Check to see if the fans turn on when you turn the ac on. If not check the small green fuses in the main
fuse block on top of the batter especially the left one to see if the connections are burned.

They are good have a new underhood fuse box u think relay need replaceing
VW Mechanic: Danny, VW Mechanic replied 8 years ago
When does the car overheat? Just when driving or when in stop and go traffic. There isn't a relay but there is a temp switch in the radiator that may be bad.
