I mostly just drive it to work and back about 25-30 minutes each way, and every day when I got home from work and turned off the engine it would come on a do a regen cycle, for varying amounts of time(usually 3-5 minutes). But lately when I get home the fan acts like it wants to turn on but can't do it. It makes noise like the fan starts to spin and then shuts off, and most of the time it will do this multiple times, but I've only had the full cycle happen 1 time that I remember in maybe the last 2 weeks or so. I can even sometimes hear it doing the same thing while the car is on. Not sure if it's an issue with the fan itself or maybe a sensor or something. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

Forum Rules and Guidelines


This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

That is normal on DPF engines its doing a regen after you have you have switched off.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

If its doing a regen every day after only 25-30 minutes of driving you have bigger problems then just the fan.
