I believe the temp sensor controlling the fan has gone bad. This not unusual, I had 2 other cars (ford ranger and PT cruiser) both wnet bad.
It is located at the T connection on the lower rad hose.
You will need to get under the car.
Unplug the wire to it and see if the fan stops when the ignition is turned to ON.

Buy another sensor and replace the existing one.

Vw passat 03 overheats when ac is on in peak traffic/stationary


since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.

Hi,One of the fans is the regular one , the other is an auxiliary one it should come one when you turn the air on . they must be working properly . leave the car runing with the hood open and wait till fan comes on , if it does not comes on you should have it check by a tech...good luck....
