In the fan circuit...You have a temp switch screwed on the radiator, a fuze and a relay in the fuze box plus a fan.  Swap the relay with another relay, replace the fuze.  The other fan should come on when the a/c is turned on.  If you fix the fans and it still overheats, you may have a BLOWN HEAD GASKET.  ALSO ARE YOU BLEEDING THE AIR FROM THE SYSTEM?  DO YOU SMELL EXHAUST IN THE COOLANT?

SOURCE: 1999 volkswagen beetle , a/c blow a little air on

Your a/c gas (134a) is too low, there is a safety feature for the a/c compressor to "kick off" if that gas (134a) is too low thus saving your a/c compressor from seizing up. Have a garage check to see how much is in the a/c system they can easily recharge the system for you. Keep in mind this is the simplest fix and most common problem from what you described.

98 Olds van, how does the high/low cooling fan work?

I'm showing three fan relays in the wiring diagram.
The fans are powered by two 30amp maxi fuses. The relays and fan motors are grounded thru the engine computer. The computer takes input from the coolant sensor and the ac control to decide when fans are needed. You would need to know if the computer is grounding the relays, and if not, why not. You may need a scanner to monitor computer output.

I have 1999 VW Beetle 2.0 have change all cooling fan parts all new relays sensors fans control modules and the temperature dash light keeps showing hot what could it be thats going wrong

connection to radiator fan switch could be bad.

If I take out the connector from the fan switch (thermo switch/fan control switch) that light acts just as you described.
So check the fuse box on top of the battery, take out the fuses and make sure nothing is melted. Now check if you are getting power to the switch connector. red wire is hot wire, 2 striped wires can be used as ground. Make use you get around 12 volts, not mV.

if you got no power there then try checking continuity in the wiring... you need power there to make thing work :D

The fan on my 2005 vw beetle has quit- could it be the fuse panel located on the car battery>

I am assuming you are referring to the cooling fan on the motor. If not and talking about inside fan jump to paragraph titled INSIDE FAN below. There are three fuse panels on top of the battery and one on the drivers side of car inside door on dash panel. Be sure and check the inside fuses first. There should be a fuse map card on the door to the fuse panel that tells you which location the FAN fuse is in. After that point look at the battery panel and the connections should have what appear to be flat silver pieces of metal flat on top of the battery, with wires connected on both sides. If you have a multimeter set it to continuity and test both sides to make sure power is flowing. Also check for corosion, etc. There are also blade fuses on top of battery that can be checked by removing and looking to see if they are blown. This would show as a burn mark and the metal would be seperated.

Not sure what makes you think its the fuse on the battery that could cause this issue unless somehow you see a defect or damage to this area. It is usually the last to blow unless exposed to water or left open, shorted, etc.

Second thing to be sure is that the car has reached temperature to cause cooling fan to kick in.

INSIDE FAN: If the inside AC/Heater fan has stopped working this is more than likely the fan control knob located in center of the three knobs. The left is temperature control knob for Hot Cold, Center is Fan speed, and Right is vent choice. Unfortunately the unit is a single piece and the fan control switch is not replaceable by itself. You have to buy the whole module. The left and right are cable actuated but the fan control is electric and can short out and cause fan failure total or not run at high speed, not turn off, etc. Suggestion is to search EBAY for your model and lookf for AC control, Fan Control, etc. I would also suggest a Bentley manual for your beetle as it is the BIBLE used by VW mechanics at the dealer to diagnose and work issues. If you fancy DIY on some minor repairs this is the book for you and has 1600 pages of very detailed troubleshooting and procedures, with pictures and is easy to follow. You can find them on ebay as well for about 80 dollars. Be sure and get the correct one for your model year

Good luck

2000 beetle coolant fans stay on, stop only when battery is drained.

coolant temp sending unit or fan relay is faulty. Unplug temp sender and if fans stil run, the fan relay is bad.

2000 Ford Taurus, V6, auto trans, new thermostat installed, still over heating, not sure if cooling fans are starting. Checked all fuses. Any ideas?

first i would check the cooling fan relays, when the temp gauge gets anywhere between over half and overheating you should hear the relays switch(it will make a clicking sound). but do not let the car overheat! Secondly the fans are controlled by the cooling fan temp switch/sender, this is located on the radiator, and you should check to see if the fan is getting power by using a volt-meter to check for the proper 12 volts. Finally if they still do not kick on you will need to replace the cooling fan motor(s).

Airconditioner fan quit working witch fuse should i check or do you know the fuse configuation for a 2000 bug

Must be blown thermal fuses on the fan housing. This is behind the glove compartment. Each speed setting of the fan has it's own, values are higher as the fan speed increases. Someone that knows basic electronics could replace the blown ones or replace it with OEM unit.
