Ok, so I get out of my car trying to figure out how to turn off the radio, so I just pull face the plate off, enable the alarm and leave, but for some reason the fans were on, so I thought they would shut off in a few minutes. I get out the next morning, go in the car, turn the key, nothing , no power in the car at all, clock is dead, interior lights dead. So I presume the battery is flat dead. Tried to jump the car pos+pos, neg-neg, got sparks, so I read somewhere it was supposed to be neg-ground. Today, I went out, got my bike charger, hooked it up correctly, turned it to 10amps, fans kicked , but its 0 degrees outside, why would the fans kick, I go inside, lights on, clock is working. Try to crank all I get is click click click, nothing. So I'm thinking the battery still has to charge, so what do you guys think is going on? Do you think the battery is draining the battery but why?

the fans are stuck on. stuck relay? bad sender? how do you have the fans wired up? it sounds like if you disconnect/fix the fans and give it 15-20 minutes it will be fine

Is this the stock TII fan? What year? Aftermarket fan? What kind?



If its stock, the fuse could have blown keeping the fan in the on position.

The fans only kick in on when the ignition switch is off lock and in the first positition. But I don't know how the previous owner had them setup. It should be the stock fan, but the car is an 88 TII. Where can I find the fan relay? If I take it out, and put it back in, should the fans go back to normal?



I went outside, set the charger to 50amps, cranked, engine started turning over, clicked the fuel pump switch on, bam! starting running. So I get out take off the charger, leave. Come back car is off, battery dead again, so I hook up the charger again hoping to get it going again.

I figured out what happened..



I noticed I can pull the key out of the ignition when the car was on, so I remembered the fans were still on when I left the night before. I looked at the ignition, and when I have it in ACC the fans are on, but when I had it in lock the fans shut off. So I must have pulled the keys out in ACC thinking it was in lock, thus leaving the fan running.
