The brown wire is only on the coil pack cable for the 1st plug it is not on any other of the coil pack harnesses. I unplug the cable from the harness on both ends and ohm it out. I don't know what pin it was either 1 or 4 but it had about 40 meg ohm of resistance between the wire which is brown and the pin. the wire is single and not in with the other wires. I have been looking at u tube videos trying to see if any other 1.8t have a similar wire. It is definitely part of the cable assembly and it looks like it is original equipment.
