Question about Cars & Trucks
VW Fox 1998 1.6l Electrical module overheats within two to three km and cuts engine. I have tried replacing the module and the coil three times, checked the plug and spark leads, run the car on only battery i.e. alternator disconnected ( so no overloading problem from alternator) Still Clueless!
Start going through all of the body and engine grounds. look for any that are corroded or loose. Had a similar issue on a domestic vehicle. It had been at the body shop post my wife wrecking the car. The body shop left half the grounds off or loose. The thing was going nuts. Spent two days looking in, under, and around the enngine bay and found a body ground off on the lower firewall. The car went right back to normal as soon as I re-attached that one body ground.

I was going to say crank sensor, but you changed it. What have you done to it latley? Or did this just start? I kinda want to say PCM for some reason. Any welding done on the car latley?
