'95 Cougar 4.6L V8 Cooling Problems
My car has been having cooling problems since I bought it. The fan doesn't kick on most of the time. I've tried replacing the sensor, control relay module, and have tested the fan itself. Right now, we're trying to hook up a manual switch. My understanding is that I need a relay (we tried it without, but it just burns out the fuse after a few seconds).
My questions are : Would I be able to use just a general relay instead of wiring it through the module, and, if so, what amp rating would I need?
I know, probably newbie questions, but my area of specialty is computers, not cars.
