Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
90% of the time with car and home air conditioners it is the capacitor that has blown. They are usually pretty cheap and in most cases easy to get to.
You may be able to find a step by step repair guide on the net. Locate the capacitor and remove it, but first remember or write down the wire locations first.
Once removed most all capacitors are flat on top and bottom and by design when they go bad they blow outwards like a dropped coke can. it will have a concave or bowing outwawd on one or both top and bottom. Also most ac repair shops will test it for free.
In my home I saved $180 - $350 changing it myself. The capacitor was only $50

If this isn't the problem the AC compressor relay may also cause this, flip a coin.
