2011 Jetta Diode Installation

0 votes
I am installing an Evo-All with a T-Harness and a bypass transponder in a 2011 VW Jetta with a standard key.  The directions are stating to install a diode if the vehicle requires push brake to start.  My vehicle does require this feature and I am trying tio understand how the diode is wired.  The T-Harness directions are the only directions that show a diode in this circuit.  Is the diode wired in series of the D2 wire (yellow/blue) at the Evo-all and the T-Harness?  Is the T-Harness bypassed on this circuit and the diode is installed in series directly from the D2 wire (yellow/blue) to the BCM B3 (Black/Red)?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Cut the yellow/blue in the t-harness. The wire on the red connector side connect to two diodes anode side. One cathode goes to the yellow/blue on the t-harness side and the other cathode goes to the vehicle brake wire.
