    I suspect this is the problem. The car belongs to my daughter-in-law. Could you possibly tell be where it is located and what it looks like. I found what looks like two relays under a plastic cover on the drivers side firwall in the engine bay. I believe one was black and the other yellow.
    Thanks, Bob

Check cooling fans not faulty - run freely.
Check the operation of the cooling fan control relay.
Replace relay, and observe if this fixes the problem.

On my 2001 gti vr6 are both the fans suppose to run at the same time i noticed today that only one is

Yes, in my experience both fans should run at the same time for maximum cooling efficiency, otherwise the car may overheat over a long interval of running in hotter weather and lower vehicle speeds.

Good luck on this repair.

2001 VW GTI VR6 alarm goes off randomly... make it stop

could possibly be a faulty latch. door latch, trunk latch, hood latch. something sporadically not recognizing a closed latch to cause it to go off sporadically. a scan with a vw scan tool or a vag com should detect a fault in the convenience system.
