Thanks for all this great info. I'm having what I think may be the onset of AC problems in my recently acquired '00 Beetle TDI. I'm not sure what to expect from it, but it seems pretty anemic until I get it up to freeway speed, and even then not all that great. From reading your papers I thought the fans might be a likely culprit.

I checked them a few minutes ago, and right away something seems weird. You state emphatically, and it seems to be confirmed by other's experience, that the low speed fans should come on any time the key is set to on, and the AC is turned on and the interior fan running. They aren't in my car. Just out of curiosity I tried starting on the engine, and low and behold then the fans then ran.

It appears that there are two distinct triggers for the fans. Would this indicate that one is not functioning as designed?
