Should the auxillary fan move when you turn it with your hand? Mine doesn't and I was wondering if it was seized. Could this be causing my fuse #20 to short circuit? Thanks for any help I can get.

I had the same problem recently, my mechanic told me he would save me hundreds of $'s he checked the electric fan and it wasn't turning with the air conditioner on. He check the fan fuse and it was blown, he replaced it then tried to spin the fan with a long screwdriver through the grill. He could move it but it never started turning. A recheck of the new fuse showed it had already blown. New fan time! Hang on to your walet, just the price of the fan was $550.00+ not counting the lab to instal.
