Question about Volkswagen Golf V Vw Scale Diecast Model

1 Answer

I have a 97 Passat vr6, and when I shut the engine off the cooling fan keeps running. It killed my battery, got a new one and as soon as I hooked up the new battery, the fan kicked on. Which is more likely that it is the thermostatic switch or the fan relay that is causing the problem? Or could it be something else

Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced,...


You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.

1996 Vw Passat GLS 2.8L; When I turn the engine off the fan keeps running and is draning the battery? What needs to be looked at?


The fan should still run if the engine is very hot,even after most cars are switched off. The battery may be on its last legs.Try this test, before you switch off the engine,put your heaters on full speed,open your windows if you cant stand the heat lol.This should help cool the engine and help shorten the time your engine fan needs to run to bring down the temp. If the battery is still draining,the alternator may be the culprit. This can be tested with a multi-meter.

2001 passat electric fan runs continously until battery is dead


There are extra cooling pumps that some foreign cars have that run for a designated time after the engine is shut off. I had a Mini cooper made by BMW that had it. If you hear it running for a while, but then it shuts off, thats normal. If it stays on for ever and never shuts off, I honestly don't know what to tell you

Electric fans runs after car is shut off, drains battery


Having the fan run on for a bit after the engine has stopped is not abnormal in itself, but 20 minutes sounds excessive.

If the fan does eventually shut off, I'd consider changing the thermoswitch (this is a sensor screwed into the radiator somewhere near the bottom, with a pair of wires connected to it - to change it, you'll need to drain the cooling system).

If the fan stays on continuously until the battery is completely flat, see what happens when you unplug the wires from the thermoswitch. If this stops the fan, you need to replace the thermoswitch. If it doesn't, then you need to examine the wiring associated with the switch and the fan, looking for damaged insulation.
