I have a short somewhere and cooling fan is not running automatically. It would be nice to be able to fix this problem but I know it is not going to be. We took the car to a dealer and they would not do the work.


As an alternate solution, I would like to install as manual switch to have the fan going. At least this way, car can live couple more years until my son finishes school.


I've tested the fan. Although the fan is rusty, it is still functioning. I have made direct connection to the battery terminal directly and it was turning.


Couple of issues in question as I am not a master mechanic are:

- The best way to make connection? Perhaps from fuse box?

- Is there a fuse needs to be installed? If so, where?

- How do you pull the line into the interior to install a manual switch?


I know it is very crude way of getting the work done but either that or putting the car to sleep.


Any help would be appreciated.
