On the VW wiring diagram there is BL/BLK wire that transaistions to a Gr/Rd at a junction block and then splits. One side goes to the oil pressure light, where does the other wire go? The diagram shows it going to #43. I don't know what #43 is. I think it must be grounded somewhere as it is causing the oil light to come on. Short of pulling the dash I don't know where it goes. I thought it may go the Diag plug but there is no mention of it.
I had it all working and then I put the cluster back in and the oil light is ful all as well as the Alt light is dim.
So the big question is? where does the second wire from the white dash plug terminate to?
If this has been answered, I apologize I've looke din Diagrans and forums. If you can direct Me somewhere zi'd appreciate it.

Track 43.. Goes to K7. What is K7? that ties into the warning system for the seat belts, and hand brake.

I need to verify that this wiring is correct. When plugged in the oil pressure light stays on.
I need to buy a manual with a full diagram. This is a customers car and was in pieces when it came to me.
Everything works fine until I plug the warning light plug into the harness.

Any help appreciated.

OK , I think I now understand. It took a while to find the thread. You'd think this would be a sticky.
I need to buy a Relay as mine is missing. Is there some way to By pass this relay and delete the buzzer and retain the functionality of the Parking brake light.
I don't care about the seat belt warning light. I may By pass all of this silliness and put the light in place of the OXS light. I am more concerned of driving with the P brake on then driving without the seat belts.
I am going to buy a relay because they are cheap. I like all systems to work, I don't know if this worth the fight.
