Hi I'm from Northern Alberta Canada. I was driving my ion 2 on a very snowy day and ended up with so much snow in the engine compartment, that the cooling fan behind the Rad became packed with snow. I did get the car in a heated garage to thaw the snow, but now the car overheats if left idling to long. I checked the fuses and, replaced #45 under the the hood, also tried switching the #30 cooling fan relay, still not working. I tied pulling the relay and using a jumper wire in its place, this gets the fan turning. What is the cause for this? Is there a second fuse for the cooling fan? How does one locate/test the coolant tempature sensor? Any other suggestions on what can cause no power to the fan?
