Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11
Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11


 

Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11 does NOT work on 6V cars! 40 years ago VW guys had a tough time starting their 6V VW's on cold mornings, and with some thinkin' they used a VW Horn Relay to bypass the run from back-front-back with a factory relay to shorten the voltage trip. It worked well and was the inspiration for this in a 12V version. This Relay Kit is 1/2 the price of the Bosch WR-1 version!


Furthermore, in the factory VW wiring arrangement, the power goes from the battery (under back seat or in rear of car), then forwards to the key, then back to the starter. THAT IS A LONG WAY!

The combination of the old wiring and long run The end result is that your 12V starter only "sees" ~9-10V, and it's no wonder they don't work reliably! The installation of these kits will really help stubborn starting problems!

This "part" is available in both genuine Bosch and the generic version, the generic one is 1/2 the price of the Bosch!

As with many other products, ACN carries multiple versions and quality levels of many parts, depending on what your needs and budget allows.

Price: $17.95
