    I sure did. No problem there. Also, my thermostat gauge only works half the time.... So I wonder if there is a connection problem, since the ACtoggle has gone out... along w/ the ac fan

    Hi There, Yeah I have a the V6 '99 Passat and I have the same problem that just happen eventually. The fan switch stopped working and sometimes the A/C light turns on and off when pressed it but A/C not working at all. Then later on, either the fan turns on or the A/C and then it stopped working....Is this happen because the fan switch burned? I haven't check the fuses yet, you think its from this?

The AC fan on my 2013 Rav4 will not operate. It worked fine earlier in the day.

If you can check power to the fan do that. It could be the fan or the relay which sends power to the fan. I have had relays that would get hot and drop out. If the fan works and sometimes doesn't you can just see if the relay is real hot. That would be a indication the relay is bad.
It is a simple video but the truth is In the last 20 years 90% of all my vehicle problem have been electrical. Check code if you have them. check fuse and relay.
If your a/c only works on the high fan setting it is a good indication it is the resistor. Make sure when you turn your a/c on one of the radiator fans comes on. Make sure the clutch starts spinning on the air compressor when the a/c is turned on. A/C will not come on due pressure switch is Freon is low . Hope something in this helps you.

overheating at idle , stop lights , slow moving traffic or hill work indicates a fan not working problem
if viscous fan hub drive off the water pump -replace the viscous hub r if electric fans check the coolant temp sensor , 2 fuses and fan relay and fan itself
of course you could have the fault codes read to see if there is a air/fuel mixture problem

The AC fan in my car (volvo s40-99) does not work

If you are talking about the blower motor fan,inside the car,look for a blown fuse,or a bad fan relay.The blower motor relay could be mounted near the blower motor,or in the relay box,look for the lables to guide you to it.If the relay,and the fan are fine,then replace the blower motor.

Fan problems!!!

Is there a separate control module for the fan or is it inbuilt in the fan assembly itself? Check the power to the fan, if there is power there then consider trying a new fan if not check fuse before trying to locate fan control module.
