Re: My headights wont come on, ac fans and turn signals dont work..IGNITION SWITCH?? (highwatt)

For a newbie, you've been reading up... it may, but the radiator fans are not affected by a faulty ignition switch.
Sounds of more of a relay issue or blown fuse; assumed you check those haven't you?
And the e-brake if completely off? Get back and post more details...

Re: My headights wont come on, ac fans and turn signals dont work..IGNITION SWITCH?? (bluefox280)

Not so mucha newbie as a frustrated owner...Thsi would be the thrid ignition switch that has gone into this vr6. the last effort to replace the switch ended up with me at larosn vw of tacoma (again) to replace, as you so astutely called it....relays.
The second switch was actually "melted" at the connectors, if thats the closest lingo I have.
I have replaced the MAF and the O2 sensors twice already.
If I had my gumption, lobbyist-style, I would garner some attention toward protecting consumers from NON-USER related issues, especially ones that frequently happen, even after warranty.
I APPRECIATE YOUR INSIGHT, ERIK. Thanks. And oh yeah, fuses are fine (of course they are!)

No, that the HVAC blower motor, much different from the radiator fans behind the radiator.

No, I read highwatt's post incorrectly... I was dealing with some cooling threads previously.
So, not the radiator fans, but the cabin blower motor... that's what was the miscommunication.
