Hi,

I'm in a situation where my car is about 200 km's away from my apartment with my tools. The problem is that the Engine Fan stays on all the time.
Outside Air Temp: 3C
Cold Start.
Fan is ON.
Engine Temp reaches 80+ then noticibly drops fast to 80-.
The Icon with a Thermometer appears on the cockpit display.
10 minutes of driving around, no change.
Engine Off.
Fan stays ON.
3 to 5 minutes later Fan is OFF.
If Accessories or trunk is opened, Fan is ON.

I've read 2 threads:
1. The Swedish guy with F132 Pre-Fuse in this forum.
2. au.autologic.com/news/engine-cooling-fan-running-at-constant-high-speed

I do have access to EPC and WIS but they are 200km's away and I only have that cute Hazet 1/4" tool set.

What I would like to know is if there are problems created by driving 3 hours with Fan ON and Temp at 80C?
Or, Is there a fuse I can pull (easily - accessible without pulling the Pre-Fuse or whatever) to stop the Fan from running?

Any advice or sympathy would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!!!

Simply unplug the fan. Big fat connector.

Thanks, I got the same image but that is for a 272 and mine is a 273. Anyway, I'm going Plan B which is to remove fuse 22 tomorrow.

272 and 273 all use the same exact fan.

Thanks for double checking, appreciated.

I checked the car again and the connector is not on the passenger side upper radiator hose. I'll figure this out later, too cold outside...

It's either at the driver side, or at the bottom. Just look for the super thick cables and follow it until it terminates at a connector.
