Question about Volkswagen Fox
1998 VW Fox, module keeps overheating within two to three km! Have to wait at least 15 mins then all fine for another two to three km! Have replaced the module and coil three times, checked plug and spark leads and run car only on battery with alternator disconnected and module overheating persists!
I probably can't help you, but "module" is a very generic term and there are a lot of parts that are modules. Could you better describe the part? If you replaced it 3 times, can you give the name and maybe even part number?
