Each month the Autodata team answers a common technical question and provides a printable document with technical diagrams to download and keep, exclusively for IGA members.

Q. We are experiencing a problem on a 2012 Skoda Citigo where the engine coolant blower motor runs continuously after switching the ignition off. We have carried out some basic wiring checks but we haven’t found the cause of the fault. Have any other Citigo owners reported this fault?

A. The fault you describe affects all Citigo models and is due to a defective engine coolant blower motor control module. Fit a new engine coolant blower motor control module (Fig.1).

To complete this repair the engine control module (ECM) will require reprogramming with upgraded software from the manufacturer.
