my cooling fan stopped working on my 90 GLI. There's no power to the thermo switch or the fan motor. Do the relays by the fan shroud control this or is there something else I should be looking for? Help please!

I believe those are for the A/C. There is a fuse on the fuse block that you might want to check. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Cooling fan (deroom)

still check the relay on the fan shroud.
i had the same problem on my 16v swapped jetta. happened out of nowhere one day. it just quit working.
my solution, after all else failed, was to plain and simple run the fan to a switch inside the car. i ran it to a stock fog light switch, b/c of the two postions the switch has. i use one for the low speed and one for the high.
it takes some getting use to driving that way, and making sure you keep an eye on the temp gauge, but now i wouldn't have it any other way. in fact, i still find myself looking at the temp while driving my 97' gti out of habit, and that fan works fine.
