Having problems with your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI ?

Hello..... I am having another problem with my 2001 vw jetta. 2 weeks my battery was dead when I got up to go to work. I had AAA jump start me and everything has been fine since Feb 15th.

  1. You need to have the battery load tested to determine if there are any damaged cells.

  3. The cooling fans shouldn't run longer than aproximately 2-3 minutes after the engine is stopped. If they run longer this could be the cause of the battery drain.

  5. There are 2 fuses that power the cooling fans circuit, start by pulling fuse #3 40A in the engine compartment fuse box near the battery. If the fans continue to run you may also have to pull fuse #8 30A in the same fuse box. ONLY use this as a temporary way to stop the fans if they are continuing to run longer than 3 minutes after the engine is stopped. Make sure that you reinstall the fuses before driving the car or it will overheat.

  7. If the fans are running longer than they should you nee to have the cooling fan control system tested.

Have the electronic fan module checked out. It can go bad and run during the night at different times causing to drain the battery
