Default Re: 01 pt cruiser radiator fan not working HELP

My Corvette has that extra fan in front of the radiator. It was wired to only come on at 230 degrees, way after the regular fan (behind the radiator) was already going. I rewired that other fan (called Auxiliary fan) so I can turn it on at will with a flip of a switch. Now, when it's really hot out (lots of times in Florida) and I know the car will sit idle for a few minutes, I flip the switch and I have one fan pushing air into the radiator, the other pulling air from the radiator and blowing over the engine. Keeps everything cool no matter how hot it is.

So yes, it can be done with the PT with just a bit of engineering work.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
