I just had a AC prob. It stopped cooling and starts to overheat if the AC is lturned on. On popping hood, the passenger's side fan is NOT working (it used to when AC was on). I went foolishly into trying to change the fan out without checking if it actually ran (any info on how to check either with Vmeter or jumping the 12 V into the connector)? Also, I found the relay (I think) for the AC under the cruise control. Any way to check that? Assuming it is the fan, how do you get the fool thing off without taking off the radiator. I originally thought that the thermostat was sticking causing the AC to stay off. Changed thermostat, flushed and filled the radiator. I spent about 2 hours pulling stuff off trying to get the fan off and about an hour putting it all back with no success. It has now become a issue of price (sighs heavily). Any help much appreciated.

Hi 1deadelvis,

To remove the radiator fan you need to remove the fan and shroud assy by
1. Removing the upper 2 bolts.
2. Loosening lower 2 pcs bolts.
3. Disconnecting upper radiator hose.
4. Disconnecting fan wire socket.
And you can take the assy out.

To test fan motor operations, check for blown fuse. You can apply battery voltage by looping at the relay. DO NOT try to use direct battery voltage as any internal shorting of fan motor can cause injury.

To test relay, you need to apply battery voltage to coil circuit and test for contuinity at the other two terminals.
