I have to say, http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to VW for this nifty little idea. I love knowing that my car is being cooled down even after im done driving.
But it doesnt come on all the time, what is it that makes it come on ?
Can i make it come on more often ?
I was just pondering this while being bored

Electric radiator fan/s with a Thermo switch. The Thermo switch senses the temperature of the water and if it's hotter then the switch setting the fan will run (Example:180, 190, 210 degrees settings are common). Some newer and many older cars without transverse engines have the Radiator fan running directly from the front of the engine through a fan clutch that senses temperature. (like an old V8)
