It could be a faulty coolant temperature sensor?

There is a good explanation of the VR6 cooling system on the Corrado Forum ( http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?38925-The-definitive-VR6-cooling-guide ) well worth a read to get an understanding of how it operates.


There is a sensor on the thermostat housing driving the temperature gauge in the dash.

The other sensors on the thermostat housing, along with the sensor on the radiator inform the Fan Controller to operate the multi stage cooling fans.


You can do some tests on the sensors, as documented on the Bentley Publishers article on Gauge and Instrument Testing ( http://www.bentleypublishers.com/tech/vw/bentley.vw1301.testing.htm  )


Understand the problem before shelling out your hard earned dosh!
