Fuse 43 Keeps Blowing

Post by Checkers » Aug Fri 03, 2012 7:07 am

So I've got the new radiator in the Beetle but now it won't run correctly because fuse 43 keeps blowing (Engine Controls.)
Looks like it's time to start searching for broken wires. Anybody have a Bentley?

Hey Stoney, I'm pretty sure Kody(aka AKRadar) has one from when he had his yellow bug. I'll find out here in a few

Here's a few items to check:

-Fuse 43
Clutch vacuum vent valve (if equipped)
Brake vacuum vent valve
Relays for preheating coolant (if equipped)
Crankcase ventilation heating element

What's this Beetle all about, I didn't know you had any VW's. :thumbsup:
