<!--QuoteBegin-Bear@Apr 2 2005, 10:50 AM The Aux fan has two modes.
1. Always on with AC selected.
2. Turns on based on the temperature switch (values/) that screws into side of radiator. Some have two temperature settings (highand low) and others one.
with the a/c off it will come on at a pre-determined temp.
Check the fuse (number 25 I think) in the forward fuse box. Mine went recently. It uses a 30A fuse. If the fuse is OK then check the Aux Fuse Box (I think it is called). It is infront of the left strut. It contains the high speed and normal speed relays.
