jocus 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.

theindustrialist 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.

hugging corners
Fan...blown relay...sensor...overheating

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
