Lightbulb Re: Cool???

Do you have a chip set to turn the fan on at a lower than stock temperature?

Are all of your fan relays working? Does it only come on "high", or low at first?

Thumbs down Re: Cool???

No. The fan is turning on when the stock chip is telling it to turn on at a higher temp than 160. Just like it is supposed to.

If you want to have it run strong, get a chip. Not the OEM 25 year old chip.

Might be a good place to wire a 'force fan on' relay and switch to insure the car runs cooler.
