I just baught a 2002 jetta VR6 and beautiful condition, Love the interior, especially the blue and red lighting. what my question is ,is under the hood... On top of my battery... there is a black box, with like 4-5 cables running in it. pretty thick wires. i have no idea what anything is since the dealership didnt give me an owners manual. so i have no clue what it is. My only guess is to the monsoon system? Another question i had was the car alarm. Is there a sensativity setting where i can make it more sensitive so it goes off if something hits my car? and as far as the headlights, why do they suck so bad? it slike i cant see far at all. i even upgraded to an ultra white bulb. are my headlights just angled down to far? i was going to do a HID conversion to a 8000k. or just wait an save up for projector headlights. if anyone can help that would be great! thanks!

Congrats on the Jetta... Looks clean from what I've seen so far...

I'm not sure about the Wires from the battery... All I can think would be Positive, Ground, and Monsoon; but I never really put much thought into it. Hopefully someone else will chime in on this, but I'll see what I can find for ya.

For the alarm... From what I understand, if you want to have it go off when something hits the car, you would need to add a shock sensor to the system. Most people just opt for adding a 3-rd party alarm (Not VW) when going this route.

Headlights... I had a similar problem with mine. Are yours yellowed and clouded at all? I cleaned mine up with some headlight restorer (plastic polish basically) and it helped a lot. Currently, I am looking to switch out my stock headlights for some "E-Code" ones. They have the European-spec light beam pattern, and from what I have seen they light up the road better.

This box on top of the battery holds some fuses and I would believe would be the grounds as stated above.
