Question about Volkswagen Caddy
Cooling fans Dont come on and car over heats had a quick look at fuses and they are ok. any ideas or how much to get this fixed. Thanks
The cost is secondary
You need to diagnose the main issue & come
up with a solution, before cost comes in to play
Discuss the issues with a repair shop-that has been
in the same location for 25 years

This is most likely caused by a bad sensor in the radiator. I have never repaired this on a ford focus so I can't tell you where the sensor is located but if you find the sensor and then make a jumper wire and remove the wire from the sensor and jump the two wires together and turn the car ON (don't start the car) if the fan runs, the sensor is bad and must be replaced.

Most likely you have a bad thermostat is stuck and not letting coolant to flow to your radiator. check your coolant level if is normal replace the thermostat NOTE: if you live air pockets on your cooling system then also cause to over head when adding new coolant open the bleeder valve if you cant find it just add coolant whit the engine running when the new thermostat open will release the air pocket and you will see a sudden drop of you coolant level, then add more on till the radiator is full again. never drive your car for long is your engine is over heating that will cause a blown head gasket and mayor repairs. if your on the street and just notice than your car is over heating turn your A/C off set it on heating maximum fan max heat and of coarse roll down all your windows. it be real hot for you but that will save your engine. the heater core on your car is like a baby radiator and bypass the engine thermostat that will help to cooled down a lot . hope this help you and good luck.

SOURCE: cooling fan relay
megn, It's a shame the dealer wouldn't take the time to help you out (morons), I am having trouble locating a parts listing for the vw, because it's a newer model, listings are a bit more difficult to find, mainly because there isn't a big demand for parts yet, as the vehicle is relatively new. Most vehicles do have a cooling fan switch, which turns the cooling fan on as needed, this is controlled by a temperature sensor. Either one can fail, and cause the fan to run constantly, or not run at all. If you want to get to the bottom of the problem, and gain car repair knowledge that will help you deal with the 'morons' in the future, I would strongly recommend signing up for access to a reoair manual for your Jetta at 'alldatadiy'. There is tons of info and diagrams (for about $27 for one year access I believe). It will take time to look through the info, but it will give you the power of knowledge and confidence to deal with the morons. Well worth it. Good luck.

Check the fan itself for free turning--if it grinds or is hard to turn, replace the fan motor. The engine heat sensor reports temperature to the computer which turns on the relay and it turns on the fan motor. If you have A/C, turn it on--that should force the fan on all the time the car is running. If that works, then replace the sensor. If you don't have A/C, take a chance on the sensor--it's not too expensive. Wrap the threads with several turns of teflon tape when installing and don't over-tighten.
