  1. Past hour
  2. Good point I could be unwillingly building a small pond for them to sit in - I will probably will just 3m tape to battery inside my thermo battery bag.
  3. The problem with sealing the relays inside anything is once water gets inside it just makes matters worse with condensation unable to escape? id just secure the current relay set up to the battery with Velcro or sticky pads and make a deflector plate to stop water from the grill soaking them in a downpour. Heat from the engine and airflow from the grill should keep them dry?
  4. Today
  5. I might have to get one of them zip bags !
  6. Just get a waterproof/sealed electronics project box that will fit the relays, and then you cut a hole in the side for a special wiring grommet that is weatherproof - RS Electronics or similar should have all that. One end of the wires will need to be disconnected either way - to be honest, first loom I had I just put them in a ziploc bag beside the battery, and that worked just as well!
  7. So have just purchased this for the inline fuses cant see why it should not work. 4 WAY 12V INLINE BLADE FUSE SIDE HOLDER BOX WITH LID + 4 x 20AMP FUSES FU23 | eBay So lets see some good ideas for the relays to be waterproofed members 😀 Or is this the only real solution to buy this and get the cables out the existing relay housing holder? Still the the rears of the cables into relays will still be open to elements . Quality 4 Way Relay Box Holder for Standard 12V 24V 4 / 5 Pin Automotive Relays | eBay Thanks
  8. Hi everyone, Electrics are my weak point to say the least but I know the 3 way fuse and the ralays are open to the elements on this loom so Im looking to waterproof these area . The last picture I have seen on ebay I cant find a 3 way but will that work 4 way water proof box ? Link below. The relay section measures 9.5 cm long x 4 cm wide x 8cm with cabling. - I imagine I would have to cut the box and tape one side ? Anyone have a link for a suitable box ? Thanks in advance. Would picture below work for the inline 3 fuses ?
  9. No 25 on diagram shows you variations . there are some specific to abv and air con and chassis number. Please not this does not apply to RHD vehicles as were added aftermarket at dealers . If your is a LHD and factory fit then your fan controller does not mention air con off etka whereas there are x2 that do specific to ABV code. You need to state more information about your car- AAA ?

  10. Yesterday
  11. I will look tomorrow. I don't think the FCM is different as the Diavia stuff kind of piggy backs on to it. Leave it with me..... Does seem a shit of a problem
  12. Thank you guys. I am really considering doing the aftermarket fan setup, my only concern is since I compete in a stock class, I think someone could protest it since it could be argued to be performance enhancing. Im gonna take the time time to read through that whole thread but its possible to run aftermarket fans and retain full function of the AC?
  13. I'll get a pic of my FCM shortly and post up Hasan
  14. Fla and Cressa have Air con, I wonder what FCM they have. Guys?
  15. Mine too is a 1992 VR6 that now runs with a coil pack amongst other things. It doesn’t however have AC and has never had it., It has the latter part number FCM you mention as shown in the photo I would think your fan melt down messed your FCM up. I would replace that the fan and the rad sender. You may struggle to get a fan though as they are NLA and consider some aftermarket fans, cowling and wiring. The thread below gives lots of ideas on this. https://the-corrado.net/topic/86596-slimline-fans-wiring/?tab=comments#comment-1027876 Cheers
  16. Last week
  17. ok, time to add my problem to this thread. 1992 VR6 5spd with AC. Problem: Have gone through 3 fans in the past 2 years. 20amp fuse on FCM intermittently blows. Cant get it to blow predictably. Past fixes: -Replaced bad Corrado 4pin motor with new passat 4pin motor that was professionally swapped into the Corrado motor housing. Worked great for a year, then burned up (literally). This is also when the fuse started blowing. The AC compressor wont turn on if the fuse is blown. -Replaced with 3 pin fan motor. Had a race that weekend and that was the only fan available on such short notice. -Fan no longer worked predictably when the thermoswitch was plugged in. Unplugged it and plugged a toggle switch directly into the harness for the thermoswitch. --fans turn on/off with toggle switch, but the afterrun will work correctly after the car shuts off. -replaced thermoswitch (twice) and even manually checked thermoswitch with hot water and a multimeter. -replaced crack pipe, thermostat and housing, and all senders. -fan still wouldnt turn on unless the toggle switch was used. And fuse still randomly blows. --eventually afterrun stopped working Now: the fan wont turn on at all, even with the toggle switch jumping the leads to the thermoswitch. So bad motor, but Its probably just a symptom of another problem. My attention is now on the FCM, but im questioning if the correct one is even in the car because the previous owner seemed rather careless when it came to repairs. The one in the car is 357 919 506. Is has a blade fuse, 5amp fuse, and 20amp fuse. All research indicates this is the FCM used in later VR6s which this is not. From what I've read and advice I've received, the correct FCM is 1H0 919 506? But that one has only a single blade fuse.
  18. It was stuck partway open. I did try to clean and lube it, but that only seemed to work once for a couple weeks and did not work again. I ended up purchasing and installing a 2.9 IACV as fendervg suggested. It immediately fixed the problem, but the car tends to idle high now(around 1200 rpm). Periodically it will drop down to normal idle, but only after its warmed up, and only sometimes. I've adjusted the throttle cable damper which seems to have dropped the rpms a little, but now my fan motor stopped working again, so I cant test the idle stuff extensively until thats sorted.

    Indicator Relay

    ah yes. perfect. Thanks
  20. I’ll have to dig through my spares and find a clicky relay then, car has been SORNed as I’m working away through the weeks now but it’s added to the list of winter jobs 👍
  21. It should click, also indicators should work if it is slightly held down. I’m not sure if the click comes from the relay or the dash cluster. I retrofitted comfort indicators with a new relay, so you get three or four blinks after pushing the stalk and letting go.
  22. While on the subject of indicator relays, I wondered if I was getting forgetful as mine has been silent this year and I’m convinced it used to click when indicating before. Is it just my age or do everyone else’s click? I’ll find a replacement if so!
  23. got the relay off of EBay mate, says it’s an electronic one. I swapped my front and rears to LEDs and left the side repeaters as were. Front and rear alot brighter than before and seems to flash at the same speed. Probably works no matter what bulb or maybe even if 1 or 2 go out it stays the same I’ll have to check it out. Cost £20 for 4 bulbs and relay. Plug and play bargain Last post one my thread. https://the-corrado.net/topic/86361-my-money-pit/page/8/

    Indicator Relay

    Shaun? This looks interesting. Instead of using a load resistor on the rears with Leds, it would be great if it were automatically managed by the relay. Any info on which one to get? And does it work if only one set of indicators are LED or will they all need to be swopped? Or if only the fronts and rears are swopped? Thanks. Hasan

    Indicator Relay

    Will be at gsf very common part mate throughout vag
  26. Yeah, there doesn’t look to be owt special with them for sure. I just needed one today as I want to take her for a run to the coast this afternoon while the weather is good. Otherwise I’d have been on eBay. I’ll probably do a google for all the relays to keep a spare in the cupboard so I don’t end up in a rush next time [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Indicator Relay

    Just google the part number on ebay loads of Bosch and hella options . I have change all mine and put on white number decals on them for id like factory .
  28. Yeah, that’s quite probable re the revised part number. Got one from GSF which should be in at 12, Halfords had naff all other than bog standard relays. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Indicator Relay

    Its probably been revised, the parts guy can’t be arsed to look up for the revised part number. I had the same issue with Audi a few weeks ago for a TT CV boot, it’s the same as MK5 golf apparently I’ll bet Keyo will find the new part number with ease
