Need help with 03+ PSE wiring

Recommended Posts

I installed the switch and relay today. To my dismay, the switch has a different finish than the rest of the switches in my '00 S. It's more matte-looking.

I had the same problem with my garage door opener (Targa blind) switch. A coat of gloss clear laquer did the trick, and now matches the other gloss switches nicely.

Yes, you're spot on. The 02 is has the shower heads and visible drain pipes either side. There's a pic here, for anyone who'd like to see one:


Thank you very much for the info. Though I am still a little confused. Though, please bear with me, I have a degree in engineering, so should be able to get my head around it!

How should the system work? When does the car decide to be noisy and when is it quiet?

Mechanically, how does it work. I Why have a solenoid and a vacuum feed to open/close a flap in the exhaust? Or is the solenoid vacuum powered and electrically switched?

I assume the switch is push to make, or push to break and the relay is therefore the part that does the latches the state?

I think I'll try grounding the grey/pink first to see how much difference I can hear before deciding on a switch.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the info. A run in the country at the weekend confirmed that it is running correctly (quieter between 25-45 mph). Sadly the PAS has packed up, so I need to sort that first before finding the time to wire in a switch.

Thanks again, much appreciated. :)
