Customer Question
My 2008 vw passat...

My 2008 vw passat motor fan will not turn on

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a VW. The VW Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I let it run from cold start , it heated to 180 F no fan

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

No engine light too

Mechanic's Assistant: OK! The VW Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the VW Mechanic should know about your VW?

The air bag whent off not working and tearing wheel light stays on too and air bag light too
