View Full Version : radiator fan wire short....

02-02-2008, 12:10 AM
So i was driving today and i smelled something funny, it smelled kind of like burning clutch but I know there was no way thatwas the problem being how the clutch is fairly new and I almost never beat on it. So i finally get to a stop with my friend and we take a look and I let the car keep running, a wire starts smoking so I turn off the car and disconnect the wire. Turn the car back on to see if it keeps running, and it does. After a little bit of idle the car gets a little hot so we look to see if the radiator fan is still on, and it is not. So now i'm stuck, good thing its cold out so I can at least drive the short distance home but, does anyone know why this happened? there is no extra stress on the fan than any other time the car has run, so does anyone know the problem? maybe I just need a new fan? I most certainly have to replace those shorted out wires :mad: so any ideas please? sorry i didnt search in advance, i'm stuck at a friends house and his internet is not very great.

maybe one time we could go there, but as for myself i'd either want an aftermarket really supre nice one after this fan, aside from that I already got one on the 91 sc at my house also, but thanks for the offer.

Take the fan out of the 91 and see if it does it with that fan
