You need to trouble shoot the problem, you can start by checking the fan fuse first, after that check the thermostat fan switch, and last check the fan itself by connecting it directly to the battery and see if it's working, the two first ones are the most likely ones to happen.

Why does my jetta a/c work the not work

Happy New Year. My name is Phil. My heater for my VW Jetta 1999 2.0 automatic doesn't work. The blower works but not hot air. Blows dirt and part of foam. Did I need a new heater? Or is there something else wrong? Also a clagging sound when I turn the car on but once the car is warmed up the clagging sound stops. The car runs good but worry about the clagging sound. Thanks.

1999 VW Jetta, it overheats even after I replaced the thermostat and the plastic housing on the drivers side of the engine (it was cracked). I let it run with the res. tank open because I thought it might...

With the symptoms you describe, coolant is not circulating through the system. Your first move to replace the thermostat was good. My next move would be to replace the water pump. Good luck.

2002 Jetta 1.8t. Cooling fans not working and AC compressor not comming on.

First thing you do is check fuses which are located driver side door side of the dash and 2nd fuse location is on top of battery
If fuses check ok next you turn on car allowing car to warm up and turn on the air condtioning full blast this should turn on both fans automaticly. Give time for car to warm up reach at half way mark on temperature gauge or air conditioning wont turn on fans automaticly if engine is to cold. If both fans turn on than your fans are not the problem. Next would be the cooling fan switch which is located on the radiator on the driver side lower bottom. It has 3 wires to it disconnect the switch and jump the wires that are parallel to each other and this should turn on your fans. Only if you give time for car to warm up reach at half way mark on temperature gauge. Its very important that the car is warmed up your guage should be reading half of the temperature gauge or none of theses tests which I explain will work. If the fans turn on when you jump the connectors than the problem is the cooling fan control thermal switch(costs $40)but if the fans dont turn on than I am sorry. Finally if all theses tests pass you have a real expensive problem or time consuming problem.

01 jetta overheating on the highway

The most likely cause of this is the fan not kicking on... and the best place to start looking is the fuse for the rad fan (under the dash). If this is good check radiator thermo-switch... Observe the engine as it comes up to operating temp... if the fan does not kick on by about 200 degrees, disconnect the terminals at the switch and connect them together briefly. If the fan comes on then the switch is faulty, if not then suspect the cooling fan relay. If the fan runs normally but vehicle still overheats, the next thing to check is the T-stat. Feel the upper hose when at operating temp... it should be warm... if not remove the T-stat and reassemble... if the problem goes away it was your T-stat, if not it is either a bad pump, or a restricted (clogged) radiator. If the pump is not noisy or weeping coolant, it's probably OK... Hope this helps...;-)
