And you could have actually read the damn thread before you decided to swing your wang.ive done this before, tossed parts at it and nothing happened. you could have easily tested if it was the issue. take the plunger out and try starting it or taking a voltmeter to test it vs just putting volts to it lol. Hope it works but when it does not, i will be here to say "told you so"
Thank you! THAT is how you answer a question directly, and logically.To answer the OP's question, any Bosch dealer should be able to get you a geniuine part that will work. You can pay VW prices but you'll be getting the same Bosch part.
I wouldn't get a knockoff... even if it is redundant to the QA, if it sticks closed, the car can't start, so it's kind of not worth cheaping out on.
IDParts has the part for around $60 but I've seen it cheaper in several other places. https://www.idparts.com/injection-pump-shut-off-solenoid-028130135b-0330001040-p-1553.html
i don't care how many volts you have to the valve, it could still be good, just stuck , i read plenty good and i would NOT throw away any of those valves unless it had a failed coil and you can only tell that with an ohm test. im not forcing you to read, don't like it, too bad.And you could have actually read the damn thread before you decided to swing your wang.
Voltage was verified at the wiring....because step one is to verify that the required power is being supplied by the ecu.
When that was verified, the part was removed and tested out of the car to see if the plunger was actually working or not. It's not.
Perhaps if you knew how to test a solenoid you wouldn't have, admittedly, "thrown parts at it just to have nothing happen." I mean, which part of "voltage was checked" gave you the impression that the voltage wasn't checked with a meter?
I didn't ask for, nor do I need, your b.s. advice on if the part is good or not. I asked if anyone has any recommended places to get one as a replacement where the price is reasonable and the parts are known to be of good quality.
If you don't have any answer pertinent to the thread, kindly take a hike.
Blah blah blah...i don't care how many volts you have to the valve, it could still be good, just stuck , i read plenty good and i would NOT throw away any of those valves unless it had a failed coil and you can only tell that with an ohm test. im not forcing you to read, don't like it, too bad.
You done now, kiddo? Feel better? Get enough attention?Lol somone got the rage!
I didnt say all that. You did!
You never actually said you tested it other than with voltage. We cant read minds like you and voltage I assume is 12 volts but you never know! They wont actually work at much less than 12v so there could be issues with just putting some wires to a battery. You never specified. All I put out there was the "are you sure". Take it how you want. But you ain't Russlein my Jimmies. You quoted me, thus I get a notification that brings up the thread so it's like like I'm watching this like you might be ready to start a fight!
