    Great idea to eliminate a very common failure culprit easily and cheaply.

    You do know that you can just test the Hall sensor with a multimeter?

    Do you have step by step instructions on how to test with a multi meter. I am afraid dont know how to use one and seems there are a lot of different ones available which also confuses me :) I do however have a test light which has been handy.

    Agree....a plug and play option is easier to use for those that do not know how to,effectively, use a multimeter.....hence the Sticky.;)

    Do not use a test light on electronics.

    Don't you have any old looms from wrecks?

    Part number could be 443 906 236
    The terminals are hard to find a part number.

    These were fitted to most VWs and Audis from the mid 80's to the mid 90's including T4s.

    https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/distributor-connector-housing.html

    I bet that you can still buy them from an Audi or VW dealer or Bosch or BMW, Porsche etc.

    Thanks to Syncro for making the tester for me and Cbus for supplying the plug. Great collaboration guys. I will keep it in my van so its on hand if or when I or someone else needs it.

    So it just needs a 9V battery to use?
