I have to leave in a few minutes for an out-of-town wake, but I'll photograph the wiring schematic pages in my manual (I have the manual for the B5 A4), and post them online, and I'll provide you a link to the pics. I should be able to do this tomorrow morning, and once it's up, I'll post a reply here with a link to the pics.

SOURCE: 1998 Audi A4 Quattro rear speaker wiring

You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.

SOURCE: Have a 1986 Audi 5000 CS Quatro that will crank but not start..

I have repaired this problem several times.Excessive resistance in the ignition wire connectors can cause this condition. Easy cure, high resistance plug wires. I know it can't be that easy, but it is! Audi had recall rearding this problem. If you are haveing other problems, go to all data online and look at the technitions help tips. There an ancer for almost everything. Hope this helps.

Have a 1986 Audi 5000 CS Quatro that will crank but not start..

The ground? You'll have to be more specific. There are several grounds involved in starting the car. Whichever it is, it'll have to be repaired. This repair should be fairly simple -- replace the broken cable or clean the connection, then replace. There's no way to bypass the ground. Let me know which ground it is, and I'll try and look it up in the repair manual, and give you some tips on how to track it down and fix it.

I am looking to drain the radiator 86 Audi 5000 Turbo, Which is the best way? Can I get electrical schematic free for it off the internet somewhere? Small issues. There is a resivour next to the brake...

Remove the bottom engine covers. You will see a plastic petcock on the radiator. Take that out and take the radiator cap off.

You have to use Hydaulic Mineral Oil. Call a parts dealer shops use or call your dealer. If you use any other fluid it can cause system failure.

As for wiring diagrams im not sure.
