Alright guys, my buggy has been pissing me off as of late, as from when i bought it the wiring in it is shocking, looks like someone has vomited spagetti down the back of the dash, the lights turn on with no key in, indicators work with no key and the push button start turns the engine over with no key. so im opting for a brand new wiring loom, buggy specific from Machine7.com; has anyone fitted a wiring loom before so maybe i can get some hints and tips for when i get stuck? many thanks.
The easiest one to begin with is your headlamp relay (the last photo above)
Pin 56 - Is the + input from your battery, if you are using the standard beetle switch for your headlights then this pin connects to pin 56 on the switch.
Pin 30 - Is the + input to the relay itself, it should be on a supply that is turned off when the ignition key is taken out
S - is your change-over signal (low to high beam) and connects to a brown and white cable from the steering column, I must admit that I am a bit confused over this one as you don't seem to have this one and I cannot find a single diagram with a brown cable with a blue stripe, if you are unsure leave this one until last.
Pin 56a - Is the supply to your main beam, white cable in your case.
Pin 56b - is the supply to your dipped beam lamps, it connects to the blue cable on your headlamps
The original headlight switch looks like this, its not a problem if yours is different... we just need to figure out how to connect it.
