I have installled a hayden-pusher orient fan on my TR6, it has stopped working. all connections are intact & fuses are OK. question is how to test both relay & tempurature sensor imbedded in radiator grill? I hate electrical problems.

Go to the fan directly first and then backtrack. (much faster to type than do)
If I may add to this thread, is there a way for the electrically ignorant
(me) to wire an electric fan so if it were to die, the spark to the motor
would also be cut?

Isn't that what a temperature gauge and a driver checking is for? Lots of things in the cooling system that can fail besides the fan and then there's oil pressure, fuel level...

My e-fan only comes on when I get in stop and go traffic for 10 minutes or more and its hot out. I also have a switch on the console to turn it on/off manually.

As the last poster said, start at the fan wiring direct and work your way back.

I sure wouldn't want to be cruising down the road when the fan failed and
killed the engine! I'd suggest you wire the fan to an idiot light (I used
the EGR light) that goes on when the fan is running. What I've found is
that as long as I'm moving at about 30 mph or more the fan never runs. The
other thing I have is a 3-way switch: auto-on, manual-on and manual-off.

Steve,
I would suggest that having the motor stop because the electric fan malfunctioned is not a good idea. Perhaps the fan can be wired to a warning light to let you know the fan is broken (as opposed to just being off since it does cycle). Regardless, I am sure you monitor the water temp gauge, so you can take whatever action you deem appropriate should you see it rise past some arbitrary "worry" point.

Bob/Steve, I am in between now with a new aluminum radiator with spall han
from art lipp, what I have now is basic hookup via thermastat in rad fins and
no manual 0n-off-on or lite switch. new set up will definitely now have these.
Thanks- Joe

Bob, thanks I saw your previous thread in archives. actually now waiting on
art lipps new combined aluminum radiator and spall fan-as you installed. new
one will now alos have the on-off-on switch and lite. will need to sort out
how to do that-we"ll talk. I am going to as others recommeded to hotwire fan
to rule in or out its function and then see about thermastat then relay. I am
hoping the fan or thermastat so platform isn't all garbage for new equipement.
fresh start though is also OK. hate electronics. need to get skill sets on a
good meter I know will help! regards, Joe
