      1984 VW Rabbit GTi
      02-03-2010 03:16 PM #1
      Hey,

      Just got an 84 Rabbit and I'm trying to get all the loose wires hooked up, but I'm not quite sure where everything plugs in. I'm kinda new to the electrical stuff.

      Basically, if anyone happened to have a PDF Rabbit manual for models between 80-84 I'd really appreciate it. Or even just a wiring diagram. Currently I'm working on getting the dome light to turn on with the door-ajar. I've found the wire, but again, not quite sure where it goes.

      Any help is appreciated.

      Get a bentley manual, it sounds like this might be a big project.

      There is a "torrent" of information on bentley manuals on the internet if you get my drift

      Dude... you have a 16v swap... which means the electrical is also swapped. If it isn't broke don't fix it.

      You sure you want this car? I'll trade you for a 1972 porsche that needs a engine.

      Is this GTI Primer black with blacked out windos and some red racing seats in it?
      We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

      Why the hell would I want your POS porsche? LAwl

      And I'm trying to hook up all the necessities like the domelights, horn, front signals, dashlights and stuff.

      Also, couldn't find a Bentley manual with any seeders.
