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.

Where is the heater fan relay for a 993 Mercedes Benz 300 e and how do you fix it?

The blower motor control unit is located on the back of the blower motor. 1. Check fuse. 2. Turn on heat and check for voltage at blower motor. Found voltage replace blower. 3. Check for supply power from the fuse on the red wire going to the blower control unit. 4. Check for a good ground on the black wire on the control unit. 5. Check for control power on the yellow wire from the climate control unit. When you select a fan speed (or the unit selects a speed in auto mode) a voltage that ranges from .4 - 9 volts is sent down the yellow wire to the blower motor control unit. 6. If all these checks are good than change the blower motor control unit. Hope this helps.
