SOURCE: P2181 code pulled. Driver side A/C fan not

The fan assy does come out of there. It's definitely a DIY job. I believe it's just 3/4 screws and the wiring harness. I had to replace a fan about a year ago and it was pretty simple, aside from there not being enough room in there for my hands. I believe the screws are T25 or T20 torx screws. Failure of a fan is pretty common on the MKIV VW's...

Check to make sure you have the green CTS (coolant temp switch). alot of cars had a faulty black ones. even the green ones are know to go bad. usually get horrible gas mileage and stuff like that!

SOURCE: I have a trouble code P2181 on my 2002 VW Golf,

this is a cooling system performance issue. You could get it diagnosed to be sure but 9 times out of 10 it a bad thermostat. Car is most likely running too cold when cruising.

My car is running codes P0011 and P2181. Can you tell me what that is please. 2004 vw jetta gl


P0011 - Camshaft positioning sensor
P2181 - Engine cooling temperature sensor.
If you have a repair manual (chilton/haynes/etc) these should be fairly simple fixes.
Camshaft positioning sensor for my car was $35 and took about 15 minutes to change.

2carpros.com suggested the P2181 is also fairly easy to replace

Were is the cooling Temp Sensor located on a 2004 vw beetle and is there anything special about replacing it. I have a P2181 code and that is the problem.


that code is for cooling system performance. which probably means you need to replace the thermostat. you can get free repair guides on autozone.com for this vehicle that will tell you where the sensor is

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON AND SO IS THE AIR BAG LIGHT


I recommend taking your car to your local auto parts store like AutoZone. They will hook up their diagnostic computer free of charge and generate your error codes. They can also decode the codes and tell you what may be the proximate cause. Same thing the VW Dealer will do for a charge of $65 (but AutoZone is FREE). One of the codes probably relates to a bad seal on your gas cap (try removing, cleaning and replacing). One of the other codes might be indicative of a bad oxygen sensor. They cost $20+, so you want to be certain before you start a replacement. There are between 2-3 oxygen sensors on your car.

Sorry I couldn't be more descriptive.

I have a 2003 vw beetle 2.0 and I went to Advance when the check engine light came on. The diagnostic tester said its a P2181 which I found out was a coolant temperature sensor warning, so I paid some...


The ECT sensor is right below the air compartment on the drivers side of the engine compartment. it is sticking up and should have some green on it. I don't have a picture right this moment but i will post one tomorrow. Also the P2181 error code is a Performance Malfunction in Cooling System. It can all be the radiator and or thermostat.
