Default Re: Stuck on the cooling fan...

Thanks. The ECTS connector was clean, and I'll check the sensor ... likely won't get to it for a few days. As far as jumpering the contacts on the ECTS connector, I followed the instructions from "diagnosing the cooling fan" in Wolfman's how-to guide on this forum:

1. Disconnect the ECTS (Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor) connector.
2. Connect the two contacts inside the connector together with the two ends of a small paper clip.
3. Then turn on the car (either start the engine or turn the key to "RUN" without starting the engine).

The car is running same as before, so I don't believe I shorted out the computer.
