PLEASE HELP/ EA81 Thermoswitch /Electric Fan wont come on/ Please Electric Gods Help
Posted 19 July 2004 - 06:54 PM
My Electric Fan Will Not Turn On... I did the testing that our Holy Bible " HTKYSA" Book says... When I disconnected the the wire from the Thermoswitch the Fan turned on without being grounded. Both Fans come on when the Air Cond. is turned on....
Does anybody have any other suggestions of where else I can check the wiring... I can only assume that the wire is grounding out somewhere else.. The wire goes into a mess of other wires in a plastic tube.
It seems the thermoswitch was replaced once before because the wire was spliced right before it was connected to the thermoswitch. Thanks All... Joe

I also removed the wire that attaches to the thermoswitch and sanded the connection right on the thermoswitch... Still no luck,,
As I said grounding the thermoswitch wire to the frame does not turn the fan on because when I simply removed the wire from the thermoswitch the fan came on immediately. So Im assuming that the wire leading to the thermoswitch must be grounding itself somewhere before it even gets to the thermoswitch.
I was hoping that someone else had this problem and found a simple solution instead of me trying to trace the wiring in the harness... Im not to good at that stuff...
Thanks for your replys.. every bit helps...

do you want it back to stock wiring?
easiest way to sort out the fan wiring will be to remove the battery so you have access to the wires/loom and start sorting them out... if you want to get back to stock. somebody couldlet you know whatwires are for the stock connetor and thermoswich... if nobody does by the time I get back to IA, then I can get some pics from my 86. should be the same....

Now, just so I'm clear...if you disconnect the wire from the thermoswitch, do BOTH fans come on or just the one?
