There are 2 components that control the fans on these cars. There is a thermo switch in the bottom of the radiator and also a fan control module, which is located below the battery. It has 2 10mm bolts holding it in place and 2 connectors going to it.

Fan is not coming on in my 2001 VW Beetle. Checked fuses and all are ok. Where do I go from here?


Bad fans are common. You can either turn the AC on to see if that will trigger them, or jump the thermo switch at the bottom of the radiator.

There is also a fan control module located in the area under the battery, but diagnosing this is difficult.

How do I change the headlight on my 2005 VW Beetle?


There are two spring clips located under the hood around each headlamp housing. Open both clips and extract the headlamp housing from the front of the car by pulling the plastic assembly by grabing the edges by the black rubber seal. The entire headlamp housing will pull out from the front bumper enough to allow you to change the bulbs. Repeat procedure and clip the spring clamps back in place.

1998 Volkswagon Beetle - Overheating


Hi,

To my knowledge, the thermal switch is normally located attached to the radiator. This senses the coolant's temperature inside the radiator and upon reaching a predetermined level switches on the radiator fan. Further, to my understanding, either the A/C or the heater must be engaged for the fan to activate.

As to your other concern, overheating; In my country, most overheating issues on Volkswagen models are resolved by:
  • entirely removing the thermostat (not applicable in cold regions);
  • wiring the fan to switch on once the engine is running (with or without the A/C or heater being turned on);
  • replacing the radiator thermal switch for the fan to a lower temp.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa
