View Full Version : 97 A4 Manual Swap Issue

02-14-2015, 06:34 PM
Hello, I just got done swapping in a manual in my 97 A4 1.8t everything is done except it won't start now [headbang] I tried using a jumper wire on the relay in the #13 spot and nothing happened. I removed the tcm already and was trying to recode the ecu for manual but it keeps kicking the rewrite as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated its currently sitting in my shop on a lift and I need to get this thing done so I can sell my Vr swapped Mk2.

I don't think the starter relay is in position 13 for the 97 model year. I think it's in position 4 on the Central Electric:


You will know you have the correct relay position because it is the only one with 2 pins that only go hot with the key in the START position.
