Cooling fan
« on: October 21, 2020, 12:20:31 PM »
Afternoon all. I've had a long term problem with the cooling fans. About this time last year I noticed only the big cooling fan would run and not the smaller one. The quickest way to to sort the issue was to replace the whole fan assembly with 2 new ones. Job done so I though. Both fans now work which is great but sometimes if I was to start the car for less than a minure or 2, hot or cold when I turn off the fans come on full blast. I also run a 12v Halfords cool box for an hour,  twice a week. I've noticed if I plug this in with the engine off the fans come on within about 5 to 8 seconds. Could this be a battery problem?

Evening all. Still got this fan problem. Any VW techs got any advice? Now the clocks have changed the problem is worse. I've had to be jump started 4 times when I forget to turn everythig off before leaving the car.
