My 96 mx6's radiator fans (neither side) will not turn on at all until the temp reads 226*. This seems to be a rather high number to me, and now that i live in the desert the summer will be brutal. I want to jump on this now and fix it (if its not working properly, which i highly suspect).
I've read on here that the drivers side fan should kick on low at 210*, and then BOTH fans on high at 226*. Mine will only both come on full blast at 226, which to me seems way too hot.
All this is being read by an aftermarket autometer full sweep gauge so it (should) be extremely accurate. I do not want to wire a power feed line to control them with a manual switch, i want it to be factory if possible.
possibilities ive already considered, but not acted on:
a) i am using a KLG8 computer. I wouldnt assume that its cooling fan temperature settings would be different, but who knows. Do you?
b) One/both of my factory temp sensors are not working properly. I have to slightly doubt this, because both fans are coming on full blast at 226, when they should.
c) If the sensors are the problem, maybe a different make vehicle that uses the KL would have a lower temp switch i could snatch?
Basically im wondering if anyone knows the degree that their fans kick on, any possibilities that could cause/fix my situation, or anyone elses similar problems that have been solved. :spin:
