Cooling fan sensor?
Ok, few nights ago i left the car idling whilst talking to a couple of mates, prob bout 10 mins or so, when i went to drive off steam came flowing out of the bonnet and water ****ing out the bottom, it had overheated. All is fine, no damage to the engine or the heads etc, however i have discovered my cooling fan isnt working. I assumed there was a sensor and rang around, ended up having to ring Alfa Romeo. they told me there is no sensor, the fan is directly linked to the ECU, explains my management light being on. they believe it is most likely a loose connection or a rotten cable, does this sound correct, im lloking a fix i can carry out myself here as they are charging £70 just to look at my cables and test them. My mate is a spark ,he said hell test them but wanted to try here for advice first.
Cheers for any help you can give.
