2000 VW Golf Defroster, Vents, Stopped Blowing at any Speed

We recently started up our 2000 VW Golf after many days below zero here and not using it. It has not been run in 7 days, but on that day the system's ventilation system was working fine, all four fan speeds and heat was definitely generating.

I think heat is still being generated, now the fan simply doesn't come on at all, at any speed, at any position - defrost, dash, feet, etc. No air flow at all. All intake vents are clear of debris.

I had the vaccuum hose and serpentine belt replaced the week after Christmas and drove the car a fair bit since then. Appreciate any guidance, the dealer can't get me in for over a week.

Look in your owner's manual index and turn to the page about Fuses.  It will tell you where to find the blower motor fuse.  Use needle nose pliers to remove it, hold it up to the light and look to see if the aluminum strip inside is blown.  Replace with a fuse of the same amperage rating, it should be around 20 Amp, the numbers are stamped on the fuse.  Fuses are widely available at car parts stores and department stores Kmart Walmart ect.

Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!

VW Golf 2000 A/C and Fan Blower problem

In most cases, the problem related to blower and A/C switch lies with the fan controller relay which is fitted on the housing of the blower. It is a small circuit board and your fan is connected through this circuit relay and it controls the speed of the fan which further due to safety circuit controls the A/C. indirectly. Check that.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on

Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

2000 chevy astro cargo van. the heat registers on the gage but little comes out and only out defrost. thermostat????

If it is blowing hot air out of the defroster and not out of the heater vents then the door that directs the heat from the defroster isn't working properly it is blocking the heat from going to the heater vents. Also check the cold air door. It sounds like it isn't closing all the way to shut off the cold air and not letting the hot air pass.
