Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
I took my car to auto zone after my check engine light came on. they told me that i had a problem with my cooling fan relay but they didnt have the part or know anyone who did. i called the dealership and asked them about the cooling fan relay but they said they had no idea what i was talking about. where can i find the part to fix my car? thanks!
Megn, It's a shame the dealer wouldn't take the time to help you out (morons), I am having trouble locating a parts listing for the vw, because it's a newer model, listings are a bit more difficult to find, mainly because there isn't a big demand for parts yet, as the vehicle is relatively new. Most vehicles do have a cooling fan switch, which turns the cooling fan on as needed, this is controlled by a temperature sensor. Either one can fail, and cause the fan to run constantly, or not run at all. If you want to get to the bottom of the problem, and gain car repair knowledge that will help you deal with the 'morons' in the future, I would strongly recommend signing up for access to a reoair manual for your Jetta at 'alldatadiy'. There is tons of info and diagrams (for about $27 for one year access I believe). It will take time to look through the info, but it will give you the power of knowledge and confidence to deal with the morons. Well worth it. Good luck.

Obviously you have met an idiot and believe me there is plenty of them out here. your cooking fan relay is something you can buy from the dealer and not the auto parts store.
what you can do is go to the auto parts store and buy the technical manual and once you find out the location of the cooling fan relay just go to a local salvage yard or a u-pull-it yard and most like it will cost you $1 and all you have to do is just find a VW or a similar model to it within a 2 year difference and just pull it out and you will save at least $20-$30.
