Hi all. My daughter drove me to this forum. It appears to be a good enthusiest's forum for this vehicle so I hope someone can provide some direction. I'm finding it impossible to locate hard info about her 06 Jetta with a 2.5-5 cyl engine.
Her car has 72k on it. She drives a lot! The car has been properly serviced throughout the warrenty period and has been fine.
Recently, however, it has been throwing P0480 and P0481 codes which indicate a Cooling Fan 1 and 2 Control Circuit Malfunction. The codes clear themselves from time to time but pop up randomly, too. I've got a code reader which found them.
Nowhere I have searched has ANY info about how to address these codes. AlldataDIY does not list a 2006 model yet and there are no manuals I've found that address it, either. I suspect a bad relay or switch of some type but don't want to waste time or money trying to find them.
Both fans work fine as far as I can tell and her car does not overheat. So, can someone suggest a repair process and the appropriate part to replace? I own a Jag and have an easier time finding info. VW, for some reason, is not very forthcoming with maintenance info for this 'ol Dad just trying to help her daughter.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
