Re: [DML] Could the wrong battery have possibly damaged my cooling fans and horn???!!

Don't worry... the answer to your question is NO, no damage is possible to 
those parts from a new battery. What probably happened was a bad ground got 
really bad because of higher voltage or..... just coincidence. It might be 
that higher voltage caused sparking at ground connection causing carbon 
buildup to the point where it doesn't work anymore.
You will need to check and clean the ground connection at the front crumple 
tubes. It is accessible by removing the access panel in the trunk... it's on 
the driver's side bolted from the top of the frame. That should fix your 
fans as well as the horn and make the fans work better and the horn will 
probably become louder :)
Easy fix! Good luck

Hi, I replaced all my cooling system hoses.  One of the cells of  my old 
battery was dry and dead so I replaced it with a Sears Die Hard  795 CCA.  I 
got the car started and began purging air out of the  cooling system.  When 
the engine got a little over 200 degrees F.  the cooling fans cut on for 
about 2 seconds and then cut off  again.  I thought it was just because 
there was not enough coolant  going past the otterstat to make it keep the 
fans on.  But when I  had the air purged out of the system the fans still 
won't come  on.  I checked the fan wiring from the fan fail mod. and none of 
my fuses are blown.  Also the horn worked when the car was running  with the 
new battery because I accidently pressed it.  Now the  horn does not work 
either!!!  Is it %$$#@% possible that the new  battery has something to do 
with these two &^%&^*$@!$#  failures???!!!

  Thank you for any adivce!  This can't be, can it???
