Re: [DML] Re: interior fans (not radiator fans) intermittent operation



Toby,

This happens at speed 2 as well. (I don't use speed 1.) I don't know how 
to test a relay, but since they are massively expensive from the vendors 
  individually and I don't want to buy a kit, I think I will investigate 
the circuit breaker option first.

I have tried looking in the workshop manual for the location of the 
circuit breakers. Where are they, exactly? If they're in the relay 
compartment, they're not illustrated on the appropriate pages. (M:07:xx)

Thanks for your help!
