Having problems with your 2001 Volkswagen Passat ?
My coolant fan is stay on all the time - 2001 Volkswagen Passat
Not sure exactly here as not sure if this is american model which is different i beleave but i think the sensor in the thermostat housing at the front of the engine to the right ,if its the model iam thinking of then their are two sensors in the plastic housing the back one is the autochoke and front one is the cooling fan ,now no doubt iam wrong here as it could be a bigger engine used in the american models than our 1.6 petrol unless this is a diesel version but dont talk daft as only us europeons buy the diesel variant
Either you have an open circuit to the ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) or the system has gas bubbles in it from a leaking head gasket or an improperly done service to the cooling system.
