Fan...blown relay...sensor...overheating
2 Attachment(s)
the car was overheating for some time. today i have decided to pull thermostat out and have discovered this. relay has burned connectors. should i shortcut it to have fans running full power, or is it not recommended?.. what are the next steps. I am working on the car this moment at job parking lot, in order to make back home. I have also discovered that upon turning ac on not always fans kick in high speed...(i think low is working). i was considering radiator temp fan on/off sensor, but looking at this discovery that might not be an issue. please advice. thank you BArtos

I'm experiencing similar troubles. My low speed resistor doesn't look nearly as bad as yours though...

Here's the part #s for the resistor & plug. Hope it helps.

guys guys guys. thats a 40 dollar part. just go to ford and replace it. its called the fan assembly resistor pack. its a common trouble part that only lasts a few years.
i didnt need a pig tail. but mine went out after i turned my f0f0 into an amphibious assault vehicle. i still need to replace my horn though

Just took a drive up to northern wi from chicago with a lot of traffic jammed.. I had the same issue about four years ago, and I'm pretty sure it was the thermostat that went bad, not ever turning the fans on. Driving;fine.. idling;hot, stop-and-go with mostly stop;extra hot. Gotta get in there and investigate.
