Btw when i hit the defroster for the rear, i hear a click clik sound coming from the driver side fuse box? What does that means
WARNING: Do NOT run your A/C for any significant duration until you get your radiator fan trouble fixed. A few seconds to see if rad fans will run is OK. but that's it. Running A/C without forced fan cooling of the condensor assembly will cause head pressure to build way above normal which can lead to A/C compressor failure. This will, in turn, throw compressor guts (debris) throughout your A/C system. This is referred to as black death and it's a very expensive lesson to learn. This is how a $200 dealer repair of your cooling fan assembly can turn into a $1800 A/C total overhaul job. The other thing that may happen with continued use can be a blow head gasket and possibly a warped head and that may cost you $600 to $1200. You might want to take the car to a dealer to get the cooling system repaired before collateral damage causes this job costs you 10x.
