Answers :

Sounds like the blower resistor fuse link has popped.(not sure where the resistor is on a Beetle,but it is on the HVAC assembly somewhere-it requires airflow to keep the resistors cool).Most of the time the resistor overheats due to low airflow,if you replace the resistor,change the cabin air filter too.

I have a 01' New Beetle my cooling fans come on high speed when the ignition is turned on and stay on while the motor is running. Have already changed out the coolant temp sensor, control module, radiator switch, and two wire switch between the radiator and the motor, I think it is the thermal switch. I think I have narrowed it down to whatever controls the #10 relay in the thirteenfold auxiliary relay panel, ALLDATA calls it THIRD SPEED COOLANT FAN CONTROL (FC) (100). If I disconnect this relay


I finally fixed the problem. It wasn't the Water pump, or the Fan switch or the Green Temp Switch or the Fan Control Module but the "BLACK" NOT White, 2 Pin Thermal Switch 112c" It does sit in between 3 collant hoses where the upper radiator hose ... 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

I have a 1998 VW Beetle I have changed the fan switch and the thermo switch, all the fuses are good, i put power to the fan motors and they run, but when I hook everything up and run it until it heats up the electric fans will not come on. Any ideas what could be wrong?

I have a 99 Beetle and the AC/Heater fan control does not operate. The 25A fuse is okay and not blown. I pulled the glove box off and checked the blower motor (with the resistor unit attached) but it doesn't seem to have voltage getting to it. Jumped it with 12V and it operates fine. I then unplugged the resistor unit while moving the fan switch in all positions and couldn't get a voltage reading there either. Could the fan switch be bad or are there other things I need to check?

2004 Buick Rendezvous - Heater/AC fan switch shorting out. I had issues with the switch working on only 2 speeds. I then replaced the resistor block. I then got all speeds except 2. The AC Light came on with #2 but blower not working. Also, the AC and other 'directional' switch didn't work either only worked for a 10-30 seconds. I then pulled the dash and found the switch burnt on a couple of pins. I replaced the switch and control head BUT now the fuse keeps blowing the moment of going from 0 t

Air Conditioning I have a 2000 VW Beetle. It has a 2 litre engine. I am currently having problems with the air conditioning. I had it checked out and the service person tells me that all components are working properly. He states that the problem could be with the relay switch. Can you tell me where the relay switch for the air conditioning is located? Checked all 5 fuses. changed fan control module. changed ambient temp sensor. clutch is good system is full.

1998 GMC Sierra. Blower motor works sometimes. No particular circumstances, just when it wants to. Checked all fuses, relays, even replaced the resistor, nothing. Followed the wire harness and found the two pigtails that others have mentioned. Took the wires off, black and purple, and turned ignition on. Getting around 11 volts on all sittings except for the highest setting, it reads 0 volts. The compressor turns on at the console, all the switches on the console work, just not the fan.


Could it be the blower motor it self? sometimes they have a "bad spot" when it is not working, can you hit it and make it run? pretty common on these trucks. the switch is also common. they often melt at the connector on the back making a bad connect ... 1998 GMC Sierra
