Hi all,

My 1998 1.9TDI is overheating, the radiator fans don't work. When the engine temp rises, and I turn the engine off, a whirring noise can be heard coming from somewhere, i cant quite pinpoint it. I dont think it is coming from the fans though. The fans themselves are in no way turning or drawing air. When the temp returns to normal the whirring noise stops. (When I pull the fuse in the cabin the noise also stops so its not that fuse). I've checked the two big 50 amp fuses next to the battery and they are fine. Has anyone come across this noise before? Any suggestions without taking it to a garage?

Many thanks
Ben

There is an over-run electric pump on some that carries on circulating the hot water round the radiator only when the ignition is turned off this is separate to the fans
