Hard Start Relay Kit

Product Description

The Hard Start Relay is designed specifically for the 1980 - 1991 Vanagon and also fits the 1968 -1979 Bus.

Installing a hard start relay will remove most of the electrical load from your ignition switch when you are starting the engine.

After installing this relay, your ignition switch will only be used to trigger the relay and will no longer have to carry the starting current to the solenoid resulting in a shorter path from the battery to the starter and provides the starter with more juice.

There are two choices:

  • The Bosch it has a 30A fuse and the connectors are not sealed.
  • The Premium Kit has a 40A fuse and connections are sealed to protect against corrosion.

Note:  ***1986-1991 Automatic Transmission combined with the factory Cruise Control will not work with this relay kit.
