    I had a problem with the radiator cooling fan...it seized up! I bought a
    replacement motor for the fan, hooked it all up, installed it...and
    nothing! I even ran the car for a while thinking it was temperature

    I am wondering if there is a relay, or maybe an in-line fuse that I can
    check to see if there is another problem.

    To test it, I touched it directly to the battery, and it started spinning
    just fine. But when it's connected and installed, again, nothing. Using a
    test light, I connected the lead to the positive side of the battery, and
    touched the lead to the negative side of the battery. Nice bright glowing
    light. However, when I touched it to the fan wires, only a light about
    half as bright came on. There are only 2 wires that are connected to
    it...black and green.

    I have looked everywhere I can think of to find a diagram of the
    electrical or cooling system, and no luck. I hope someone here has some
    good advice for me. :)

  2. Your previous fan motor began drawing too much current. This blew the
    fusible link wire(s) which are upstream of the radiator fan and A/C
    compressor clutch relays. You need to find these fusible links (they are
    on the driver's side of the engine bay) and replace them. DO NOT attempt
    to replace them with anything other than the correct gauge and length of
    fusible link wire!

    Thank you for the reply.

    If I can ask 1 more question, this fusible link, is this just like an
    in-line fuse that can be replaced, or is it a length of wire with some
    type of enclosed unit that has to be replaced as a whole?

  4. It is a length of specially-insulated wire, 4 gauge sizes smaller than the
    wire it protects. The fusible link wire has to be cut out and replaced
    with the correct length of the correct gauge size of fusible link wire.
    DON'T attempt to use regular wire or a fuseholder and fuse or any other
