ok so i have this stupid problem that no mechenaics around here are smart enough to fix
but whenever the outside temp is over id say 70 degrees and the engine temp reaches the first line my 2nd high fan kicks in and is annoying the piss outta me. Any advice would be great i hate dealers
specially when they charged my $500 to get my damn cruise control working

Re: Retarded 2nd fan on 1998 jetta 2.0 PLEASE HELP ANNOYING (Joshefson)

Could be a faulty engine coolant temperature sensor... I know on the MKIVs this sensor also acts as the switch for the AUX fan.

Is there any way i could test it to see if the sensor is faulty or is the only way to replace it?? Another thing started happening today..with only turning to key to the on position without even starting the car my high fan is turning on which is even more annoying than while driving anyone with a bentley have any ideas?
