Just thought is ask on here to see if anyone can help
Havent got the e46 now and got a golf to save some money but its got some problems
The day after we got it the cooling fan stopped working, old cars eh!
Anyway ive seen some threads about it on VW forums but im at a loss now really, seemingly its a common problem with these
I bridged the fan and it only worked on slow speed so ive replaced it with a new one. New radiator fan switch and coolant temp sensor as well and it still wont go on even when its been idling for AGES
The needle never goes above the middle but ive read this is not to be taken as gospel like
I was reading about the Fan Control Module so thought id try that next. Ive read to get to this you remove the battery, battery tray and then its screwed into a metal bit there or thereabouts but i cant find it. Ive looked from under the car as well but i cant see it or even wires or screws where its meant to be..
Im scratching the head about what to do now and would really like to get it working if i can like
Its just the 1.6 basic model with no AC etc and im wondering if maybe its in a different location on them maybe? Just dont know anything about Volkswagens..
Appreciate and advice guys
Mechanic across the road said it should be where i thought as well..
