    Default Bit of a stupid question how do you bridge things :(

    Hello, how do you bridge a radiator fan never done it before, so I take it I get a piece of wire, does it matter what wire it is? And then I in plug the fan connector and put the wire on one of the pins does it matter which one? And connect the other side up to the positive side of the battery ?

    Just need to see if its working so I can eliminate it as not working currently

    Eml on and car gets very hot and doesn't cut in and my fuse popped, the fan doesn't feel right when I spin in moves freely but feels kinda stif to me :s going to check all the wires and the relay tomorrow and bridge the fan to check it actually works and hopefully figure out what's wrong as I need the car on the road

    could it just be the relay ?

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Disconnect fan and run your own good power and ground (fused wire for safety) to ensure it runs correctly.

    You then need to search for the short. This is the hardest type of electrical fault to find.

    But a lot can be found by basic hand and eye checks of the loom and connectors.
