this sounds like a thermostat fault, but also could be the sensor switch to the radiator but is more likely the thermostat, it should be located at the front top of engine, follow the top water hose to the engine and you will find the thermostat housing, also just a heads up, these had a problem when first made, according to the known fixes and problems with VW's the hoses corroded inside and started loosing water, this could be wise to get the system presure checked to...hope this helps

SOURCE: polo classic 2002, would it run without a

Yes but that wouldn't help if you still have an over heating problem. To correct the problem, you need to replace your VW OEM plastic impeller water pump to an aftermarket metal impeller water pump. Plastic cracks at the shaft which the pulley drives and spins slower than engine speed or not at all. It's also a good time to do a timing belt service when you do this because it has to be removed out of the way to get to the pump.

VW Polo Classic 1.6 Radiator fan not going on


Try moving the fan blades by hand to see if the fan spins freely to see if the problem is frozen bearings in the fan motor. Replace the fan motor if it doesn't turn. If it spins freely disconnect the wires and hook the fan directly to the battery using a jumper. If it runs the problem is most likely the thermostatic switch. If it doesn't the fan motor is bad.
