Fans running until battery flat

Postby davebradsre » Fri Mar 03, 2017 5:59 pm

I have a 2010 2L petrol TFSI and when I stop the engine the fans will kick in (maybe not immediately) and both run at full speed until the battery is flat, any ideas? Help appreciated.

Sounds like a faulty fan control module.

Thanks for the quick reply, is that part of the fan assembly?

You can also do an output test on the cooling fans with vcds. Test if they stay on with this test also. And perform a fault scan.
