Polo fuse blowing, won't run.

4 posts in this topic

I picked up a 2004, 1.2 Polo for my Son, got it cheap as it won't run. Anyway I checked the fuses and found no. 37 (15A) is blown, the handbook says this is 'ignition electrics' and a quick google tells me it is for the ignition transformer.

 

I tried a new fuse but it blew as soon as the ignition is on, out of curiosity I tried a 20A and the car started up and ran for a few seconds until the fuse blew again.

 

Any ideas/tips for testing the ignition transformer or anything else likely to be causing the problem?

 

Would be nice if an easy fix because it's a nice car in good condition other than this problem.

 

TIA  +++

In case anyone was interested, turns out it was a coilpack, new one fitted and runs spot-on.    +++

Bit of a result then, nice cheap fix.

Indeed, especially as I got the car for £200 because it was a non-runner...
