mk4 electrical help

Recommended Posts

Hi bought a mk4 project and I'm having trouble with some of the electrics. 

The problem just now is there is no power  to the lights on the dash for the petrol/ oil warning , the electric windows have no power , the heaters don't work theres no warning handbrake is on etc.

Could there be something joining all these together that has been disconnect for what ever reason previously ? And if so where is this located ? 

When I bought it the previous owner had replaced ( and not finished or took out the old cables ) the electrical cables for the roof so its been a hassle tracking what goes where as its an electrical mess!

Thanks in advance paul.

Make sure the battery to earth (left of the battery as you look at it) is connected.  My mk3 had similar issue this week and it was this earth lead that had snapped.

Where you based? Start at bottom work your way up. Battery. Fuse ox wires. Bulbs.
