Can anyone tell me where this wire goes. This is a picture of the coil pack wires of a 2001 Passat with 1.8L Turbo. I have been working on a crank but no start condition and I noticed that this wire is unattached. It is brown and on the wires going to the 1st coil pack I believe on the number one cylinder. I don't have a schematic yet so I can't look it up. Auto part Engine Vehicle Car Hood

That Brown wire is probably faded red and was likely the power wire to the coil packs, but as you say there is spark at the 4 plugs there must be another wire connecting the coil packs.
It would have been much better to keep all this in the original thread. (One thread for one issue)
