I just bought a 1997 Jetta 2.0 and had to replace the heater core.
As you may know, you need to take off the entire dash and unplug everything in order to get to the heater core. So I replaced the heater core, start to plug everything back in and voilà, no power to the car whatsoever.
I had the battery tested and it's 100 percent so I'm stumped here. The only plug I can't find a home for is a red flat single female plug. For some reason, I'm pretty convinced this is the issue. Any advice for a new Jetta owner?
