So I'm dicking with the relay to get power to the fan but I have a weird (in my opinion
) problem. I can't get any power to the side that sends power to the fan at all. I'm hooking up my relay as follows:
30 - Positive power from battery (through a fuse link)
87 - Positive power to fan's positive terminal
86 - Thermostatic switch
85 - 12V source from red MAF wire
I hooked up my volt meter to the 30 terminal to make sure I have power. I had ~12V thank gawd, and the 87 does not (at least it shouldn't, heh). However
, when I ground the thermo switch and the relay closes, I lose all power at the relay's terminals...even the 30 terminal. So in other words, once I ground the the switch, there's no power at either the 30 or
87 terminals. Why would this happen??
If I haven't provided enough info, please let me know. I'd really like to understand what's going on. Thanks...
