Hi, standard electric fan on my 93 Rover Cooper SPI doesn't cut in. Motor checked OK. Joining the two wires at radiator sensor produces click at relay, but nothing more. Inline fuses in engine bay seem OK, though not sure which one controls electric fan as wire colours don't match Haynes manual.

Relay terminals...... Worth cleaning the terminals and plugs. Notorious for crudding-up. I splodge mine in vaseline (and the terminals.....!) before re-connecting

I would go with Peters suggestion (splodging your things with Vaseline !!) and I have also found that some of the relays that seem to be knocking around are quite poor quality...but they are cheap cost wise so I might be tempted to also swap the relay anyway....

Will try, thanks Peter. Now where did I leave the Vaseline? -- J

How have you got on with your problem ? (hopefully not a Vaseline shortage 😮 ) have you sorted it ?
