Question about 1996 Pontiac Firebird
My 1996 Pontiac Firebird is running hot and I believe that the fan is not coming on, how can I verify if this is what's wrong and if it's a relay how can I check to find out if I have a bad relay?
You can do the following with a cold car.
The switch for the electric fan is in the radiator (it responds to the temperature of the water in the radiator, not the temperature of the water in the engine). With the engine running, if the switch has 2 wire on it, pull those two wires and briefly touch them together. If it has only 1 wire, tough that wire to ground. The fan should come on. If it does, the problem is the switch. If not, then the relay or the fan, or the fan's fuse is to blame.
