Question about Cars & Trucks
They should be in the power distribution box under the hood there. It's a fuse and relay block, carrying and distributing all the power from the battery and alternator to the whole vehicle. Several relays, some maxi-fuses, and regular fuses are in this box. The cover over it should have a diagram of relay and fuse location. You may have two relays there for the fans.

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.

The power for the fan comes from 2 relays in the
junction block on the left fender. One is a high fan relay 40amp the other is the low fan relay 20amp.
If either one is stuck, it will power the fan. Also if the
engine coolant temp(ect)sensor is bad, it can send a
false signal to the engine control module(ecm) and powering the fan. With the engine cool, if the fans still
running. Unplug the ect sensor(on thermo. housing)
if the fan stops replace the sensor. If not pull the relays one at a time. And see which one stops the fan. If none of this works it may be an ecm problem.
Hope this helps.
