I just got my first car, 1988 VW Jetta. The guy who owned it hacked the wiring all to hell and didn't use a harness.

What is the wiring diagram for a 1988 Vw Jetta?

What might be easier would be just to goto the junkyard and find the plug from one and splice it bak together, but you're probably planning that already [img]smile.gif[/img]
That's what happened to my car when I first got it, what a PITA.

Thanks Ross and JT. I'm posting pics in the Donut Shop soon. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Installdr.com also had a diagram I printed off. I just needed to know what power, acc, and gnd was. I'm going to put in my Clarion DXZ615 and my panasonic eq in today I am hoping. [img]smile.gif[/img]
