Yes...I still need help. The beetle is sitting up on blocks in my driveway so I can get underneath it to work on it. What other info do you need?
the date stamped is 01.01
Yes...all fuses and fuse links on top of the battery are good. One of the terminals on fuse #3 is discolored at the base, but there is continuity between the other side of the fuse and the wire coming out of the plug connector.
I must have a loose connection on the red wire. The 12 volts is there on the wire...but on all the stress I put on the wires getting the cable shield of to check the wires...all of a sudden the fans work! Would you recommend I change out the thermal switch just to be sure?
Will do!! Do you have any idea where I might be able to pick up this switch on a Sunday? I've discovered it is very hard to find parts for a VW at most auto parts stores. I'm pretty sure the VW dealership is not open on Sundays here in Dallas.
Thanks for your help! You are a lifesaver!!
