Re: [DML] Fan Fail melting


Apparently you forgot, but just over 2 years ago I installed one of your 
units and due to a wiring fault it melted, filled the car with smoke, 
and destroyed the group loop wire for all of the relays in my relay 
compartment.  We had quite a long phone conversation about it.  As you 
can imagine, it was aggravating, but you did send me a new wire and a 
new unit and it has been performing fine to this day.  For a little 
while I hosted some pictures of the damage on my little site, but I 
opted to remove them as I later thought it unfairly represented your 
product.  At least I hope it did.  You've helped me out on numerous 
occasions with my car and have always supplied good advice when I've 
needed it, so I didn't want something like this to tarnish our 
relationship.  Just a note to everyone else, as far as I know what 
happened to me was an isolated occurrence and in no way represents what 
will happen to your car if you install the Fan Fail 2x2.
