  Hmm.... All I can offer is that on my '98 Jetta TDI, there is a small
yellow wire in the harness connector that plugs into the back of the
headlight switch. It is, if I remember correctly, the only all-yellow wire
there, and it is noticeably smaller in gauge than the rest of them. If it's
connection to the switch is lost in some manner, the DRLs cease to work.
Somehow a piece of Scotch tape found it's way over the male connector on the
back of the headlight switch.  :-))  VW tends to have a sort of continuity
between years and models in many aspects, so perhaps the small yellow wire
is what you're looking for. None of my A2s have DRLs, being US-spec.
