1 Answer


Is the elect fan coming on? Either fan is bad or the relay is bad. The relay is in a bad spot under rt. headlamp. You can remove head lamp and cut a hole in the black plastic at the low spot (kind of a dip) Once you have made the hole, Look down in and you will see it. Has 2 screws holding it. But before you condemn relay, Ck to see if you have power and ground going to fan. The connector is on pass side of cooling fan shroud.
