Re: 2.0 16V TS hesitation
A bit of an update.... I have checked the fuse (replaced it) and can confirm it makes no difference. However, I have also discovered that it actually makes no difference whether the fuse is in or not, the car runs exactly the same! This makes me think that, whatever it is supposed to do, it doesn't work. I have just driven the last 100 miles without the fuse in the holder! I have put a DVM on the fuse holder terminals and it reads 14.4v with the engine running. Can you advise me which is the heater relay? The fuse is located under a plastic cover right next to the battery (assuming I have the right one). There are also two relays. Is it one of them??
While I was at it I decided to check the temp sensor. I unplugged it with the engine running. That definately made a difference!! The revs increased dramatically and the cooling fan kicked in immeadiately. Replacing the plug, the revs dropped again and the fan stopped. I think I can safely conclude that this works, I hope you agree!
