Do your radiator fans come on with A/C? V6 GTV
Gents (as Gals if applicable),
I purchased a 1998 GTV V6 about a month ago and so far so good but....
Yesterday when driving around town in 42 degree (C) weather, the air conditioner went hot and the engine temperature started to rise above 90. I babied it home (no air cond, constant 60 km/h in 4th) but the temp hovered around 110C
When I got home, I noticed that I couldn't hear any thermo fans. I found that two relays had stopped working (1st and 2nd fan speeds). I almost couldn't believe it... I tested each of them twice thinking i'd made a mistake. I suspect that one of them failed some time ago and I never detected it.
Anyway.... I replaced the relays and now I have both high and low fan speeds but.... when I turn on the air conditioner, the compressor cuts in but the fans won't start unless the engine gets to 90 degree mark.
I believe that the fans should come on as soon as the air cond is on regarless of if the engine is cold or hot.
Can anyone else confirm if their fans come on with the air con even when the engine is cold?
