Default 2000 Passat battery draining

My 2000 VW Passat 1.8L 4 cyl. Turbo has been having a recurring problem in which the battery dies due to a fan under the passenger side head light running at all times. It is not an engine cooling fan. There appears to be a hose that runs from the fan towards the turbo charger, but without removing the engine shield i can't be sure. This fan runs as soon as I hook up batteries for a jump start, without the key even being in the ignition. Any suggestions?

My car started to do this very thing last night and I was wondering if you ever got your issue resolved how you did how much it cost. Basically anything you could share would be helpful.

Same car, same issue. I just disconnected the power cable to the fan and have been driving on it since. The car has less get-up, but it's getting me where I'm going. I've read that it might be a stuck relay that needs a good whack with a mallet, but I haven't located the relay yet. If anyone has more info on this, please post. I'm going to keep looking.
