    Afternoon All,

    New to the site so apologies if this has been mentioned before, couldn't find much with a search.

    I've just bought a 56 plate A3 2.0 FSI. I know it's not got the turbo but for the price it was too good to turn down. It does have a couple of faults as expected. Noticed this morning that the fan behind the radiator isn't working. The car temperature is fine when driving though. Went on a 45 minute drive yesterday and the temperature gauge was just below the middle when the car warmed up.

    Could this just be a blown fuse or something? I'm not the most technical person when it comes to cars and engines etc it has to be said.

    Thanks in advance

    Is there a couple of fuses it could be or is there just one that I need to search for? I might as well check that before trying the capacitor as I haven't a clue what that is!
