Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
My daughter has a 1999 VW bettle and my husband was driving to work to replace the cooling fans today when all of a sudden the car died. When he went back to pick the car up after letting it cool down, the car would not start, they tried jumping it and still nothing. I was told the other day while she was driving the car it overheated and it died then too, and she had to leave it on the side of the road tillit cooled off to drive it home. That is when we found out the fan on the driver side is not working.
You need to check the engine all over when the engine over heats it very hard on it and could melt wiring and plastic parts after you check that look at the relays if the fan is out one of the relays may be out and you would need to replace it

SOURCE: overheated 2000 vw beetle
does it sound like there is any compression. remove cover on the right side that covers t-belt see if belt might have broken. if cooling system failed could have blow fuse for cooling fans. causing overheating.

SOURCE: test radiator cooling fans
they should come on at app. 90 deg. celsius (190 F) .
It is a common problem with the beetle, the cause is a malfunction in the cooling control module.
The module is surveilled by the on board diagnosis system, so you should bring the car to the shop and let them run some tests with the diagnosis computer.

had replaced: both cooling fans, fan control module, coolant temp
sensor, fan switch, 4 terminal connectors. No trouble codes reported in
VW electronic diagnostic test. 2 different VW dealers and and my
mechanic threw in the towel. Any suggestions greatly appreciated."
This is a common problem with the VW..and no one has an answer WHY. (including VW mechanics)
THIS IS A RECALL ISSUE and should be implemented
