I have a non-running mess of a wiring rats nest VW 74 Super Beetle. Is there anyone I could talk to who could get me started by answering some questions about what color wires go where? Better yet if you live near me I would like to come visit and look under your rear hood.
I have the manuals and some schematics, but I still need some help. Thanks much Dale Wilmington DE

Sounds like you've got the same sort of problems I have. I've got a 74 Super myself and probably have the same schematics you do. The only advice I might be able to give is a battery and a test light. I was able to use the test light to do some verification of the schematics. Good luck.

While the color coded diagrams are awesome and really helpful if you understand that stuff, if you're a dope like me, you have no idea what that means in a real world sense. What I wanna see is some pics of where these relays and whatnot are actually located on my messed up 74SB. I have no brake lights, running lights, or reverse lights and instead of a hazard flasher relay, I have a honking big red wire that I think powers the after market Sparkomatic radio. So, any help with that? ohplease,ohplease,ohPLEEEASE!!
