Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
Twice now - I've had a problem with my daughter's car - the first time - car ran great to and from school. Took the car to a 4-H meeting - after the meeting - went to start car and it just did the "rrrr...rrr" thing - tried for like an hour - called the tow truck to come in the morning - tried one last time to start it - and it turned right over - with a big smell of gas. That was 2 weeks ago - has run fun since -- except yesterday - she took the car to and from school - got home at 2:30 -- at 3:00 I asked her to come and get me - and the car was doing the same "rrr...rrr" thing. We left it alone. When my husband got home at 6:30 - he tried starting it - still wouldn't start - he popped the hood and there was fan or something running under the "black" house that sits over the motor and the black plastic house was hot to the touch. Could this be some how over heating the motor and thus causing it to not start? Has anyone else had this problem? HELP!!
Sounds like the radiator fan might be staying on and not switching off causing the battery to drain when you're parked. Could be a defective fan switch or more complicated the wires going to or from the fan module or the fan module itself.
