Switch is located on the driver's side, engine side of radiator about 1/3 of the way down from the top, next to the fan on that side. It is the only switch that has a wire going to it....and yes, they do go bad quite often.

On a 2001 vw cabrio,where is the cooling fan sensor?


The fans are controlled by a temp sensor that is screwed into the radiator. It is located on the bottom of the radiator, driver side. There will be an electrical connector with I believe 4 wires attached to it. This sensor controls both low and high fan speeds.

2001 vw cabrio radiator fan doesnt turn on


You should be able to jumper the relay to make the fan run. If you do that and the fan does not run, expect to find a bad fan motor.
If you jumper the relay and the fan runs, and the relay is good, the problem is in the computer or wiring to the sensor.
