Mk3 rad fan running randomly

Post by Lukehr » Mon May 03, 2021 3:32 pm

Hi all, after some advice if possible. The fans on my radiator occasionally randomly cut in regardless of engine temperature and sometimes over-run when the ignition is off. It's quite an intermittent problem and there doesn't seem to be any pattern to it, sometimes it won't happen for a few weeks. I'm guessing it could be faulty temperature sensors? Has anyone else experienced this and got it sorted?
