Ford ikon/bantam/fiesta radiator fan (not aircon fan infront

Postby flouwford » Mon Nov 16, 2015 9:05 pm

Now for the next interesting thing.

Finaly as soon as the rain settled i could open up garage and let the ikon run hot till fan comes on. Everything is dry and sound.
BUT. The fan is running the wrong way.

Interestingly, nowhere i can spot any wiring being fiddled with from the fan, to speed switch, to relay box.
everything still looks factory.

Now my only conclusion, the previous fan packed up, and the replaced it from another model.
Where the fans wires plug into the rest of the loom, on that plug the wire coulors swop over.

I can easily cut and swop the wires over at the fan itself. But not sure if there might be something else broken. That wil make the direction chance. My mind tells me its impossible. But i have been wrong before.

Any thoughts?

DC fans normally have protection built in for when the polarity is changed. So chances are that it will not spin.

Give it a try. I might have a fan from a '98 fezz for you if you blow than one up.
