    It seems that the Central Electric as they are calling it is in fact what Audi call the Onboard Power Supply Control Unit-J519. Looking at the wiring diagrams for the A3 this is what the fog lights are connected to.

    Looking at the Workshop Manual this control unit is located "on the left under the dash panel under the relay carrier".

    I have created a couple of PDF files showing these items and how to get at them from the workshop manual but for some reason I cannot access my own website at the moment to upload them and give you access.

    You have two choices - wait until I can upload them hopefully with an hour or so or send me a PM with an email address and I will attach them to a returm email.

    Yep - under the drivers dash behind the light switch - above the Diagnostic port..

    Interested to know the route you took from the engine bay?

    Doing the same at the moment - had to swap my central electrics module though as mine didn't support fogs.

    Cheers

    Cheers all,

    fitted wiring today,

    Took the battery out and the base underneath and got in through the rubber gromment where the existing wiring runs then behind radio to the central electric.

    Vag comm tomorrow and hopefully all will be well.

    Did you use just the kufatec loom? And if so did you have to extend it to come through that route?

    Cheers
