Tracks 225 to 266 deal with the fog lamp switch (E23) as well as washers and wipers. No misteak there; there are 3 pages of current flow diagrams but few devices. Continue reading
The rear window demister and signal horns are covered in tracks 211 to 224. Yes, a Golf has horns. Especially a GTI. Continue reading
Tracks 197 to 210 describe the networking of the main and reversing light switches.
The networking of the indicators and the main rear lamp clusters is described in tracks 183 through to 196. Continue reading
Tracks 155 to 168 cover the supply of power to the front headlamps, parking and driving lights. High and low beam are controlled by switch E4 on the indicator stalk. Continue reading
Tracks 141 to 154 covers the networking of interior passenger (W15), luggage compartment (W3) and number plate (X) lights. Little rhyme nor reason why the number plate lights are in those current tracks but as a result, this page introduces a total of 6 new nodes.
Tracks 127 to 140 cover the connection of the radio (R), cigar lighter and it’s light (U1) and the glove compartment light (W6) into the vehicle networks.
Here, I describe the first-cut of how current tracks dealing with the Instrument Cluster and its sensors are detached from the central electrics and connected by the network. That’s tracks 71 to 126 inclusive; 4 sheets of schematic.
It’s been quite a while. Slow progress. Lots of other things to tackle.
Meanwhile, I’ve been “repainting” the current flow diagrams to reflect the decentralised electrics with the respective distributed control units, new switches and devices; and the lack of connection into the central electrics.
For easy reference, I’m leaving the original electrical devices in or near the same current tracks as drawn originally.
Similarly, the colour(s) of connecting wires remain, as much as possible, the same as per the source vehicle. Wire sizes are being reviewed as most of the wires to switches, etc. will no longer be carrying substantial current to drive motors and lamps directly; just a tiny signal and some tiny illumination in the case of dashboard switches.
Here are the first few pages. Continue reading
