I am having a similar problem with my fan... I noticed in the summer of 2013 only 1 of the 2 fans were running.. So I decided to order a new fan! Had it installed by PepBoys... This was early 2014.... Since then, my fan kicks on after my car is turned off! If I get out of my car, & lock it, & the fan doesn't turn on, as soon as I unlock the car, & open a door, the fan kicks on. It seems to be getting worse, & the Volkswagen dealership can not find the problem. They replaced the entire fuse box under the hood (because my wheel well cover was ripped off of my car, & salt got in a did some damage). Thinking that was the problem, but it didn't work!! I need help, & am out of options. (They said possibly the ECM, (Engine Control Module) but was not sure that would even solve the issue! -
