Heater Fans Work But Not Straight Away

I own an S reg gti-6 and recently the heater fans will not turn on when the console switch is turned.

After 5-10 mins the heater comes on also the air con light is on.

Anyone any idea how to fix?

Have you tried the fan speeds individually?

On auto fan speed i've heard that if one of the resistors in the bulkhead air intake have gone it will affect the fan's operation.

Ok.

The heater fans appear to work when the water temp reaches approximately 80 degrees. Once the fans have been running, you can turn the car off switch the fans off and on and the fans still run. [The aircon light being on is unconnected]. Leave the car for some time and you need to run the car up to temp then the fans start or so it seems

I've to fix the rear demist relay! Im wondering if the rear demist and heater are connected

and

If the fans are coming on when the engine is run is there a component/relay or mechanism connected to the heater fan switch or circuit?

Problem Solved!

Checked fuse compartment under steering wheel, checked for burnt relay switches or difficult to remove relays. Tweeked a green relay and the heater started. I'm quite pleased I've found the problem, "dirty connection"...Saturday, ill clean away any oxidised materials from the relays terminals/legs with a fibreglass brush Big grin

NOTE: THIS DOES NOT MEAN THIS IS A FIX FOR ALL FAN RELATED ISSUES. WHAT THIS DOES MEAN IS THE FUSES AND RELAYS FIRST SHOULD BE CHECKEDUnsure
