Question Radiator Fan Test

my bird overheated last week,, my fan never came on. can't you just run a couple jumper wires to the battery to check it? like take it out and do it.. i even saw something about turning on the a.c and the fan was supposed to come on mine never did. thanks in advance..

lowered 1.5'' with vogtlands,, tokico ''blues'' on all 4 corners... 28% mirror tinted windows,, P.I.Intake swapped,, S.C side skirts and rear bumper..

check the coolant temp sensor. they are like $7 at autozone... most likely your culprit.

Certainly. You can check both speeds with that method, as it's just a two-speed electric motor after all.
