    electrics problems/ wiring diagram needed

    Hi there,
    I'm in the middle of fitting a towbar to my b6 avant.I'm trying to work out the connections in the rear lights. I have removed both rear lights so I can get at the plugs to trace the correct wire. When I turn on the side lights my front side lights flash constantly.
    My side lights are led ones and have had no problems with them so far.
    Anyone have any idea what will be causing this?
    Does anyone have a copy of the wiring diagram for the rear lights so I can find the correct wires to connect to.

    Thanks M

    Here we go, I have assumed you have the highline computer installed in your car (you get bulb-out warnings on the dash) as I believe the wiring is slightly different for highline/lowline.

    Wire Colours on diagram -
    sw = black
    ro = red
    br = brown
    gn = green
    bl = blue
    gr = grey
    li = purple
    ge = yellow
    or = orange
    rs = pink


    Hope this helps...

    Sorry, just seen this. Glad it's all sorted. For reference, (if anyone else needs this info) ws was code for white wires and the diagram shows all lights coming from the J519 (onboard power supply unit) to each rear light.
