(i never had the ac working at full capacity up until now as im finding out today, and i didnt even realize). So up until now, the aux fan wouldnt always come on while the AC was on, it would only come on for a few mins spinning very fast and then shut off, and so on. After changing the FSU today, the aux fan is on almost all the time (i say almost, because the rest of the time im driving and cant really tell) while the AC is on, and the amount of air into the cabin is at least double what i used to get before. Needless to say, the blower no longer has a mind of its own. Is this just a coincidence or does the FSU somehow also control the aux fan along with the temp switch and other items? Just wanted to share what i found today.
that's what my car does as well,which I think is how it shud work, come on only when needed ie when the condenser temps increases
