Maybe Not FSU

I apologize if this was covered. I did not read this thread carefully, but me fan motor stopped working abruptly. I assumed it was the FSU. I ordered one and went to install it. No go. So I found this post and did this test to see if the fan Motor was broken:

I tried jumping the fan motor by this method: http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...822/page2.html


When I tried this the motor worked! I then hooked up the new FSU and all has worked for 2 months. I have not tried the old FSU. I prefer to leave well enough alone.

So I have to question how many FSUs are blamed for the fan being stuck or whatever happened to mine.
