2008 VW Jetta fan relay switch

Asked by Jul 11, 2016 at 02:55 PM about the 2008 Volkswagen Jetta S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My check engine light keeps coming off, then goes off. The code I received was in relation to the 'fan relay switch', but I haven't noticed anything odd: the fan DOESN'T run all the time, the car doesn't overheat, there's no odd noises, etc. Is this something that really needs attention and if so, what part do I need exactly and where is it located (I want to try repairs myself if I can). Please help!

Pretty simple fix. Go to your fuse box in the engine bay and find the fan relay fuse change it. Should fix your problem. Simple fix and you'll feel like a mechanic
