    Are you sure it's hot, is the guage correct, is the engine cooling fan running when it is hot? Are there any coolant leaks? There is no way to help without more info.

First you have to check if the electric fan is coming on when it should,usually comes on at 160 f of temperature.If that is fine check the amount of water you have in the radiator. Also could be that the head gasket went,can you see white smoke coming from the tail pipe?If this info does not find your problem please give more information so I can help,good luck

Look in the fuse box for an ECM fuse. If it isn't in the box inside the car look under the hood in that fuse box. Once you locate the ECM fuse, replace it and everything should work as normal once again. Hope that this helps and good luck !

I need to know where the fuses are located on a 2001 Volkswagon Jetta

Open the Drivers door & look to the very left of the dash-on the end you will see a door. Behind the door are most of the fuses. There are some fusable links on top of the battery as well.

1998 VW TDI A/c not blowing cold air!

you may have a dampner issue with your climate control. the dampner is controlled by your Hot/Cold switch. if the dampner is stuck or not working you won't get one but the other. in your case maybe the dampner is stuck on hot, even tho the control says cold.
one possible solution may be a fuse... talk to a volkswagon guy and he'll be able to offer a suggestion or two.
