1995 90 Radiator Fan Speeds Not Working
*First, let me say hi, and thanks for any help. I am a poor college kid and I try to do all my own work. I keep it clean and do all the routine maintence that I can do myself. I'm keeping the car stock, as purchased, no mods like exhaust or spoilers or silly **** like that for a 170hp FWD car. I just need it to be reliable and get me where I'm going, and I'm slowly but surely eliminating the bugs I bought it with! I need some help sometimes, though..
I'm ew to the forum but I've had the car 3 years. Haunting old posts didn't show anything quite like what I'm looking for.
The problem is that I believe I am supposed to have multiple radiator fan speeds, but as it is I only have one- full tilt when the engine is really hot. The temp will climb to a point, kick it on, cool off, repeat. The fusebox shows I think two empty relay spots and the fuse panel mentions "speed 1" and "speed 2".
Other notable things: my AC doesn't hold pressure and so doesn't work. I don't care, windows are fine by me. But might that cause it to not kick on the slower speed? I know they're the same fans. When I push the AC button a slower speed comes on and will help a lot to hold a steady medium temp on a warm day. I am not afraid to do this, but I don't want to burn up my AC compressor or something if it is trying to kick it on.
What should I look for to be wrong...? Relay? Wiring? Did this car in reality just not have multiple speeds? (Could I get a dummy pully to put in place of the AC compressor?) I'm running back to the stealership today to return a gallon of untouched G12 and I'll ask them too.
I really appreciate the help!
