5KCSQ Turbo After-run Circuit/Thermo Switch
Thanks for the reply.
I've been observing this phenomenon since I've had the car on the
road, about 1 month now. It doesn't seem to kick on at all, no matter
how long you wait.
I decided to break down and order the switch, as I just doesn't seem
worth it to heat up antifreeze or peanut oil to see if I can save a
I guess I'll see if the new switch makes any difference. If so I had
two bad switches.
I'll post the QList and let eveyone know what I find out, or if I need
to trouble shoot from there - that is if there is actually a problem.

Well, you could heat up some pasta sauce "on the stove with the switch
in it while checking continuity". :-) But I'd think 1/2 pint of
peanut oil be easier and should work OK at 110C -- even much higher.
Of course I can't guarantee that the switch is rated to withstand
peanut oil environment, but I wouldn't worry too much about that.
BTW, on my '91 200q, the afterrun circuit must wait nearly 5 minutes
before coming on (after engine shutdown). How long do you wait around
