WHY DON'T YOU JUST FIX THE PROBLEM AT HAND

JUST GUESSING

SOMETHING DISCONNECTED

A FUSE

MAYBE A BAD COOLING FAN RELAY

BAD COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR

WHEN YOU START RIGGING (AND SORTA LOST AT DOING IT) YOU MIGHT FRY SOMETHING/ HAVE EYESORE CRAP DANGLING HITHER AND YON/ GETS COMPLICATED IN MAKING IT SHUT OFF WHEN YOU KILL THE CAR OR EVEN BETTER, REMEMBERING TO TURN 'EM OFF/ AND BEST-US OF ALL, SETTING YOUR RIG ON FIRE

WHATCHA THINK?

So how do I know what's what? Money is tight right now so how where are these things located on the car and how can I check them?

ALL RIGHTY THEN

IF I'M GONNA TRY TO HELP YOU

SO LIKE I NEED THE INFO YOU DID NOT PROVIDE

NEED

EX/ DX/ LX/ WHATEVER KINDA "X" YOU HAVE!

COUPE OR SEDAN?

ENGINE SIZE?

AUTO OR MANUAL TRANNY?

WITHOUT THIS INFO, I CANNOT LOOK UP SPECIFICS ABOUT YOUR RIG.

ARE YOU SOMEWHAT "AUTOMOTIVE"/ DO YOU HAVE BASIC, AUTOMOTIVE ORIENTED TOOLS? WHAT ABOUT A CHEAP VOLTMETER?

OK so I unplugged the fan on the drivers side and left the one on the passengers side plugged and the fans came on. Is it OK to drive the car that way.

Since you said go for it I'm assuming it's fine and the car isn't going to explode on me right!

IF BOTH FANS ARE RUNNING, AND CONTINUE TO

THEN YOU CAN RULE OUT "THEM" BEING THE CAUSE OF ANY OVERHEATING

OTHER STUFF CAN CAUSE OVERHEATING TOO, SO LET'S ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON THE GAUGES (AS YOU OUGHTTA DO ANYWAY!)

IF THINGS AIN'T WORKING OUT, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY TO LOCATE AND REPAIR THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM, INSTEAD OF "GETTING BY"
