The radiator fan with the electric drive

In Audi A4 the fan with the electric drive is put only in the presence of the strengthened cooling (an automatic transmission, the towing device in a factory complete set, climatic installation), it joins only in case of need.

Therefore the temperature and dependent switch is built in a radiator. If he "feels" that the cooling liquid proceeding by it after passing of a radiator still too hot, turns on the fan by means of the relay in a nest 2 in "a vosmishtyrkovy support of the relay". It also switches off the fan electric drive when temperature below in a radiator falls up to the certain size.

The two-level fan of a radiator with the electric drive

In some Audi A4 versions there is a two-level fan of a radiator with the electric drive which thanks to existence of two steps of inclusion can react to temperature increase of cooling liquid more individually. It is possible thanks to a two-level thermoswitch which includes the second way of current to the fan via other relay in a nest 3 in "a vosmishtyrkovy support of the relay" and additional resistance.

Temperatures of switching of a thermoswitch of a radiator

Fan model
Inclusion temperature
Switching off temperature
The one-stage
92–97 °C
About 84 °C
The two-level
  • 1st step
92–97 °C
84 °C
  • 2nd step
99–105 °C
91 °C

 Council: Because of electric connection via the plug 30 the fan can suddenly turn on even at the idle engine. Be careful when carrying out to work in a motive compartment!


The thermoswitch (shooter) of the fan of a radiator with the electric drive in cars with the strengthened cooling is screwed below at the left on a radiator.
