I have a 2001 1.8 GTI, and chasing some electrical gremlins. Everything works until you either flash the high beams, or put the high beams on, then the engine either reduces to 1100 rpm and won't rev or drop below that, or it will outright stop. After that, there is a no crank condition but all lights work and all interior electronics work. Pulling the battery cables off seems to reset it and then the car will start again.

The only recent work done is replacing the headlight bulbs on the passenger side. During that, all the insulation was brittle and cracked and all wires were rewrapped with electrical tape. All lights work correctly with the car not running.

Any place to download wiring diagrams, or have any suggestions?
