Tan or "Brown" wires in all Volkswagens are ground wires. Depending on the length of this wire and if it has been tampered with or not, it should attach to a white connector behind the dash, just to the left of where the fan actually sits. This connecter may be attached on the backside of the dash itself. If it is longer it may have been wired to the common ground star prongs under the steering column. Hope this helps.

, If you are referring to installing a connector that you can use for a trailer hookup there should be a connector already installed a taped up under the van, near the left rear wheelhouse.

You will need a schematic of wiring diagram and a trailer connector (with wires) to know how to splice the wires in. Take Care, Greg
