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 
few bucks.  

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 
when checking?
