I own a 2000 VW Jetta and ordered wiring kit 119175KIT but there were no Instructions in the box, can you send me a copy?
asked by: John D
The # 119175KIT tail light converter is a universal application, so vehicle specific instructions are not available for your 2000 Volkswagen Jetta.
You will need to use the included circuit tester to determine which wires behind your vehicle taillights are performing which function, and connect the wires from the converter accordingly.
First, you will need to access the back side of your tail light assemblies, where the wires going to the signal bulbs are coming out. Then you would have a helper sit in the cab and activate the turn signals and press the brake pedal for you while you are testing the wires in the rear of the vehicle.
For example, if your helper flips the right turn signal and you are testing a wire on your right tail light that flashes when the signal is applied, this would be your turn signal wire.
You would connect the wires from the converter as follows:
White: Ground wire, connected to a suitable grounding location on the vehicle frame.
Green: Right turn.
Yellow: Left turn.
Brown: Tail light.
Red: Brake light.
