      Thanks guys!

      I damaged my cam sensor when doing the chains.... stupid mistake. I think it will still work but not worth the chance.

      I didn't read this whole post but the particular coil is not the problem, it's the heat. The plastic gets brittle and cracks.

      My point exactly. The upper tensioner rail usually breaks, mine is red, still working. Just strange.

      I notice that there are many quality issues on models built in Germany verse Brazil, Mexico etc.

      Looks like the battery was dead, all the errors regarding voltage can be ignored. I would clear it, drive it and re-scan for a cleaner output.

      The MKIV also has a fan switch in the radiator, pass side, 3/4 down. I thought however the variable speed was controlled off the temp sensor.

      Damn, you changed the harness. Wow.

      I'm not totally sure how the TPS works in your vehicle, I'd need to check the shop manual. Something is telling it to open or close when you plug it in which...

      I'm really not sure what you are talking about here.

      The MAF sits on the air intake, there is a 4 wire connector to the MAF, slip a small screw driver in and release the plug.

      1. Batteries can be hit or miss, most batteries are sealed so if there is a single cell that is down, the test may not show it until the other cells are weak as well.
