Vanagon Hard Start / Hot Start Relay   Price: $29.50 + Shipping
Having trouble getting your Vanagon to start? This hard start relay is an upgraded version of the classic Bosch WR-1. Since it is designed specifically for the Vanagon, it includes the proper connectors to interface with your starter. No need to cut any wires or crimp on new terminals for your install.

With this relay installed, your ignition switch will only be used to trigger the relay, it will no longer have to carry the starting current. This provides a shorter path from the battery to the starter, which provides more juice to the starter.

Kit includes fully wired weather resistant 40A relay with gasket sealed inline fuse, complete installation instructions and all necessary mounting hardware. Fabricated with American Made 12AWG marine tinned wire covered in protective mesh sheathing to resist abrasion and damage from road debris. OEM style double crimp terminals ensure long lasting electrical connections.

** IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTE **: The hard start relay will not function properly in a Vanagon with both Automatic Transmission and Factory Cruise Control due to a relay conflict with the cruise control system. If your van only has either an Automatic Transmission or Factory Cruise Control, the relay will function properly.

It has recently come to my attention that running a hard start relay with the GoWesty Auxiliary Battery Kit or the GoWesty Gear Reduction Starter may also result in complications. If you have either of these products installed in your van, the use of the hard start relay is not recommended and must be completely at the risk of the installer.
