A few years ago I put a 95 2.2 into a 98 Legacy Outback and it went to a friend in Seattle.

 

I helped him this weekend try to figure out the no fans on AC and P0441.

 

I put the car in D-Check and the main fan cycled.  The sub fan did not.  We plugged the sub fan into the main fan connector to make sure the fan was good and it did cycle on and off.  I know the 4 relays in the engine fuse box control the fans and AC.  The sub fan relay main/silver contacts have no voltage at the connector.

 

I could jump the AC Relay front one and the main fan would come on.  Jumping the sub fan did not power it up.  The AC compressor does work, just no fans.  The Compressor clutch cycles on and off as it should when we have the AC on.

 

I checked the Evap connector at the rear of the car for voltage, I had 0 volts.  I'm not sure it was a good reading as the ECU provides the ground, so both leads in the connector would show 0 volts if the ground was open.  I did try pin to a bolt but I'm not positive it was a good ground.  

 

The schematic show power to the connector when the key is on and the ECU controls the ground.  They were just chilton manuals so it may be in error.  

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Any good USMB Members in the Seattle area with a shop?

 

Thanks

Larry

He could bring it down to me in Portland. I'm sure we could resolve the electrical gremlins in short order.

IIRC there's a fuse for the fans and a relay in the dash fuse panel. Might check in there.

The car Larry's talking about is my son, Eric's.  We flew to Colorado and had a wonderful two day drive back to Seattle--including being snowed-in for a night in western Wyoming! 

 

Thanks for all the input, friends.  GD--he definitely wants to get the car to your shop.  I'll PM you about scheduling and details.

 

Mahalo & Aloha,

Nick
