18359 - Radiator Fan 2 (V177): Movement Restricted / Jammed
got this fault code today any ideas ??
Basically it's exactly what it says !!
18359/P1951/006481 - Ross-Tech Wiki
I had this and it turned out the water pipe as you look into the engine on the right hand side was fouling the fan .Audi had recently replaced the cam belt and left it like that ,Luckily i checked it with VAG COM and caught it before it split the water pipe .It was stopping the fan spinning because the clip holding the pipe on was not in the correct position ! .Who knows what would have happened if i had gone on a long drive ...HTH.
had this fault code again .
wonder if fans bust ?
am checking every day know ?
any way to test fan 2 ?
You can test the fan electrically using the 'output test' button on vagcom when logged in to the engine or aircon control module.
It will be the smaller of the two fans, try to spin it by hand, probably stiff due to dry bearings. You can't dismantle the
motor as it pressed together.
it spins ok wil check in vag com tomo
Logged onto 01 engine and went into output tests and there was 1 in there for fan 1 but not fan 2
