Re: Radiator fans don't come on
I think this deserves a thread of it's own (you're more likely to get responses) ...
Well you've covered all the main bases, by unpluging the thermostat and showed that the rad fans come on means that thermostat->rad fan circuit is fine ... I presume when you unplug the thermostat the ECU goes into a panic mode and switches the high speed fan on all the time, one thing I found with my TS when the fans stopped working was that it seemed that the high speed fan would only come on if the low speed circuit was working correctly (although this wasn't thoroughly tested and other people on here disagree with this), you've shorted out the resistor so this rules this out, have you checked the condition of the low speed relay?
