You may overheat without it especially with the AC turned on. If you can't find a factory replacement or a used on then try going aftermarket. Most parts stores will help you in getting the correct size and a mounting kit if needed. You can use the factory wiring just make sure you get the right polarity so it runs the right direction

The driver side fan had to connections I had to undo? What was the second one? And how do I see why the passenger side fan doesn't work ( I left my car in park for 10 minutes and had the heat on and i didn't see it go on?


The engine cooling fan is controlled by a thermoswitch on the engine most are set to turn on around 220 degrees coolant temperature so sitting idling with the heat turned on would not be long enough for it to get to that temperature, if you have a live data scan tool you can watch the ECT readings climb and when it gets to that temp the fan should kick on. You can jumper the connector at the thermoswitch and listen for the relay to click and the fan motor to run, that will confirm the circuit is good, but to test the switch it has to be at that high temperature to close the circuit. The AC fan also uses a relay turned on by the AC switch, turn on the switch you should hear a relay click and the AC fan should run. On some of the smaller systems both fans will run if the AC is selected.
