New to the forums, been reading for some time though. I've in the past few months been starting work on my new 78' 924. Car runs great but wasn't on the road for electrical problems. Those being no brake lights and the headlights don't pop up.

I've been looking it over recently and I've narrowed it down to both not receiving power from the fuse box. Wiring is ok because I can send power myself with the connector disconnected and it works. Problem is after looking into the fuse box i must have budged something causing the right rear taillight and side marker to always stay on. I have to disconnect the battery to turn it off I wanna remove the fuse box but the wiring on one side isn't connectors its all single spade connections. Is there a diagram anyone has of this or do i gotta map it out before and verify using the wiring diagram on reassembly? Also should i do it on my back or remove the dash (i wouldnt mind as the blower controls dont work either) It just seems like a messy mangle of wires and I don't wanna screw it up.

Anyone got any tips or suggestions?

If spade connectors it sounds like somebody grafted in a later fuse box, I had a 1981 Audi with the pin connectors and in 1982 I think Audi went over to a completely different and robust connector system. If it will help, I have most the parts or a wiring system of a 1980 that I have no use for, including I think the fuse box. Traveling for about 10 days so I can't give any more details.

If your turn signals are on with the car off, those side lights will be on. I had to pull the fuse thinking I had a problem, until someone on here pointed it out. Weird German feature.

This may or may not be your particular problem, but it is good to know.
