Title: Misterious Jack under electrics zone
Post by: mirosti on March 29, 2016, 08:34:39 AM
Hallo,
Yesterday, discovered strange connection jack under electric konsole. It is short circuiteed with wire on two connections.
When disconect it, starter motor doesn't run. Its clearly that previous owner made something..
What is it, and where I need to put it to connect as factory. Thanks in advance for help.

Impossible to say what it is or what needs doing just by looking at pictures.
You need to trace where wiring goes to and see what it is connected to

Maybe someone recognize such jack. It's only one shaped on such way on the sharan.

Humm that dosn't look factory fitted at all. I would say its aftermarket, possibly from a now removed alarm/immobiliser?

Yes, it's possible.
When remove wire, starter motor doesn't work.

It's not ideal leaving that link wire connected to get engine to start,I would definitely be tracing it back to source and removing properly
