Bad Idea. This is not likely to help anything. If it only overheats while parked then you may have a cooling fan issue. If it is a BHG, a DC10 jet engine blowing on it won't cool it down.
I did it to mine and it brings too many problems, the fan gets damage right now i have dem direct and the fan is damage now i ned to buy a new fan... It seems i have an electrical problem bcuz my fans wont go on eitherphate said:Hi,
i have a 92 Legend LS 4-door and i wanted to know if anyone has tried this or not. I wanted to wire the cooling fan and condenser fan to stay on whenever the engine in on or the key is in the on position. I don't know if that will drain the battery or if there are any issues with doing that. My car overheats like crazy and unfortunately i do not have the money to buy a new one or fix this one so i'm looking for a quick temporary fix.
Also, if it's ok to do it, how would i got about bypassing the temperature trigger switch at the bottom of the radiator and doing the wiring for it? Thanks!
How do u test the sensor? and where is the realys that might b damage?Merlin the Wrench said:I believe that the sensor which controls the fans are at the bottom of the radiator. The fans aren't concerned with engine coolant temp, that is the thermostat's job. The fans' job is to disipate heat from the radiator when there is no air moving across it. One fan is controlled by the A/C system and comes on when the A/C is on. The power to the fans comes through relays. It is a fairly simple system to understand, troubleshoot and repair. But to do so one needs an understanding of wiring schematics as well as being able to use a simple VOM (voltage-ohm -meter). The first test is to check the sensor on the bottom of the radiator to see if it is working (closing) when hot. This whole thread reminds me of a recently towed ford bronco that broke down on the corner. About 2 days after sitting the owner and a friend asked me for a drill, they wanted to drill out the exhaust pipe because someone told them maybe the cat was backed up. Before letting them do that I walked over and took a quick look. There were wires everywhere that they had been using to turn things on and off. The ignition was bad as there was no spark. Next the guy is changing the coil because someone told him it is the coil. By now the coil pack in the dist is fried because I can see melted plastic all over that area. Two weeks later someone pops all four tires and the truck goes to car heaven as scrap. The moral is, those who cannot afford to maintain a Legend should not buy one.
U get a chance post the wiring diagrams it will b of alot of helpMerlin the Wrench said:sensor that turns on radiator cooling fans are (1) A/C turns one on (2) at bottom of radiator on passenger side if I remember correctly. No air pockets at bottom of radiator unless completely empty. There can be certain cold weather conditions when the radiator releases enough heat without the air flow that the fans never come on. I just can't remember whether the sensor is normally open or normally closed. I think that it is normally open but my wiring diagrams are at home.
