    The radiator fan is not turning on. It engages when the A/C is turned on, or even when I jumpered the leads to the radiator fan switch. Because of that, I assumed it was the fan switch, and replaced it. No dice. I'm baffled. Note: There are two fans, approximately equal, mounted to the...

    2007 CRV 2WD LX First thing I did was hook my manifold gauges up and there is 150 PSI on both sides so it's not a low gas situation.
