Fan Problems **Urgent**

Hi guys,

 

My fan doesn't seem to operate on my car. Is this the thermostat? If so where is the switch for the fan as I am goin to London tonight and don't want the car overheating. I need to get the fan to keep on for when I'm stuck in gridlock. The temp gauge is iffy to say the least so I can never tell when my car is hot.

 

Cheers,

If the stat is faulty, then it can stop the fan coming on. There is a mechanical fan switch in the top hose. You can unplug this and bridge the connector (with a thick gauge wire, insulated) to put the fan on permanently. Alternatively replace the stat if the top hose doesn't get hot.

Thats what I thought. I will have a look at bridging the connection at lunch. Is that the switch on top of the thermostat which controls the fan. Or the ECU??
