I have a 2 liter 1996 jetta, the electronic control unit for the radiator cooling fan located on the left side shock tower under the coolant reservoir is bellowing smoke. It has two fuse ports and a fusible link, I replaced the fuses to the correct ones and it continued to smoke, the new fuses are not blown, im not sure if the unit just has moisture in it, or the unit its self is bad. Anyone with information on this it would be greatly appreciated.

If the smoke smells electrical. Replace it.

Actually, replace it no matter if it is just water / moisture being evaporated. Shouldn't be smoking period.

Coolant can drip onto / into it from the reservoir, when the reservoir leaks / vents, which will affect the control unit.
