RE: [DML] Cooling Fans Not Turning On



In fact, the car need not be running, the key need only be in the run
position as I recall. - makes it much easier to hear the fans come on
too...

Hi Glen,

To test the fans, simply unplug the wires from the otterstat and touch
them together while the car is running. The usual safety rules apply!! 

If they do not come on, check the circuit breaker things in the fuse
compartment. They are side by side, one for each fan, and are white,
IIRC. If they are blown, the fans may be dying.

Normally my fans come on right around 210 F. I'm sure both were 
working until very recently. Sitting in traffic the other day, I 
noticed they didn't switch on. My temp needle isn't going over the 
220 mark, but I'm not sure I trust the reading. I've tried replacing 
the otterstat and also upgraded to PJ Grady's "little grey box" fan 
relay fix. I let my car idle for about 20 mins after this, temp 
needle went to 220 but still no fans. Is there a way to jump the fans 
or some test I can do to determine if they're working?

Thanks,
Glenn
