So, I had my wife and daughter drop off our 2003 CRV LX (81K) at the dealer today to address the driver's window wiring recall. Of course, they did their multi-point inspection. My wife calls to let me know the SA told her the cooling fan is inoperable - $679! This is in addition to the fuel induction service
I did a lot of research, including here, various parts outlets, You Tube, etc. and decided not to have the dealer fix it. At this point, I have no idea if they checked the fuse, relay, etc. and I have not had a chance to look at it. It looks like an aftermarket fan is about $100 and the OEM in the mid $200 range. The dealer said the book time is 2.5 hours for the repair.
This is my daughter's vehicle so I want to make sure this gets addressed before it starts getting hot down here in FL. Is there an easy way to isolate whether the fan motor is shot? If I decide to do this repair myself, how hard is it on a 2003? I don't have a manual, but I'd probably do a 3-day subscription to the online servie I found.
