A Volkswagen Jetta radiator fan is controlled by a fan relay. If the relay malfunctions the fan could either stay on or not work at all. An engine diagnostic would be recommended.

Any ideas with 1995 jetta diesel radiator cooling fan which runs all of the time even with sensors at rad and at engine block disconnected?

Volkswagen has a hardwired cooling system in a good number of their models, the cooling fan will run several minutes after driving. Especially if the engine is overheated, you can expect the fan to resume after it has initially shut off... So make sure to disconnect the battery before any repairs following running the engine.
