Trunk light without function: As is the case if no cables are connected or present

  • Hi everyone,

    I did a few electrical issues on my G today and then devoted myself to a little thing like the trunk light. I unscrewed it and it quickly became clear why nothing is lit here: The socket is not connected and there aren't even any cables in the trunk lid that could be connected. One of the predecessors must have done some "weight optimization" :])

    Hence the question of where the required cables normally come from and how they are routed from the trunk into the lid? Perhaps someone has a meaningful photo?

    Best regards, Daniel

  • I can't provide a photo at the moment. But it's just a cable...from the 82 wiring diagram:

    T10 is in the trunk, probably at the fuse box:

    See also the wiring diagram from 3.2

  • Hello,

    if you can't find the cable, get the power from the rear light

    Air-cooled greetings

    From the tail light outlet in the fuse box? Or run the cable from the rear through the whole car to the front?

    The trunk lighting also works without the (rear) light being switched on. Could it be that you mean the engine compartment lighting?

    That would fit.

  • On mine, this is powered by the glove compartment lighting.

  • It's just a simple continuous positive cable. Don't forget the earth cable. The contact switch is screwed directly next to the light.
