No, the radio should only be wired through your battery, and a relay. In 87, Volkswagen in my opinion had the best cars. VW from 83-89 was my favorite years especailly the GTI's. Good luck.

Ignition coil wires how are the wires put back and how do i check for problems if the car does not want to start( vw fox 1600).

The firing order is 1,3,4, 2. Look at your distributor ,, there are four connectors on the ouside on the distributor cap and one in the middle. The coil wire goes in the middle. The #1 spark plug connector usually is the one that is closest to the master cylinder,#3 is closest to the rafdiator,#4 is closest to the front of the head and #2 is closest to the rear of the head. make sure rotor and distributor are carbon free. Other wise it may not start and if it does it will run rough. Replace if the items are full of carbon
