Starter relay (J53)

From Golf Ecomatic
Jump to: navigation, search

This relay is supplied with power from the Digiswing controller which activates the starter motor. This is what makes a ticking noise twice when the engine restarts.

When I replaced this switch on my Ecomatic, I noticed the relay does activate marginally (tenths of a second) faster compared to the old relay.

Effects of failure

Vehicle can not be started. Tow starting may be possible.
