      ...at the top of...what?

      the engine? top of the roof?
      umm?....

      you really dont need many "wires" on the stock vehicles
      infact you could remove about 90% of the wires on the entire car and as long as a few remain you can start the car and just drive it
      its really that simple

      yes, pics would be helpful...you should post them

      you need a "fuse block pin out" diagram... I never could seem to find one for my car.

      You likely have unplugged the main positive power to the block, sorry I can't help you any further, but if you get a pin-out you'll have it licked.

      Time to learn to speak Klingon.. I know its a pain in the ass, but reading wiring diagrams is a way of life when you own a mk1.

      I don't understand why it doesn't even show what the spades are for. Or what plugs into them.

      the spades are used for different things on different models depending on your option set, obviously they always have the same job back there tho... its definitely in the book, sit down and wrap ur brain around the book, it will do nothing but good for you.

      Honestly, if you cant look at the manual and get this going you're going to have a lot of tough times owning that car.

      Pay no attention to DH, his father never loved him, he just loved delivering mail to the house while his dad was at work.

      Pay no attention to SGLoki, he doesnt even own a rabbit cause he cant ****ing drive and had em all crashed.
      Since that time he's just given up ruining mk1s and bought something that's already a POS from the beginning.

      All of the "H pins" on the early fuse panel are "Terminal 30" pins; meaning that these H terminals supply +12VDC directly from the battery with no intervening switch to turn off the voltage.

      And Deathhare is a top dog

      Cheers, WWR.

      If deathhare were a "top dog" he wouldnt be insulting people........ There is more to life than trolling an talking crap to people who admittedly cant do something. I believe the classification is a douche.
