Cooling Fan Recall Problems

Has anyone else had their car overheat shortly after having the recall done??

I dont even have 300 miles on it since it was done, and overheated at idle today. I took out the thing they put in between the harness and the fan, and it made it home fine.

What's the deal with this???

They installed a circuit breaker and it tripped. Take the car back and complain, make them fix it correctly. That is replace the fan and possible the CCRM.

I have been having this problem as well, and I just found out a couple of days ago on another related post about what those idiots decided to do for the recall, and i will be taking a trip to my friendly ford dealer as well to have this remedied.

I overheated about 20 miles after recall work . I took the car back they told me there was fuzz and bugs in the fan motor and they could clean it out for $75 ,YEAH RIGHT. I told them dont touch it and ill come pick the car up. Removed the stupid breaker they put on it , and it has been fine since. I dont trust dealerships i just got sick of receiving the recall letter so i had the work done. Also they said if breaker didnt fix the problem they are supposed to replace the fan motor.Obviuosly as usual they always come up with an excuse not to fix things right the first time if it cost them $. BUGS AND FUZZ HAHA

Has mine done a month ago. They inserted a module between the harness and fan. Immediately after, the car exhibited warm-starting problems ( crank, crank, crank but no start). Turns out that the EEC-IV's warm start strategy includes checking the fan.

I pulled the module out as well and the problem went away. I complained about it to the dealer. They took the module back and replaced it with another with a lower resistance value (102 ohms... the "bad" one as 120 ohms). The car warm-starts OK with this new one. The cars is off to bed for the winter. NOW I HOPE IT DOESN'T OVERHEAT in the spring!
