Hi,

My coolant light has now come on and says visit workship.

I have no power to the radiator fan. Does anyone know what fuse it is and where they are? anyone have any wiring diagrams?

Thanks,

Its a petrol. What is P/W/M?

Where is the SAM located in front?

I get the impression that all my problems are leading to the ECU`s!

Forgot to ask, should there be a perminant live with ignition off?

thanks,

What use would that be Malc??

Apart from making the battery flat with-in 15 mins??

Once the car is locked down, its dead!!

Under very hot conditions the fans can start after you stop, or keep running,,many have the warning sign on them. It does have to be very hot, when you stop the heat runs to the outer surfaces

Ill retest the power with the ignition on tomorrow, if there is power then the Fan is knacked as the fan controller is built in!

Fingers crossed its something simple.

Its very simple to follow, a 12 volt feed, a earth, and a digital voltage from the ecu on the P/W/M wiring!

Sounds like rocket stuff, its so simple!!

I need another trip to St Lucia !!!!
