[DML] Cooling Fan Fail Light & Relay Update

I'd like clarrification on the cooling fan relay update. My car doesn't 
have a square relay in the slot for the cooling fans. It has a triangle 
of wires and each wire has a 20amp fuse in it. I'm assuming this is the 

In any case I've been given two scenerios as for the reason for this 
and I'd like to narrow down the correct one...

Scenerio #1 - the cooling fan fail light was triggered by the fans 
pulling high voltage, which would happen if they did in fact fail. But 
high voltage was also pulled when they initially turned on. Drivers saw 
the light come on frequently when the fans came on and freaked out 
because they thought the fans failed.  The relay upgrade was needed to 
simply get rid of the fan fail light completely.

Scenerio #2 - the original relay would over heat and was a fire hazard. 
The relay upgrade eliminated the original relay and fire hazard, and as 
an unwanted side effect over rode the fan fail light.
