The colour codes of the CAN bus wiring are:
- Powertrain CAN high wire Orange/black
- Convenience CAN high wire Orange/green
- Infotainment CAN high Orange/violet
- CAN low wire, (all) Orange/brown
Repairs to CAN bus wiring can be carried out either with sections of repair wiring with the correct cross section or with entwined wires “green/yellow” or “white/yellow” available from VW spare parts.
When repairs are performed, both bus wires must have the same length. When the wires (1) and (2) are twisted, the length of each complete twist must be 20 mm (A).
There must not be any section of untwisted wiring longer than (B) = 50 mm, for example in the vicinity of welded joints as shown.
Mark the area of repair with yellow insulation tape to make it easy to identify.
