    Default Someone confirm fan operation - please !

    Should the radiator fan cut in when you press the air con button irregardless of engine temperature ?

    Air con blows cold, fan cuts in OK on engine temperature rise, but seems temperamental or not to work at all on the air con activation.

    car nice and cold when moving - and a through flow or air over the condensor, but not when stationary.....

    Fan control unit ?

    Don't worry

    Sorted.

    It was the fan control unit. I had a spare, slaved it in, and sure enough the fan kicked in at cold with air con on

    Where's the fan control unit? I've noticed on mine that sometimes you can hear the fan stopping when you turn the engine off and other times you can't.
