found it now, was only the drivers side but seems like the wire has corroded at some point and some animal has gaffer taped a bit of wire between to get some extra length! :?

nevermind doesn't look like much rain today so i'm gunna have a go at sorting it out proper :)

I know the feeling, it was only yesterday i had a good go over my radiator fan wiring, used proper car wiring and crimps to remove all previous 'twist and tape' bodge jobs.

There are some animals out there!!!  Twist wires together and call that a job well done!!!  Not even insulated, wrong rated wire for the job and not even bothering with relays to switch high currents ie fan witches.
