Got a question about the Wolfsburg West turn signal switch. I have all the wires hooked up and there is an extra wire. Bus is a 66 deluxe with the 66-67 switch-all the colors match my 66 diagram but confused buy the extra wire. Anyone experience this? Havenít checked to see if it works yet. Iím going to test it out tomorrow.

Do you already have the high-low dip switch wire wired and operational when you test it?

What color is the 'extra' wire? If it's the blue wire, it goes to the turn signal indicator on your speedo. The brown wire is for the head light flash feature. All the other colors probably found mates of similar color.

Ok found out where ďextraĒ wire went, kind of embarrassing I was looking at my 6 volt diagram and 8 have a 9 prong box and 12 volt system. Everything works except flasher switch screws everything up. I noticed the switch is bad(have to wiggle it and then the knob flashes and not lights) so Iíll give that a go later.
Thanks for your help

OK nine pin question. If I short -S to ground the flasher should work correct. Also the flashers should work with the key off in the key on. Mine only flashes the relay not the lights with the key on, with the key off I only hear the relay click once. Also I know my emergency switch I believe is no good. Just trying to see if I need both. Trying to rule out nine pin relay but I think itís bad as well. Thanks for any suggestions ahead of time
