I bought a 2005 VW Beetle that I knew needed some work. I had the codes checked and it had an issue with the camshaft sensor so I ordered everything i would need but when it all came in and I went to begin the work I noticed the wires had been pulled out of the the plug that plugs into the sensor. I ordered a new plug but the wires are different colors than the original wires and I have no idea which wire goes where. The wires on the car are Brown/Blue Green/Yellow & Green/Violet

The wiring diagram shows:
Pin 1: violet/red
Pin 2: violet/yellow
Pin 3: brown/blue

Hope this helps you figure it out!

If you are missing the terminal ends that go into the cost plug; you can get repair wires with the terminals already crimped on the wire, at your local VW dealers parts dept.

I do not have any VW dealer near me. I ordered a new plug off Amazon but the wires on it are red, green, and black. I just need to know which colored wire on the Beetle should go to each socket so I can splice on this new plug.

Ok with the new plug; you have new terminal/wires already installed and just need to splice it in. Maybe red99 can orient you as to the specifics; if you look at your old plug; many times the terminal position number is marked on the body of the plug and that can help orient you, then transfer the positions to the new plug. I have a 02' 1.8T; so, it is probably different. Maybe someone with the same car: can take a photo and confirm the pinout for you?

Did you look at the old plug/connector; are the terminal numbers marked on the body of the plug? Some are and some are not. My maf plug; had numbers on it.

Ok, just match them up to what red told you and transfer the positions to the new wires/plug and splice them in, using butt connectors. I use the 3M Electrical Connectors Heat Shrink Splice Connectors; I got mine, in the automotive parts area at Walmart. This style connectors; seal out water and corrosion; they work excellent.

(corrected pin and wire color below):

This diagram of the plug; should help orient you: pin 1 is positioned with the square part of the plug and pin 3 in son the round part:

I found the wiring diagram below for a 2005 2.0 New Beetle on the Autozone website. It looks like the correct pinout is:

Pin 1: green/yellow
Pin 2: green/violet
Pin 3: brown/blue
