ECU fan relay location?

IDK but this problem REALLY pisses me off especially when I am in traffic, or when I get out for a moment and hear those fans running for no reason.
I am wondering if it is something turbo specific to allow the turbo to cool or something, I know there is definitely a huge amount of heat under the engine bay.
Also keep in mind I did replace my ECU temp sensor. Once with a non oem, then one from my 93 legacy which was replaced a few months back which was OEM. All the same symptoms!

I found a thread actually where a guy had similar issues and it turned out to be a defective OEM thermostat. I hope mine fixes itself I don't feel like draining the coolant for the 4th time. Hopefully it won't hurt anything anyway. As long as it is not overheating right?

Is yours an auto?
Have you looked into that?
It could be that the transmission temperature sensor is defective.

I have been having trouble with my 92 legacy starting when cold. I noticed the fans start as soon as I turn on the ignition. I looked in the fuse, relay box under the hood, driver's side and found a fuse for sub fan that turned off one. Then I tried what looks like a jumper wire, I think it is a fusible link, anyway when I unplugged it both fans quit. Hope that helps. Now, can anyone trell me how to post a question? I'm new to this. My Subaru starts great if I plug in the block heater, if not it acts like it needs choked. It fires intermmitantly and after cranking will finally start running on its own roughly and soon runs normally. Any ideas?
Up at the top of the list of threads there is a "New Thread" button.

Unless that is how it tells the fans to run and it inputs the tranny and engine temp together?!
If it matters tranny is slipping noticeably in some gears on and off, no awd, and winning. Tranny will be changed ASAP though.
