NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. We are now only fulfilling order requests for items that are able to be acquired within 3 weeks IF we are able to get them. Longer than 3 weeks backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled, and will be fulfilled in the longer, as-advertised timeframe.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you select the "3 week backorder fulfillment option", you can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently our response time to emails is slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even when we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

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
