    Bought a used 1990 VW Cabriolet convertible. Was told the alternator was going out. Went out immediately. On its way out, the electric windows stopped working, the burglar alarm stopped working, the cooling fan stopped working, and I'm not sure what else is not working. Alternator has been replaced and the car does now start and run, however those items mentioned above still do not work. Please help if you can. Thanks. Mary

Hi Chrishuhagen-
Here is the diagram you requested. If you need other assistance or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an old VW mechanic, and I had (among others) a '71 Type 1 pop-top camper that I acquired with a blown engine. Built a stroker motor for it tuned for torque, and my friends redubbed it the "Ferrari Housecar!" It would cruise at 90 mph all day long, with plenty of pedal left! (And still get 30 mpg!)
Great cars!

This has been resampled to a smaller size so it would meet the file size limitations of the FixYa blog, but if you send me an e-mail at I will reply with the full size diagram as an attachment.

Please don't forget to rate my assistance----your rating is my only compensation for providing you this help!

Good luck with the electrical problems, and thank you!

How to fit a westfalia specific towbar wiring kit to a bmw e 60?


Send an email to me at and I will send you 2 installation PDF's for a 7 pin and 13 pin Jaeger cable. Please be aware that you do need a car specific cable set for a BMW E-60. This cable set includes CAN-bus modules. You cannot simply make taps on existing wiring as this will impact the BMW's fault diagnosis system.

Need to rewire electrical system. need diagram.

Check out faxon auto literature. They list the original VW service manual for your car.It should have the wiring diagram that you need but you could confirm that with them before you bought it. I've used them befor and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

Shift linkage problems with 1982 VW Westfalia - The gear shift inside the van suddenly when slack and 1st, 2nd and Reverse can no longer be selected.

there is a good chance its just the linkage, which i believe the westfalias had, but, most of the older vw's used plastic shift linkage, if you look just behind the tranny, there should be some bars with ball sockets on the ends, one of the short plastic ones has probably snapped one side of its socket if not the whole thing. its like a 5 dollar part at the dealership, if it is infact the same design. it happened on my friends 83 rabbit, so i would assume they still had the design, hope that helps!

Inherited 1973 standard vw bug

1973 should be a 1600 if someone didn't change it. Have you tried spraying carb cleaner into the carb to see if it will fire. If not, you might need to change the points and plugs
