[DML] Re: Cooling Fans Not Turning On



Glenn,
     Is there any clicking coming from your relay compartment?  When I
first brought my car out here to Arizona, the ambient cabin heat was
causing the blade connection on the fan circuit breaker to become
loose, arc, and just not allow the fans to always come on or stay on.
 I could hear the circuit breaker clicking/tripping.  It was easily
remedied by snipping off the blade connector, crimping on an eye-type
connector, and attaching it to the circuit breaker screw with the nut
on it.  That solved all of my cooling fan issues.  Might be something
for you to check out and it is a really cost effective solution to
intermittent cooling fan operation.  Just to note, I had FanZilla
already installed when this occurred.  It was all a result of a fauly
connector at the fan circuit breaker and high ambient cabin
temperatures.  I guess 117 degree days will do that.... :)

Good luck!
