Hey guys, I don't know if my fan is having problems in our 2010 Touareg TDI but when you guys turn on the car in the morning or after it has been sitting for a few hours...does the main radiator fan start spinning?

My 04 Jetta TDI rad fan won't come on until a certain engine temperature but I've bee told that on the touaregs it should be alwasy on.

Can anybody check for me sometime in the morning?

Thank you Zagg...I've read the threads about the fan staying on after engine is off...I completely understand why it does that.

I am just wondering, with the engine cold in the morning...would the fan turn on. Even after driving for a bit, if it's not at the operating temps the fan in my opinion should no go on.

Fan should`nt come on when cold I know it sounds weird but ive heard it can be a sign of battery about to die may need to test battery but also could be faulty temp sensor

For me, having a fan running right off the start seems wrong. From what I understand about engines(gas/diesel), they are more fuel efficient when they are at operating temperatures.

With that said, I cannot see why Volkswagen Engineers would want the diesel engine to be cooled when it is already cold...making it not as efficient as it should be.

I think you guys are reading my thread wrong since I probably wasn't clear enough. My rad fan doesn't come on....well when I fired up the touareg about 2 weeks back in the shop, it reached the middle idle temp and they weren't on. I just figured something was wrong but when I think about it, they should be that way.

I am glad this feedback from you guys assured me nothing is wrong with the rad fan :)
