If the fan relay in the fuse box is ok try to jump the fan itself off battery if this works try a coolant temp sensor.

2004 vw jetta is over heating. already checked thermostat and sensors. any suggestions? 2.0 engine


Is the fan kicking on? Radiator fan! When engine gets hot, radiator fan should kick on under the hood.
If it does, then there is a blockage in the radiator preventing it from circulating the coolant to dump the heat. Get a Rad flush.

If the fan does not kick on, then check the fan fuse and relays, usually found in an electrical distribution box under the hood. Consult your owners manual for its location and specific fuses / relays.
Possible bad fan too.. but disconnect the fan at the plug in the wiring, and test supply wire for voltage, when engine is above normal temperture.

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.


The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot

If you have done this already,then bleed the cooling system,this is all you lack,just get the air out of the system,two bleed ports,one on the thermostat housing,and one on the engine near the water pump,just bleed them out as the car warms up,the thermostat bleeder last,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Only my passenger side fan activates at about 197 degrees according to the climate control diagnostics. The driver side fan never activates. Is this a malfunction? My temperature gauge gets awfully...


I don't know the specifics of your car but one of my cars has two fans but one only operates when the A/C is switched on. I don't know what you are referring to with climate control diagnostic? That same car of mine almost gets too hot before it kicks on. Maybe someone with a car like yours could answer that.

Car is overheating, Fans wont turn on


First are you sure the fans are good. Unplug the fans and hook directly to the battery and see if they turn. One fan is for the engine and should come on when the car gets hot. The other generally comes on when the a/c system is on. If both fans work hooked directly to the battery they are good go to the cooling fan switch or temperature switch (same thing different name) and make sure it is good. This tells the fan to kick on when the car gets hot. The other one kicks on when a switch on the a/c system tells it to kick on. Check and make sure you are getting power to the fans. Get a test light and ground it to a good ground on the car and probe the plugins going to the fans and insure there is power coming to them when the car is running. If no power fuse is bad or the sending unit is bad.

I have changed my thermastat, but my car keeps getting hot if its just idling or i am driving slow. The fan does not seem to be kicking on. is it a relay or the fan?


Hi my name is mike ! when your just idling your fan should come on after a few minutes ,if the temp is going up but no fan kick on then you have a blown fuse to the fan or a relay not working ,or a bad fan possibly .hope this helps ,let me know if you have more questions

My radiator cooling fan won't kick off and run when the engine gets hot and the a/c is on or ever for that matter. Fan was replaced and still won't run. When I turn on the A/C, I have power all the way to...


Sounds like a bad relay to me. If you jumped the fan to the battery and they kick on, then the motor is obviously good. Replace the high and low speed relays with known working of the same type while running your a/c on high and on low. If they kick on now, you just need new relays. I'd imagine they're not kicking on when the engine is hot because of the relay rather than the sensor.
