Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
A bad fan relay or a bad sensor that puts the fan on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. Otherwise the fan is supposed to run when the temp reaches certain level and runs till the engine cools to a certain level if the key is in the start position irrespective of the engine running or not.

Have the thermostat checked,or replaced.The coolant sensor ,replaced,and bleed all the air out of the cooling system.The fan cooling fan relay should be good,because the fan is coming on like you said,just not when it needs to.Changing the thermostat,and the coolant sensor,will keep you from having to bleed the system over again,and chances are they need to be changed.I hope this information helps you,if so let us know,please,thank you.
