    Radiator fan will not shut off

    Just picked up a 2011 VW Tiguan 2.0t

    Got back into town and ran her thru a touchless carwash.
    Got it home tonight and the radiator fan ran for over 45 minutes wide open after I turned off the car before I disconnected the battery. The battery cable is off now until morning.

    Wet sensor?

    Anybody got any ideas

    yeah, 45 minutes seems a bit excessive. something obviously got confused. i would have tried to connect the battery back after a few minutes. regardless, it needs to get looked at by the vw tech at your dealership. even if it acts ok tomorrow.

    welcome to the VWOC and enjoy your stay.

    bring it back to ther dealer asap. Either you have a bad fan module or a coolant temp sensor failed/bad wire. Tell them the fan stayed on until the battery died otherwise theymay try and pull a fast one and say it's normal when, in fact, it is not.

    If small fan is working and large fan is not, you need the large fan. Large fan controls the small fan and the lg fan is also the module.

    Yeah I understand it was a big problem in the Tiguans when they first came out. We'll see how long it takes to get fixed and how much bi!*&!*$ I have to do to VW of America.

    I mean the wife and I love the vehicle, but in less than 24 hours of owning the damn thing this happens.

    YOu fall into the category of what is known as IQS, or inital quality survey. This is the WORST time for ANY issues on a brand new vehicle because corporations are rated on what this number is and they will do ANYTHING to fix your car ASAP.

    Not from what I read at the time (I've owned my Tiguan for over 2 years), the "problem" then was people "deciding" there was something wrong when the fan ran on for a few minutes (as it should). Obviously there's something actually wrong with yours but it isn't a common issue that I've heard of. Hope it all gets fixed pronto, the Tig is too good a drive to stay mad at for long !!!

    Thanks. I just remember reading on some TSB's that cst were complaining about the auxillary fan. Then there was a huge back order problem.

    Re: Radiator fan will not shut off

    Just got great news today. It was for sure the fan control module. They had a new fan (module is inside fan) overnighted. Once they fix it, it will be brought back to us by the dealership on a flatbed. Great service
