Yes it is the purple connector. Any generic OBD II scan tool should be able to pull up P codes. Sometimes you will get an enhanced DTC and no code will be given. If there is a shop in your area with a Launch X431 scan tool I'd go to them and have it scanned. Any Auto Zone can scan it for you to. Also I have never had a problem scanning any VW with an aftermarket stereo. Is your MIL on? If it isn't on I don't know why they would want to run a scan for the safety inspection.

It doesn't matter because they all carry +12V to the respective circuits. What does matter is which fusible link goes to which circuit (assuming they are different) but if you didn't cut them off, then they should still be connected to the correct circuits.
