Default Thank you ajn007

I was able to follow the instructions from ajn007 above. The photo was a huge help. 460 relay fixed the issue.
Thank you ajn007 for your terrific post.

  3. - Disconnected the battery - Straight 12v to blower motor - result : motor working
  4. - Left the blower motor disconected , reconnected the battery , run VCDS again , i got a different code , i can not recall exactly what was that , but something like : 01273 - Fresh Air Blower (V2) Failure
  5. - Then i cleared the codes with VCDS
  6. - Disconnected and reconnected the battery
  7. - Reconnected the blower power wires
  8. - Started the engine , and turned on my CLIMATRONIC , blower started blowing air!!!
  9. - Run VCDS again , no more Fault Codes
Also... there is a few relay is in our TDI They are located below the instrument cluster on the driver side ,above the on board power supply control module... and there is a relay carrier of on board power supply control module , on the left under the instrument cluster !

Ol'Rattler ! Thank You for the information ...
Symptom - No Fan on any setting, but very faint noise from behind the control switch.
After reading XXCSU's post - I started at the Motor Resistor Thermal Fuse. Just pop it out and measure resistance of the fuse (should be zero for a good fuse).
Next, pulled the electrical connector from the motor and found 12vdc while rotating the fan switch. Make sure ignition is on. (tip: power outlets are handy for a reliable ground).
Pulled the fan/motor, found the fan spins, but slow. Connected fan to a 12vdc supply ( battery charger), and it spun. Hmmmm. now everything 'works'.
squirt a little bit of silicone spray onto the motor shaft on the fan end.
Plugged it back in and tested before wrestling the fan back into place.
30 minute job and no replacement parts.
(In a couple months, I'll be TDI-free when VW buys it back)

I was really optimistic after finding your post. My daughter has the exact same symptoms you described, so I went ahead and order the part on ebay. They sent me the wrong part. The part they sent is relay 449. It's the exact same part number without the "A" at the end. Since we had it apart I decided to swap relay "B1" and "B9" as you suggested, and still no fan blower. I then checked the fuses and found something strange. First of all her owner manual that came with the car put the Fan fuse as a 40 amp fuse in location 22. Slot 23 is vacant and slot 24 is the 15 amp cigarette lighter. The car is from Canada and we have ran into other strange difference is the past.
The other stange thing is that the top of both of the fuses mentioned only have 3.5 volts on the top of the fuse. The other fuses in the box have 12 volts. I made a jumper to bring 12 volts to the Fan fuse and the fan turned on, but no cold air. There maybe multiple problems, who knows. Do you have any idea why the fuses in that row on the fuse block ( location 22 and 24) have 3.5 volts instead of the 12 volts? what would cause this?

Mine is a Canadian 2006 TDI with Climatic. My manual says
22 Fan (40)
23 Front Power Windows (30)
24 Cigarette Lighter (25)
If it was me, I'd replace the Fan fuse. For the voltage question: have you cleaned the grounds on your car? A weak point on 2006s. From an old post:
"The main ones
- Under the wiper arm / cover in the cowl area
- Under the air box on the left front frame rail behind the headlight
- The one next to the battery
- One more on the passenger frame rail behind the headlight

I usually wire brush clean all surfaces then spray with a liberal coating of Dexoit."

If you have climatronic, you might want to re-read post 6 in this thread about canbus and the perils of making 12v jumpers.

There is also a known problem with the fan blower resistors. See thread http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=375202 . The underlying cause is the fan motor, which blows the fuse, or the resistor. If you pull the fan motor (not hard to do, lots of good how-tos here), and clean and lube it, the problem probably won't recur (for a while) once the fuse or resistor is replaced. You could also replace the motor, but a few drops of oil and a half hour works for me. I relube the fan motor every 18 months - it's a poor design, motor before the filter, so it gets dirty. Which reminds me, I'm due to do it right about now. Off to the passenger footwell...

2006 TDI with CLIMATIC manual A/C controls
The initial problem was the A/C would only work on the highest setting (4), but soon after the A/C stopped blowing all together. After reading a few posts, I initially thought the resistor was at fault, however it has been replaced and did not resolve the issue.
I've gone through all the suggested steps above with the exception of cleaning vehicle grounds. The multimeter shows good 12v power at the blower motor harness and the blower motor actuates when connected directly to 12v power. I swapped the relays under the dash and they do not appear to be defective, as the engine starts fine.
I do not have access to a VCDS reader, any other thoughts on what may be causing this problem?

Similar situation: blower stoped working, after that it would once in a while would start. After that completely stoped. Checked the fuses, got even a new heating cooling controller per mechanic recomendatio: no change. Pulled out the blower motor, and here starts even more interesting: part #1k1820015c with L shaped 4 pins is discontinued and replaced with #1k1820015L" which has only to pin connector. What to do now?!
