Thermo Time Switch

Detailed Description

These are brand new units from VDO, one of the OEM suppliers. They have been discontinued for years and we are thrilled to have found a small supply. This switch triggers your cold start valve, telling it to shot some fuel into your engine when you start it in cold temperatures. (In warm weather the cold start valve isn't needed, as its name implies.) There were originally a few different versions of this sender, the only difference being the outside temperature threshold at which they kicked in, but they do interchange (and besides this is the only one still available). It engages the cold start valve when the outside temp is 67 degrees F or cooler. The only reason that's useful to know is that you may find that you need to hold the gas pedal down and/or hold the key in the start position a bit longer when the outside temp is right around that threshold.
