    *Urgent SOS* Please help

    Hi guys, need some urgent help!
    Long story but my brother was trying to help me out but has manage to drill straight through the wiring loom as it runs under the passenger seat from the front of the car to the rear.
    I have been on a few hours soldering the wires back together (driven me )
    The ones that were not split in two I just re-insulated...
    BUT....
    I now have 2 problems:
    1) The brake warning light and ABS light on the dash have come on
    2) My central locking has completely stopped working

    All the lights etc are working ok so I am guessing that I need to re-look at some of the wires

    Can anyone send me a wiring diagram for this car or tell me which wires are likely to be at fault/control these functions?
    I tried to Vag-com it to narrow down possibilities for ABS light but my (ebay version) vag-com has satrted to play up.

    ohhh what a nightmare day!!!


    PLEASE HELP ME

    My car is a 1996 A4 (AEB) not the quattro

    THANKS GUYS

    Good luck mate sorry i can not provide a diagram but just check that the wires you insulated are making not split and are making good connections are with the soldered joints, also make sure there are no short circuits

    g60leigh.

    The haynes manual for the A4 should have the all the wiring diagrams. i can also send you the wiring diagrams from elsawin if you send me a pm with an email address.
    I need to know if you have the remote control central locking or just the key operated one

    Or use a circuit tester on the wires you have soldered to make sure you have no brakes in the loom.

    You may also need to use Vagcom to clear the error codes and get the warning lights away.

    am i right in saying you reset the lot by disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes....reconnect....turning the ignition on one click for twenty/ turn off then start the car? I know this does wonders for everything else. May reset the lights, if not, no harm done. Please correct me if i'm wrong

    Then get your Plonker brother to put his foot on the brakes so you can see the live.

    Only kidding about the brother thing.

    No I have not tried that yet mate, will do it tomorrow, I got stuck straight into soldering the wires when I got in and found out.

    Need to get a new copy of Vag Com 409 to reset error codes as me keeps disconnecting the cable so have to test connection again!
