We are in the midst of renovating our site!

Our online store will re-open on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th with some exciting updates and improvements to your parts shopping experience.

If you already have an order in process with us, don't panic!

We are still processing and shipping orders from our warehouse as normal even while our site is offline.

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we are doing these site upgrades.

NOTICE

Order volume is currently high, and supply of many sought after parts/products is more limited than ever.

Please only continue if you accept that your requested items may not ship right away, and that shipment might be significantly delayed by unpredictable supplier-level backorder timeframes.

If you place an order request, we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days. Placing an order request effectively adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items.


Thank you for your business and understanding.

Bosch WR-1 Hard Start Relay Kit, 12V

Bosch WR-1 Hard Start Relay Kit, 12V


 
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 so well now we have this!

This part is virtually required on 6V cars, but it's useful on 12V cars with ratty old wiring too. As wiring gets old, the ends (near connections) oxydize and stop conducting electricity properly.

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 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 Bugpack version, this is the genuine Bosch part!

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