I dont know if I am being pedantic.

But, I have noticed that for the past week my fan hasn't come on and yesterday did about 30miles in sports, but still no fan.

The temperature needle is bang on in the middle.

Is there anyway I cant test the fans are working without vcds.

Thanks in advance guys.

When you switch the air con on they should fire up to test they work
In normal condition if your car is spot on 90oc it won't come on till bout 100

Just be aware that the coolant temperature gauge is "corrected" to display 90 over the realtime temperature range 75 to 105. It's more of an indicator rather than giving the realtime coolant temperature.

As said by Andy, the radiator fans operate continuously on low speed if the air con is enabled andvthe ambient temp is above 5 degrees. Once the coolant temperature reaches around 105 degrees the radiator fans will operate on high speed to enhance cooling.

You can use the secret menu on the climate control to find out what the actual car temp is not relying on the temp gauge which is a guide at best.
