Audi VW X-Contact Relay (S4 Golf Jetta Passat)- KAE 443951253S

Relays can be a handy device in that they can help reduce the need for long runs of heavy and expensive wire, plus they help improve electrical performance, but when they are faulty, they need to be replaced.

In this case, the X-contact relay is used when starting your car. Because the starter requires such a large amount of battery power to start the car, the job of the x-contact is to temporarily disconnect all non-essential electrical while the starter is engaged to start the engine. This ensures all available battery power is available to start the car. Once the starter disengages and the car is running, all non essential power is restored, which is why the radio and heater temporarily shuts off as you start the car. If the relay is defective you run a higher risk of not being able to start the car when the battery is under stress, for example during very cold winter months.
