Fans and more problems

So I have the fans installed in the car. I cut the connectors off of the factory fans and soldered them on to the Mishimoto fans. This allows me to be able to remove the fans easily if I need to do so. I really do like plug and play. Even if I have to make the harness to do so.

I do have a problem where the driver side fan is not kicking on. This is a bit aggravating. I’m not seeing any voltage on the stock wiring harness. I will need to spend some time to figure this out. All of the relays kick on when I plug them in after telling the ECU to lock the fans on.

I also forgot to grab the boost gauge from my apartment this morning when I went to Denham. So I took the Talon and drove back to my apartment. I was almost back to my apartment and the car almost stalled slowing for a red light. That’s when I noticed my Innovative LC-1 was throwing E-8 as an error code. This points to a dead oxygen sensor. I have another new oxygen sensor that I can use to swap out. I have no tools in the car, so I used the laptop to lock the car in open loop mode so it would ignore the oxygen sensor. I drove it easily back home and parked it to let it cool down.

I’ll look at the car more tomorrow.

    RAIN! This ruins my plans. I can’t work on the car in weather like this. This sucks.
