Having problems with your Volkswagen Beetle ?
My 1998 vw beetle keeps over heating ive replaced the therostat,fan switch and the temp sensor. it hasn,t over flowed the anti freeze the temp sesor in the car turs red and beeps and it flashes wwhats going on oh yea the fans for the radator wont come. but they do run but only when the air cond is running
The fans must come on before everything starts boiling. Is there another temp sensor besides the one you replaced? Did you replace it with a switch type rather than a thermal resistor type. The temp sensor should tell the computer to turn on the fans and the computer is supposed to turn on the fan relay and it turns on the fans. If they work with the A/C, that eliminates the computer output, the relay and the fans, and gets back to the temperature sensor.
