About two weeks ago I noticed that the a/c was blowing but had stopped
cooling. I didn't immediately think much of it because I've had a/c
problems in teh past, so kept on driving.
A few minutes later the high temperature warning lamp came on
and I pulled over. A bit of checking things out showed me that
neither of the cooling fans (main radiator/ac) was running.
After letting things cool down I drove home (just a couple of
blocks) and left it overnight. The next morning I brought
it to the shop (close by so it didn't get too hot) and they
replaced the cooling control module.
Things were ok for a couple of days and then the a/c stopped
again. This time I checked things quickly, saw the temperature
gauge was climbing, etc. Let it cool off, went back to the
shop, and they re-replaced the control.
Again, ok for a couple of days. Then the same thing happened.
This time they sat the car outside the shop and the fans
came on... and stayed on (with occassional cycling) for the duration.
Took car home, and, eyup, you know what happened the next day.
The shop replaced the fan assembly and the controller and
things were ok for, eyup, another couple of days.
Yesterday the same thing happened. I brought the car to the shop this
morning and everything tested ok. They left it running for a couple of
hours (oy, the gas bill...) and the fans cycled fine, the temperature
stayed in the midrange, etc.
It's been working right the past few hours.
Anyone have any ideas? I've got this disturbing feeling that
it's going to die out again tomorrow or Sunday...
