I checked all the 15 amp fuses and several others. All were fine. Could you be more specific regarding which fuses I should be checking.
I am having a problem getting into the system to download a diagram, but I do have the fuse box diagram. Also check the fuses at the Power supply relay, see both links below.
Power supply relay
Ok, I checked 28, 29 and 32 but not the others and not the power supply relay. I will check them tomorrow. If they turn out to be ok, what how do I contact you for further troubleshooting?
Ok fuse in slot 10 was blown and every time i replace it and turn on the ignition it blows again. Obviously a short somewhere, but the question is where. Also, there are no other fuses in the power supply relay box other than the 428 and 100 relays themselves. Auto store did not have these in stock so no chance to swap them. All other fuses were ok (12, 28,29, 32)
Thanks David. Unfortunately I'm running out of time as the car is in a friends' garage overstaying its' welcome. I should have thought of pulling those damn coils off after blowing the 3rd fuse. I really want my 70 GTO back because it was a hell of a lot easier to play with. When I put the new coils on I did notice a nick on a black wire going into the connector on the cylinder that was misfiring. I checked all 4 wires for issues and only spotted the nick which I taped. I'm assuming when I pull the coils off the fuse will not blow - we'll see.
BTW, I called the local VW dealers today, described the problem, asked for a price to install a wire harness but they told me I had no clue. Funny.
