About 2008 Volkswagen passat

Asked by Jul 16, 2017 at 05:05 PM about the 2008 Volkswagen Passat Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2008 Volkswagen passat and something keeps
draining my battery. I took it to the shop and they told me it
was the starter, but that wasnt the problen because i still
have the same issue, and the fan stays on after i shut the
car off for at least 10 sec. So i was wondering would that
have anything to do with my battery being drained

Possibly the fan is the issue. But a decent shop would be able to find the reason of your battery drain. It's called a parasite draw. Can you try another?

I took to the shop and they said it was the starter. But i dont believe it was the starter. ..but when i leave the air condition off, the fan dont act like its working extra hard. I think its the fan thats draining the better, but i didnt the fan could do that
