I have a 2000 A4 B5 Avant and I have never heard the electric radiator cooling fan cut in. On a hot day in traffic, the oil temp will climb to 105degrees and yet the fan does not cut in. Is this a problem and is there any way of testing the fan and the temperature it cuts in at?
Many thanks for any advice.

Ok it was just a thought as the cooling fan I believe is on the same circuit as the air-con fan.
Test the fan at the rad switch.
