Try disconnecting the fans from their power, you could have a fan shorting out the fuse, so try both fans, if it dosen't blow, then plug them in one at a time, until you figure out which fan it is. Otherwise, someone needs to check the top fuse setup, to make sure all wires are run correctly.

Test both the cooling fan relay and the fuse (located under the hood and inside the control module box).

For the inop blower fan, test the switch if the fuse checks out.

Fusebox location


Relay Center Cooling Fan Controller
  • Located behind the left side of the instrument panel.
Cooling Fan Controller Module
  • Located behind the right side of the instrument panel.
Cooling Fan Relay
  • Located in the air conditioning cooling fan control module.
Electronic Control Assembly
  • Located under the left side of the instrument panel.
Electronic Engine Control Power Relay
  • Located behind the glove box on the right side of the instrument panel.
Fuel Pump Relay
  • Located behind the glove box.
Horn Relay
  • Located in the fuse block.
Let me know if this helps. If not, let me know.

Circuit Protection The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering column.
Fuses are a one-time circuit protection. If a circuit is overloaded or shorts, the fuse will blow thus protecting the circuit. A fuse will continue to blow until the circuit is repaired.

Main fuse box located on driver's side to the left of the steering wheel, above the brake pedal.

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

2002 beetle turbo sport


Check the battery fuse box,, they are faulty and do not hold up to amps needed to run both fans when a/c is on... I had same problem and VW expert took a full 2 minutes to figure out since it's a very common problem... dealer only part, but you can replace it in 5 minutes... (if you look under fuses, you should see some partial melting of area where fuse contacts go in,,tell tale sign your box has failed)....
