Help! Motor fan ALWAYS running when car is on & when charging (2016 eGolf)

Hi everyone - I've owned my 2016 for about 2 years, and about a month ago I starting noticing that the engine fan is always running. That used to happen only when I parked the car in the sun, and then turned the car on. However, now whenever I start the car the fan is always running even when the car is good, e.g., parked in a garage.

The other problem is that the engine fan also always turns on now when I charge the car. This means that the charging is much less efficient because it has to both charge the car and run the fan.

Any ideas? It seems that a sensor somewhere is permanently triggered and not reseting? Do I need to change a fuse or some relay switch?
