    The fans do not kick on, so I am thinking the work around modification was never done by the PO.

    Is there anything in the fan fail module position? If it has Dave's module it will not "click". I can't tell from the picture if it is empty or it has one of his modules.

    It's pretty common some POs made the fan fail jumpers by cutting pins and hard wired the jumpers.

    Okay, you have some trouble shooting to do. Was this car running when you took possession of it?

    What have you done to your DeLorean today?

    Follow up with my previous post


    Okay, you have some trouble shooting to do. There a two ways to force the fans to run without starting the engine. Both involve using bypass jumpers.

    Method 1: OTTERSTAT BYPASS:

    Make jumper wire with two 1/4Ē male spade terminals. Unplug both wires from the otterstat located in LH coolant pipe near Oil dipstick. Install jumper wire in the female terminals.

    Method 2: A/C mode switch to Max or normal will turn fans ON, IF System is charged and Key is ON. You will also here the A/C compressor clutch Click ON.
    If the system is low on charge, compressor clutch does not Click, you would need to install the ď jumper wireĒ in the AC low pressure switch harness located in the right front wheel well On the AC accumulator.

    Using method 1 or 2 under NORMAL conditions the Fan should run with the Key ON. If the Fan Fail socket is empty. The fans should not run, if they do, a hidden modification has been done in the relay compartment. If they donít run, you will need to build the Fan Fail bypass jumper mod or get the blue fused module from BITSYNCMASTR and install it in the fan fail socket.

    Thank you very much for writing that out! I will run through a see what kind of results come out of this.

    To your first post, the car ran poorly when I bought it and showed signs of neglect. I've since replaces the fuel system(DMCH pump/sender kit and new stainless fuel lines), fixed the oil leak, cleaned VoD, replaced all intake gaskets, replaced the clutch, new alternator, wires and plugs, and did the caliper rebuild. The car now runs worlds better then when I bought it. The Electronics are next on the list, but so far it looks like all Relays are original and should be replaced anyway.

    Good photos are your best friend in helping the DeLorean Gurus understand what you have.

    Here is a current photo of the Relay, the blue Fan Relay is indeed missing.

    Looks like the blue socket was replaced with a black one. So it may be the PO had a problem with melting connections. There should be all 5 pins in that socket. I would suggest you just try the jumpers in the socket to see if your fans will run. But I would also suggest your inspect the work (pins crimped and or soldered) because it's a common problem to see the pins overheat in that socket.

    I've got a black relay in my blue fan fail module socket. Is that just as good as a jumper to replace the fan fail module?
