In the event of fault

In the event of a radiator fan relay fault, the radiator fans themselves do not work. The relay is not commanded by the ecu.

Fault codes generated and possible correlated faults fault codes generated by the engine control unit and displayed by the dds (fan relay diagnosis):


Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to vdc = with dashboard on, using a voltmeter, a voltage is measured between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to ground = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, continuity is detected between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - open circuit = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, no continuity is detected between the two ends of the wire tested.

The dashboard service display shows the error "fan relay" and the eobd warning light activates.

Possible correlated faults: coolant reaches boiling point but radiator fans not working. Check:

The radiator fan relay may be actuated from the dds to check radiator fan function.

The fans are normally activated at 103 and switched off at 101C.

If none of the aforementioned tests identify the problem and the radiator fan relay is in proper working order, replace the engine control unit.

Component replacement methods

No special measures are necessary in order to replace the radiator fan relay.
