08 Redline Radiator Fan trouble shooting
As I have dug through the forums here and around the web, I am posting this and hoping I haven't missed a previous resolution to this problem. I have owned an '08 Redline for about 3 years now. Since the day I bought it, the radiator fan has never worked. As you can guess, this makes for some nerve racking drives in rush hour traffic. When the car is in motion (anything above 30mph), my coolant temps range from 194-199. Whenever I stop/slowly move for any extended amount of time, my coolant temps rise steadily and when not kept in check, will eventually trigger the overheat light and chime. I might also mention that my air conditioning does not work unless the car is moving (wind turning the radiator blades.) If the A/C is left on for a few minutes at idle, fog will eventually come out of the vents. I have had the fan tested by direct connecting to the battery and it is functional. From what I can gather from my extensive searching, this issue is caused by a faulty "Fan Control Module." Though I have searched, I have not been able to find any reference to the part or its part number on the web. Has anyone had the same issue or can you provide me with the part number for the "fan control module?" Can the module only be replaced by purchasing the entire shroud assembly?
