SOURCE: 2005 vw jetta radiator cooling fan wont shut off

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.

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

SOURCE: trying to find drain plugs for my 2006 Jetta. Its

if its leaking water is it coming from the sunroof or the heater core? if its the sunroof the drains don't have plugs but they do plug up and you can use air pressure to unplug them or a thin pliable wire they are located at the front pillars down from the sunroof but if you are talking about the heater core leaking into your car all you can do is pinch the hoses until you replace the core, you can use hose pinching pliers or vise grips.

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta No power on drivers door.

I have the same Problem. I Simply cut into the middle of the boot between the door and body The broken wire was right there, I pulled each end out and held the wire there with a pair needle nose pliers, stripped the end with a knife and attach a mulyi-strand jumper between both ends with electrial wire twists. Leave 2" approx. then slip the boot back over them. Use # 14 Wire. A Quick reasonable fix. If brakes again repeat again. The new Haness will have the same Problem down the road.

The drain should be on the left side (Driver Side) at the bottom of the radiator. It will look like a knob and has a hose connected to it. They are sometimes hard to see. I suggest you jack the car up and get a flashlight to see. Also, if you have the plastic side skirts in place the coolant is going to hit it and go everywhere so be careful or take the left side skirt off. You can remove it by using a torx bit to remove the bolt at the K-Frame and then just pull down off the studs. Hope this helps, if you need more help let me know, good luck.

How to know there is the right level of oil in the transmission of a 2006 vw jetta?

By using a scanner and opening the transmission drain plug and seeing if oil comes out.
ATF must be at a certain temperature for correct level.

Best left to a tech' who is VW specialist or VW dealership. ATF fluid is very expensive.

The procedure to replace radiator on 1999 VW Jetta is as follows:--- **Locate and remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator, and let the engine coolant drain into a resealable container. Then unplug the electrical connectors from the coolant fan and thermal switch.
**Then carefully detach the release lever holding the front bumper, and take off the radiator grille. Remove all bolts holding the front bumper and take off the bumper. Disconnect the temperature sensor connector and if necessary remove the spoiler.
**: Unhook the quick release couplings holding the coolant hoses to the radiator. Removing the screws securing the headlights and disconnect the headlights. If your Jetta is equipped with A/C, unfasten the A/C mounting bolts and the condenser bracket bolt on the left of the radiator.
**: Remove the radiator mounting bolts and slide the radiator and fan by sliding them downward. Don't disconnect any refrigerant lines, if your Jetta has an air conditioning unit.
**: Take the retaining clamps off the refrigerant lines and remove the bolts securing the refrigerant line from the side of the radiator. Be very careful that no hoses or lines are stretched or bent. Swing the radiator down and remove it from the vehicle.
**: Replace the radiator and replace and reconnect all engine and electrical components and the fender and bumper in the reverse order.
**: Then carefully fill the radiator with a mixture of half distilled water and half engine coolant. Start the vehicle and let it run for few minutes with the radiator cap off, in order to bleed air from the lines. Check the fluid level and top it off if necessary, then put on the radiator cap.
------Its done.

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

What is the proper way to drain the cooling system and what is the cooling system capacity of a 2004 VW Jetta TDI?

The capacity is 2- 2.5 gallons of coolant.
I would drain the cooling system from the radiator drain plug.

I would follow the owners manual for the instruction and fluid levels.

Radiator fan stayed on and drained the battery, why?

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...;-)
