SOURCE: COOLING FAN STAYS
I think there may be a control unit for the fan near one of the front suspension mounts, but it may be a "stuck" relay in the main relay board. Unfortunately I don't know which one it is, but you could remove and replace them one by one until it stops!
If it is one of the removable relays you could try giving it a "reminder" by tapping it on a hard surface and hope that it frees itself.
Hope this helps you a bit. D.

fans and modules are kind easy to do but you will have to find someone in your area to do them... you might state what town and state yopu are in so people know.

Check for a switch at lower part of rad. Should see a wire harness & plug on a sensor at bottom of rad. This sensor/switch also operates fan on/off according to coolant temperature. You may need to disconnect battery to get at it safely.

I would venture to guess that, based on past experience, that the problem is more likely to be the thermo-switch in the radiator. Find what looks like a large plug in the lower part of the radiator it will have two electrical jacks. If you test this with a meter and there is continuity when cold, there lies the problem. If not then i would suspect a fused relay (pricier to buy). You would find it located just above the fuses... Hope this helps...;-)

Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight. Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet. Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down. Next disconnect battery cables. Hold those out of the way. pull battery forward and up. Install in reverse order. Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules. Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset. This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom. The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.
