AC is off, could be the trans temp sensor though, as my transmission is f**k, the whole gearbox needs replacing, but I've got another one on the bench lol.

Is it in limp home mode? If so I'll say your ecu is dead.

it very well could be in limp mode, but I'd say that's more likely due to my trans being dead, the trans in the car is DEAD at the moment lol

ECT sensor failure mode runs the fans full time. Confirm with KOEO & KOER tests.
