    I was hoping someone had a 1984 Cabriolet VW rear Fuse Panel photo with wires connected
    I am trying to rewire a Fuse Box in and the Individual Circuits pin outs on the rear of Battery power section "p' aren't labelled-I have two large male spade connectors that are main power in that aren't on diagram as they appear on my Fuse Box rear pinouts.

    I appreciate your response.
    These connections are mostly for additional equipment then, they aren't all in use, I was curious if I had everything correct. With the G spades I was curious about the exciter wire spade G4, previous owner cut a wire in a loom and directed it to G4-his way of dealing with a short I think-I reconnected it as original
    Thank you-I did hook them up where the obviously go-the car runs but I have switched out fuse box, previous owner had wiring issues and spliced and cut, I am putting everything back as it should be, with one fuse box I didn't have the emergency flasher lights but signal lights, now I have the flasher but no signals and when I turn the head lights on it cuts the engine-I am going to run some new grounds and clean up connections.

    yep this is correct. bare minimum on a standard euro car is the 2 fat lives to P as mentioned, and a black wire to G spade 2 or 5 from the handbrake warning light plus sometimes a grey/blue to G/8 for a spare dash lights on feed.

    G/4 is never used as far as I can see, jumping ignition live here would get the alternator charging if your clocks are faulty thats the only reason I would think someone would put a feed there?

    for indicators double check fuse 19 and check the wiring at the hazard switch, the black/blue wire should be fitted to spade 15 and is the ignition live feed from fuse 19 for the indicators. since its a spade on its own easy for it to get dislodged then short out somewhere metal taking out fuse 19 and your indicators

    if its got the MFA clocks there is an earth for the dashboard to the head, usually it kills the clocks with lights on rather than the engine but still worth a look. have a look at the battery voltage with engine running ideally it should be over 14v with no load. I'd say check its around 13.5v under load too but that seems to be a problem at the moment :lol:

    one thing if the battery light on the clocks isnt on with ignition then the blue wire to alternator D+ is disconnected somewhere or clocks/bulb is damaged, this would stop the alternator charging properly and may explain why its cutting out now with load and also why a random feed was put to G/4...
