Have Volkswagen Questions? Ask an Expert Now.
My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The first thing to check here is to make sure you wired in the relays properly and that you are not tied into any circuit that is drawing down to much voltage or to much ground from another circuit.When a circuit that is installed is drawing to many amps on another circuit this will cause low voltage or amperage through the factory circuit which in turn can cause various electrical issues like this here.Make sure you wired these in correctly.
If this was already checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue with this here.
If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete.
This is a difficult one for me to be able to answer fully here myself.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.
Please reread your connections to the Relays........You do not show any connection to Relay PIN "86" to activate the Relay/sSPDT Relay:PIN 30 = Fused Voltage +PIN 87 = Voltage + to New Back Up LightsPIN 85 = Ground -PIN 86 = Voltage + from Factory Back Up Lights when in Reverse

Your connection to the New Back Up Lights is the problem.There is NO way that Voltage would drop or go off IF PIN 30 is connected to a Voltage + source that does NOT drop or drop out in Reverse with RPMYou need to be sure PIN 30 is constant Voltage + in Reverse & RPM upIF NOT, then locate another sourceThe Relay is Activated by the Factory Back Up Lights, so if the Relay is still activated in Reverse with RPM up, then the only issue is PIN 30 Voltage +So it will not matter what source you use for PIN 30, as the Relay will only be on in ReverseI would never use Factory Lighting source to power a component because of the complexity of the Lighting Module & sense of AMP draw thru the Lighting Module, which connection of another source can damage the Module
I never posted that the "Relays" were the issue
I understand what the Lights are doing when you increase the RPMIF the Factory Back Up Lights were NOT doing that prior to Installation of Relays, then there was a mistake made.The use of Relays (250ma to activate) connected to the New Back Up Lights should have had no affect on the Factory Back Up Lights & RPM, unless there was a ground or over draw of the Lighting Module
.I disconnected my aux backup lights by removing the fuse effectively bringing it back to stock condition.
Fuse removal would not assure that there was no mistake made nor really knowing if the connections were correct.
IF you have checked all wires & connections & the Factory Back Up Lights are still shutting off when RPM is increased, then something has went wrong
Here is Schematic for the Back Up Lightsclick attachment below
I just posted that to assist in being sure the right connections were made...........In my first response I posted:SPDT Relay:PIN 30 = Fused Voltage +PIN 87 = Voltage + to New Back Up LightsPIN 85 = Ground -PIN 86 = Voltage + from Factory Back Up Lights when in Reverse..
Regardless if the Factory Back Up Lights work correct or not, the New Back Up Lights should be working correctly if ALL wiring to the Relays are correct, regardless of RPMDo they?IF so, then you could use them & have the VW Light Circuit tested to repair the Factory Back Up Light issue or leave as connected.There should be no RPM concern to the Factory Back Up Lights

you are not giving me accurate information & I cannot be more "blunt" in what you need to do.I was not there when you made the connections or InstallI assumed you posted the wrong PIN numbers, but since I am not able to physically see or lay hands on the vehicle, we depend on the customer to give accurate detailsI have never seen your vehicle & by your response, you have no idea if the Factory Back Up Lights functioned correctly..........I posted 2 times to connect a Voltage + to PIN 30 of your New Back Up Lights Relays to assure constant Voltage + & NOT use what you have wired into.This is NOT a complex job.Relays were activated via Factory Back Up LightsIF you have wired as I posted, then there is NO issueThere is no "walk thru"??.......you either connected as posted or you didn't.........there isn't that much wiring to thisIF you refuse to wire the way I posted, then by all means take it to someone elseMy answer was to the point, & there should be no questions if you know how to complete electrical connectionsI have no clue why you state I am not helping you, with 5 responses & me not able to see what you have done.........
I have over 30 years Mobile Electronics experience & know how difficult it can be to someone that has not experienced newer electronics & could have shorted something internal
