I have a 1996 Jetta. If you have the older body style then it is directly beneath the round coolant expansion tank, attached to the strut tower. It is a black rectangular box with fuses under a clear plastic cover. You'll need to unscrew the coolant expansion tank to get at the fan control module. It is susceptible to being doused with coolant which might cause the fan control module to short.

If you mean the radiator fan make sure the airconditioning is off. If the fan keeps running it could be a bad fanswitch (located on radiator tank. Or a failed control relay (if fitted) If still no luck check for a failed AC fan control relay.
