Question about 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet
My husband and I recently bought a 92 Cabriolet Karmen convertible. We took the car to a mechanic who apparently didn't know anything about the car. He offered to install a radio for $50, which I accepted, because the car was without a radio. I purchased the correct wiring harness, but for some reason he decided to hard wire the radio. In the process he knocked out the turn signals. The relay has been replaced, the switch has been replaced, the fuse has been replaced, yet the turn signals will not work. We purchased the manual from Chilton; however, the wiring schematic in the Chilton Manual does not match up with the fuse legend on the fuse cover. Do you know where we can get the schematic for a Cabriolet Karmen as the Chilton manual does not include a specific schematic for the Karmen model. I am assuming the Karmen is an editions of the Cabriolet as there is an original logo on the side that says Karmen. Any suggestions would be great! We bought this car to learn stick and for the gas mileage and it has been sitting for months now. Thank You!
It sounds like the moron spliced into your power wires in your dash, to make your stereo work... or more likely cut them completely!
If you have the Chilton Manual Part #70400 ( 74 and Later Rabbit/Golf/Jetta...) and turn to page 12-79, you'll find a wiring schematic for your Cabriolet.
Hopefully, you won't have to tear your whole dash out to fix this mess!
I suggest removing the new stereo first. and then start looking around in there for a brown w/red stripe wire hanging loose somewhere. If you find it, just get a wire nut, or **** connector, and splice it back together with it's missing end. You can do this as a 3 way splice quite easily, and it's common practice in alot of stereo shops. Seems that oftentimes that ignition cable is just the easiest power supply on hand!
Hope this helps!
