Im working on rebuilding the front of a 98 beetle 2.0l. And i cannot get the fans to come on. I have had it running, temp gets hot, but still not coming on. I am looking at the relay panel above the drivers feet. Is any of the relays for anything with the coolant fan system?

The radiator fans are powered through a controller mounted beneath the battery. See this post for info:

You can test the fans by switching on the A/C. The fans should come one. Common problems are the fuse panel above the battery and lack of coolant flow from a bad pump or air pocket in the system. Hot coolant needs to flow through the radiator to turn on the thermal switch.
