Golf 5 2.0 litre fans starts up even on cold start,keeps on running until ignition is turned off
When cold-starting or when starting my car,the fans starts working,only to stop when ignition is turned off.Took car to vw mechanic for diagnostig test,no error codes.
Do you have any idea??
Unless you have a complete electrical problem, the only time the fan should come on at start up is if the AC is on.
Hello Olivier, I am curiously if you solved the problem with fans which start up after the engine start. I have the same problem and I have no idea what could be wrong.
Has anyone solved this as I'm thinking to believe it can be the relay switch as when I knocked my fan it shuts off
Hello Craig, I changed both fans, temperature sensors, from alternator I changed the diode bridge and the relay an I have the same problem. In my case the command for fans to run is received from injection (engine) ECU.
