my rear 6x9s wired in. I don't think my car has the wiring for rear speakers. Can anyone tell me the route the wiring takes? Down the passenger side carpet? Which holes does it come out of in the boot? Also which path does it take around the rear hatch? The stereo I'm getting is a Sony MEX-GS820BT. Would I need to upgrade the power wires? The manual states rated power consumption 10A. thanks in advance https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/in-car-receivers-players/mex-gs820bt
  5. I have a mk4 Polo which has had a break pad warning light on for years. Break pads regularly checked and deemed good, so put down to a wiring fault. Car had cam belt replaced about a year ago, plus relatively new battery. It runs well but changes to MOT rules now include warning lights. Any suggestions on cost of sorting wiring fault, as seems a shame to scrap a good car.

    1.8T AUM conversion

    Yes the age old question of swapping a 1.8t into a polo but not any polo a mk2f polo. What im after is some advice about keeping the original clocks in the polo but running a 1.8t but I’m struggling to work out what I can do for a loom to get it all working correctly, ideally I need the obd port for possible remapping in the future and if the engines running rough. I’ve got both cars next to each other so it should make life easier but I doubt that 😂 It it will probably be easier if I bullet point my answers any advise is welcome Can I run 1.8T (AUM) on it’s own with out the immobiliser? Can I have it push butting start with out needing the key and clocks? Can I use the existing ECU? What driveshafts should I use? What brake setups are best for this? Would it be easier if I got a new pedal box because the AUM is DBW ? Thank you in advance Harley
  7. Hi all. I've bought my self a new car stereo and have decided to wire this one in properly with a proper ignition feed rather than bodging a constant 12v feed. Trouble is I don't have an obvious ignition on 12v feed. What's the easiest way to to go about plumbing one in. Also when climbing under the dash I've found two unused plug and socket (pictured) and don't know what they're for, any ideas?
  8. Hi,Could someone send me a photo of the wiring that plugs in to the sender unit under the back seat.They have broken off out of the plug! Thanks
  9. Just got a 6n2 and the driver side electrics dont work. Ive looked at the wiring between the driver side door and the body if the car to find a broken brown wire thats previously been repaired and failed... Whats the best way to properly repair this? Also when i touch the wires the electric mirrors and locks work, passenger window also works but drivers window still wont work. I dunno how to fond out if its the switch or the motor. The motor makes a click noise when i push the button in one direction but does nothing
  10. ive started a swap ..mk2 polo to 3f mpi injection etc the 2 yellow wires for the diagnostics ...the diagram i have shows it going to the interior loom white wire which is heater speed 1 ? doesnt sound right to disable the heater has anyone go a working diagnostic socket on a mk2 swap ...i need pics /help
  11. I am mid way through a afh converaion on my polo mk3 coupe i was wondering if anyone could help with with some advice on wiring and what old looms i can get rid of i have a mk2 ignition loom coil and amp on order I've heard people say I can remove the old engine loom is this correct ? Do I need any wires or plugs off it if so ? If anyone knows of a build thread can you send me a link over any help would be appreciated thanks !
  12. My left indicator is doing this strange thing every now and again and it's super irritating while I'm driving, it doesn't do it when indicating right but only does it on left When it does do it the indicator doesn't even come on, I've looked in the steering column and wiggled some wires about which seems to fix it for a short period of time and then it just does it again. Starting to think it's the actual switch but not sure, any help would be appreciated, thanks. Snapchat-276793547_000.mp4
  13. Hello, I know there is a lot of threads on ABS and sensors but I guess every problem is unique, I have a 9N3 1.8T Polo GTI (07). A while back my ABS light had come on along with traction control permanently off, scanned the car and it came up with: ''ABS Wheel Speed Sensor Rear Left (G46), 008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent'' I investigated and found some of the wiring had burnt through the exhaust but was soldered (badly) by the previous owner, I unplugged the sensor and pulled it through the car onto the rear bench, cut the bad solders off, stripped and crimped (upon inspection of the wiring the black was slightly discoloured, maybe from the previous owner putting too much heat on the wire), this worked fine for around a day of driving. Then the fault seemed to reappear, I again pulled the cable through the car, checked the wiring and repeated the same process, still didn't work. I then cut the crimps off and soldered. Now it seems the problem is very intermittent, the fault comes and goes very quickly. Sometimes it's on for a day then other days vanished and everything works fine. An output test for the ABS was also completed via VCDS when the fault was gone and everything checked out fine. Measuring blocks whilst driving shows no output from the rear left when fault is present. As I'm typing this I realise this looks very much like a wiring fault but I can't help thinking this may be something else. So far I've changed the sensor, the rear disk has also been removed and cleaned up any dirt maybe stopping the sensor from working correctly. My next idea is to maybe change the rear wheel bearing as it works with the sensor to output a signal. Any thoughts, similar experiences or little things I can check would be appreciated. Thanks, John

    AUA wiring diagram.

    Chaps, Im just about to start a AUA conversion into a mk2f polo. Was wondering if anybody would have had a wiring diagram for a AUA from a lupo. Its currently still in there so i can work it out and trace back if i need to however would be very handy if i could find a diagram to get me a head start. Aidan.
  15. Hi All, I am just wondering if somone can help me please as in a bit of a panic! I have a mk2 polo ranger from 1990 pre facelift, for the past few years its had a tempermental issue with the power feed (I beleive its the live cable from the ignition feed) to the speedo unit as intermittently loose power to the instrument cluster and gauges every now and then it will flicker and mess about, I have pressed all the crimps down in the loom plug to try and make contact to the many cables and its been ok ish for a year but now it will just not work at all now. I am in a bit of a panic as I have mot coming up at end of May! I do still have a working clock, full beam indicator on the cluster but I have lost temp,fuel gauges, handbrake light, oil & indicator lamp. I dont know if there is a supplier of loom plugs or some place I could get one? I have had a look on ebay with no such luck or even if there is something like it that will fit ok? The origional vw part number is: 321971998 Or is there a work around maybe I am open to ideas I dont care what has to be done as long as its working again to be honest. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Kindest Regards, Lewis

  17. Hi Everyone! I'm brand new to this site, so I hope I'm doing this right! I have recently brought my first car, a Volkswagen Polo 1.2 S 2002 plate. Now, upon purchasing this car, I realised there were a few faults, however, I am finding more as the days go by. The main things I am concerned about are, the immobiliser (The lights aren't on at all), the stereo doesn't turn on and I am missing the long antenna of the aerial on the roof. The original stereo does not work and I have recently purchased a second hand pioneer face-off stereo from eBay. Does anyone have any advice on any of these problems or how I would fit this stereo myself (even though I'm a woman, I'm savvy and will give anything a go! ) Any feedback would be much appreciated! Many thanks!

    Electrical Issues

    (Mods please move this post if it's not in the correct part of the forum) Kind of a long one sorry but any help would be greatly appreciated I've had my 9N3 for three odd years now and largely it's been spot on but for the past 6 months it's been a fucking pig. Basically all started when I randomly got an EPC warning light out of nowhere, looked it up, replaced the brake switch and it was sorted but about a week later I got ABS warning light frequently and the power steering would cut out for no reason. However, if I turned the car on and off again it would be fine again immediately which showed me that it can't actually be a mechanical problem. On top of this a lot of the other electrics were temperamental as fuck, such as the stereo cutting out for no reason and the interior light flickering like mad. I assumed it was a bad battery and replaced it, which solved nothing, since then, I've had another battery, replaced the alternator, cleaned all the ground points, and replaced the positive and negative cables. For a couple of days it was spot on but tonight the headlights randomly cut out as I was driving and it took a good few tries to turn them on and off again. I've reached a point now where I feel like I'm just throwing money at the problem to no avail and everybody seems to have a different idea what it might be and it's simply not worth sinking that money into a bog stock 3 cylinder 9n3. If anybody has any ideas what it could be it would be brilliant because I'm at my absolute wits end, my brain's fried at thinking what it could be and I wanna sell the car asap but don't wanna sell it until I know the car is 100% reliable and safe and I'm not mugging anyone off. Cheers : AAASA
  20. I have been having trouble with the indication lights on my 88 polo. When the lights are switched on (and the key out of ignition) all works ok. When the key is turned the clock lights go out, the adjustable dial works on the blue light and the headlights are reversed. The high beam indication is on when high beams are off. I have heard about an earth fault but this only started after I removed the dash surround, no other wiring has been touched.
  21. Hi, Lost keys for car (98 polo 1.4) so bought an ecu/immobiliser/ignition/door locks + keys from someone breaking online... ecu + ignition is fitted ok, have all electric working , but unable to start car due to immobiliser. The immobiliser is different from my current one. ! This is the original: This is the replacement: Before i blow anything up ... 8) I am guessing "NC" is not not connected ? Should it work ok?? Thanks
  22. Hey to everyone! Today i decided to buy a aftermarket central locking kit. My polo from 1996 1.0L never had a factory central locking system on it. I did some research on the web regarding this subject and i did learn some things. The actuator placements in the doors are pretty straight forward not much to learn. The hard part is the wiring the central locking kit. The kit contains : - 4 actuators : 3 with two wires, and one with five wires. - The controller - Two wires ( Red and Black ) For 12V current - Two wires ( Brawn and White ) for the blinkers. I think a good way to get the 12V current is from the car`s lighter box. But i have no idea how to connect those two wires ( Brawn and White ) to the blinker`s system. ( those wires should turn the hazard lights when you open or close the doors. A friend of mine mounted a similar kit on his car ( a non VW car ) and he connected i think one of those wires to his hazard button from his console. I think that did the same thing as connecting them to the lights directly. I have no idea how should i do it. For more help maybe some one knows the wire colors and could help me with some tips i added some pictures to help you out. http://postimg.org/image/664gulb75/ http://postimg.org/image/jfe96mj0r/ http://postimg.org/image/x6yhc67in/ http://postimg.org/image/pgfggj30l/ http://postimg.org/image/5s076jvfp/ Thank you! Hopping for some support!

    6n2 Sub Boot Build

    Hi all, I'm doing a boot build for my 2 15" 1500w Sony Xplodes, so far i have built the box, fitted the subs and placed it in the boot of my 6n2. I came in to a hiccup when I realised how I was going to power them, so I bought a JL Audio 1200/1v3 amp, but I now need to know how I will power the amp. Should I use the battery in the car already or put in another battery in?? if so where would i put it?? do I need a different alternator?? Thanks, Corbin Car : Y-reg 6N2 1.0 MPI Sub 1: 1500w 450rms 4 Ω xs-l152p5s (http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/xs-l152p5s) Sub 2: 1500w 450rms 4 Ω xs-l152p5s (http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/xs-l152p5s) Amp : 1200w x 1 @ 1.5-4 Ω 1200/1v3v (http://www.jlaudio.co.uk/product/54216.46510.48108.0.0/98352/_/12001v3)
  25. Hi, the cable to my nearsdie ABS sensor was chafing against the wheel, causing a break in the insulation. Water got in and of course my ABS light has come on. I have a new sensor and I went to VW for a new wiring harness, but I am not sure it is right. The two plug-in leads are easy enough but there are four extra single wires - with no connectors, where do they go? Has anyone any ideas? Please see attached photos of the ordinary connectors and then of the 5 or so separate wires. Any help gratefully appreciated as I have an MOT in 2 days! Thanks Adam PS - not sure why, photos aren't uploading
