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

As far as the crank no start condition .. Do you have any codes / cel light ? Could be something simple like a sensor. Crankshaft or camshaft sensor ..
Pop off the timing belt cover and check the timing belt too .. Could very well be the timing.. Check that before you keep trying to start it.. What's the history of the car? Was it running before you got it ? A compression test would reveal a lot too.. I usually rent a tester from a local auto parts store.
