  7. 2004 A/C Condenser to Radiator space (should it be sealed?)

    Problems & Issues
    The A/C was repaired a couple years ago. Not sure what was done as Father-in-law didn't keep receipts. I know it was about $1,000 when he did it. Since he gave it to my son we now get to work and diagnose any issues. Sunday 90+ degrees the A/C stopped blowing cold when sitting at idle (waiting...

  17. Radiator fan not engaging

    Problems & Issues
    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...
