A3jetta2.0T, The only way you will find the correct wires you need to interfase is with a VOLTMETER. Usually VW factory change the wires colors at the steering wheel so is not good just to follow recomendation based on wires colors.
Take the VOLTMETER and look for a wire thatshow you 12V+ and keep 12V+ power eaven when you are cranking the engine. Thats will be your IGN line and you will have to conect the TT ignition wire there.
If you find a wire that keep 12V+ with the key open but Voltage decay when you are cranking the engine, this will be your ACC line.
Conect there your TT acc.
If you dont know how to use a VOLTMETER, try a person or budy thats know how to install a Car Radio or amplifier in order to help you.
Good luck,
Isaac

Re: Installed Greddy turbo timer but doesnt count down. (Gavster)

sure do... atleast.. that's what i remember... it's been years... i believe the solid red is just cranking power and the red/black is constant power...
