I just installed my intercooler setup and now noticed that my radiator fan is not working. I checked the fan connection, I get 12v to the plug and it is connected properly to the fan assembly. Anyone had this issue after installing their intercooler?
Don't drive the car until you get it fixed. The temp gauge isn't going to start rising until it has reached a very high heat to begin with. If it hits red, you're probably going to damage something very expensive.I took the car for a short drive, long enough for it to completely warm up. With the Ac on at lights the temperature of the air and the coolant temperature both rise. almost into the red before i shut it down. The fan wasn't on after i shut it down like it normally would, all that leads me to believe its not running at any point. I have removed the fan, is there a way to cycle power to the fan for testing? there were no loose connections when I removed it.
I tracked down some more info and diagrams for you. Check the fuse diagram against the R manual. This is for a s60 T5, but may vary slightly for the R... but I don't think so.I have removed the fan, is there a way to cycle power to the fan for testing? there were no loose connections when I removed it.
I did the same with my FMIC, wrapping all relevant points with half a roll of electrical tape. 3 months later, all good.Just an update. Replaced the fan motor and all is good. I put an extra silicone tube around the section that could contact the starter and wrapped the other hose with electrical tape, so it should prevent any future issues.
