Thermo fan switch question
Posted 14 February 2005 - 09:03 PM
On another maybe connected not by battery gadge will read less then ten volts when i start and raise to around 12 when running, but my battery reads 12.6 with the car off and 13.3 when runing when i test with a multimeter.
Any ideas on ether of the situations would be great.

that grounds the radiator.
sounds like the dash gauge for the voltage may be
out of calibration.
Wire your multimeter to a cig lighter plug

im having similar problems, my fan wont kick on when its suppose to. but someone ran a hot wire from the battery to the fan and run it off a toggle switch. i cant figure out why my fan wont kick on. Now, i have two therm switch's on my radiator only one is hooked up though. kinda weird. im just goin to install a toggle switch into the dash. i rather control my fan anyway. its the unplugged wires up by the relay center that's bugging me??

you can make a toggle to act as the ground for hte thermoswitch. You woud run it in parallel, and manually override it to come on when you want, but you can never leave it off becausse the thermoswitch (should) make the fan come on anyway.

now when tracing i should only have to trace from the fan to the thermo switch, corect?
not that complicated, its all within the 2-3 foot stretch?
