engine cooling fan motor relay + el question
« on: 23:05, Fri 04 November 2011 »
where can i find the engine cooling fan motor relay?

another question: i don't have electric windows but in the centre console there are plastic trims/caps in stead of buttons. however there are wires underneath these plastic caps. is the car pre-wired ? :)

thanks!  :)

Not sure if all the relays under the bonnet are the same but when i got stuck i swapped the one for the horn to get the fan going in traffic.

I'm sure there not anything special, a half decent motor spares shop should have something suitable.

Very informative Ash, but I think he meant where on the car is the relay!

Ah! I miss-read it, i thought he said where can i find a relay.

It's under the bonnet. In the same area as the radiator fan switch, i might be dangling down the front of the alternator somewhere.

I'm sure if you follow the wiring from the radiator fan switch it should lead you straight to it.

Most cars tend to come pre wired as manufacturers find it cheaper to just use one loom than make different ones. If your looking to put electric windows in I have the switches and a pair of motors in the shed that I am going to sell.
