Hey all, I have this issue where I think my thermos are always on (not at the capacity of the usual speed you hear when working intermittently on other cars either)

u cant hear them, but they are rotating- not due to the car being hot either as its from when you start the car.

I have always had xd,xe and EB's with clutch fans- so I'm new to electronically controlled ones! What is the best way to trouble shoot this??

Car only ever goes to nearly half heat in traffic on over 30 degree days I assume this is normal too?

well they do have a half speed set up, the relays run the fan in serious while normal temp, but then turn them on to full when either hot or the A/C is on max.

Are they on even with just igntion on?



Too many cars atm
