mk2 AEB wiring a OBD port question.
Hey Folks! i have completed the wiring on my mk2 golf and everything works perfectly now. i wanted to wire the obd port so i can read codes and etc... i have spend hours of searching and came up with very limited and general information. all i know is that there are 3 wires needed to accomplish this task.
i would really appreciate if anyone can explain it little bit more precise which wires need to be selected and connected to obd connector. thanks
then you hook up constant 12v, switched 12v, and ground.
hook it up to what??

i have read the whole wiring instruction there are two wires that i could link to obd. are these loose wire or do i have to splice them.
little more hiint will help me alot. Thanks
i have highlighted the ones i think that is related to obd port.

thanks alot!! i just read the ross tech website and i am using a rosstech 2x2 adaptor.
with all the info i have i should get this going!
i dont understand, using an adapter overcomplicates the issue. you just splice the wires together, simple as that. the obd2 port doesnt literally use all of those pins, just the ones we told you about. thats how its wired on my car and it always communicates, with any scantool.
k diag wire, connected to ecu.
white/black wire, connected to ecu.
ground wire to chassis
switched 12v to ign., or anything thats constant with the key
and the other 12v to the battery(or main fusebox power)
its as simple as that.
people really over-complicate these 20v swaps...
i am not over-doing anything.... just connecting the the splice wires to 2x2 ross tech adaptor to be able to use my vag-com cable. thanks for your input
did you car already come with a 2x2 adapter in the dash?
no it's mk2 dash. that's why i am hoping to wire it and and secure it under the dash nead the center console. how do you plug yours to vag-come?
i just grabbed an obd 2 port from the junkyard and wired it in as described. this is why i said you were overcomplicating it, b/c it sounds like your gonna wire the ecu to a 2x2 port and then plug in a 2x2 to obd2 plug when you can just go straight from the ecu->obd2 port.
