Question type: Maintenance & Repair

temp gauge does not go above half way, and fan does not come on at all, even when the
a/c is switched,  could the bypass in thermostat housing preventing the engine from
coming to temp, and thus the fan not operating, motor tested good, also, I have changed
CCRM, and ECT, still nothing,  Tell its not the ECM., and can rebuilt ECM's be trusted?

The cooling fans come on around 220 degrees, do the cooling fans run if hooked to power and ground independently? The motors may be bad. You might want to get a scan tool that can read live data that way you can see what the engine temp the ECM is reading.

as far as I know the CCRM, is the relay for the fan, the fuse looked good but will change it. The fan motor is good, works in low fan phase anyway, jumped same and it ran, is there a separate relay outside of the CCRM, where might I find it?
