Was it the CCRM or Fan motor?

I am finally (understatement!) getting the fan problems everyone's been having--but can't remember what's causing the problem and what I should replace (CCRM, Fan, breaker, or all 3 options)?? Here are my conditions:

Startup, A/C off -- fan "runs" fine for 1 hour drive to work.
Startup, A/C on -- fan does not operate, car overheats
(then stopped for 5min cool down, fan turns
back on, drive home w/ A/C off)

Driving, A/C off after overheating and then drive until temps are normal -- fan "runs" fine.

Fan blade appears to turn fine. I do not prefer to take it in for the recall, as the last time I took my car in for work, I end up w/grinding rear end gears . And if I need to pay for it, then so be it for peace of mind and from the service dept.
thanks,
--Cliff

Hi there,
Run a self test KOEO (I'm assuming you know how to do this). The computer will turn on the low speed fan and you'll hear the relay (at the front of the car) click. Next the fuel pump will prime and then the computer will then turn on the high speed fan and you'll hear the relay click again.

If you don't hear the click from the relay its most like CCRM and if you do hear the click and the fans don't come on, its most likely the fan. When you get intermittent problems like this it usually the fan. See ya. Michael Plummer

It is the fan motor.

The CCRMs are fine.

Your connector is probably brittle. I would imagine the next time you unplug it you see dry burn and crumble.

The fan bearings are shoddy on our fans, they draw too much power and burn up the wires at the connector.

I am in process of finding an aftermarket fan to install and replace and relocate my overflow tank.

Good Luck.

This is a very good point for my connector was burnt on the neg. side and I just replaced the whole connector (got one from a junk yard and soldered into place). See ya. Michael Plummer
