2008 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T 4 Cyl 2.00L

Preventive Maintenance

My car battery keeps dying.

Not only that, The fans that are located behind the grill of the car are also turning on by themselves without the car even being on. Which may contribute to the draining of the battery. Please help?

The fans should only stay on for a bit if need be to cool the motor after it's been running . There is a relay that controls this and it sounds like it's going bad . Take your car to a local parts store (auto zone , napa ) and they can first check your charging system to make sure it's ok . They do it ffor free . They can also show you where the relay is and get you one . My Jeep did that and would kill the battery in no time . Relay was hard to get to . under battery box behind the bumper .
