BX 14 Fan

Post by Matt H » Fri Aug 15, 2008 7:47 pm

Hi all,

The fan on my car has stopped working, and I need to know which two cables to short, and where they are, in order to test that the fan itself still works.

Any help appreciated.

Regards,
Matt

hi matt, i have a td and my fan wiring sits behind the front bumper bth your best bet is take the grill out between the headlights and follow the wiring from the fan. but i can't remember if the 14's are any different :?

can anyone clarify :) hope this helps :)

Can you see a 2 pin connector on your radiator? Probably about 1/3 of the way up. The ones I have seen have been blue, but may not always be... This is the thermal switch, so if you disconnect the wiring to this (assuming it is still connected!) and short out the 2 terminals on the wiring loom does the fan now start?
If so the thermal switch is the problem, if not then the problem lies elsewhere... Probably be worth checking the fiuse first, if you haven't already!

Thanks for that... the problem is most definately the thermal switch, so will have to order one ASAP...
