How to test the rad fan

5367 Views 18 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  swampX3
Hi all,

just after some help on testing the rad fan on my x3 3.0d. The car got hot the other day while stuck in traffic but I didn't notice the cooling fan kick in. I've tried putting the Air con on to trigger it but nothing. I've now removed the fan from the car but struggling to get any luck from it by adding voltage to it.
Is there a way to put some power into it for a test.
Thanks in advance

Hi Swampx3

Will this part work? I am worried there are multiple versions of the fan. Are they specific to the engine type (petrol/diesel) or size?
