On an EF falcon what is the usual temp that the thermos come on at? Reason i ask is that i was running full aircon today in stop start traffice in the city and the temp needle was just on the "r" of normla which seemed a bit high to me. shouldnt the thermo fans kick about that temp. Is there a way that you can test whether they are working or not?

Anywhere inside the normal is an ok temp to run. My car runs on the low side of the N and it (90% of the time) doesn't have a fan at all, but my ute runs at about the R and it has the factory twin thermos. And both have the same thermostat. :?

Start stop traffic on a 36+ degree day with the AC running I would expect the temp to rise slightly.

My XH ute has a check system. With air con on, switch fan to position 3 and the thermos come on.
