The coolant temperature sensor on the wet thermostat is to send temperature information to the engine ecu . the engine ecu decides IF the fan should be on and activates relays to power the plug at the bottom of the fan shroud ,
that plug is a fan speed resistor , depending on how hot then rad is ,the resistor pack will turn on the fan and control it's speed ,and send info back to the ecu to say what speed etc
you'd need to back probe that plug with power to the L+ and N- which is best done fan removed (because it's a pig to reach and it will probably bring the fan on ,which will eat any fingers etc anywhere near it , so be careful

re the relays , one failing will stop the fan working , as will any blown fuse in the circuit , it's not a back up relay system .

also in live data you could check fan control 1, 2 and 3 (active or inactive) radiator coolant temperature voltage and temp reading when warm etc

also also with the  :-X codereader :-X you can do output tests to check fan and blower motors

also also also  ;D did you confirm that the car has NO aircon ? and never has
 I.E compressor,condenser,front rad fan not present  :-\
The car has no aircon.
I tried checking control of the fan with my Chinese code and live reader.
As shown in pic, I have found the resistor behind the plug on the lead to the fan, but I do not think it controls the fan speed, that is done by the ECU. There are 2 relays shown in Haynes, one turns on the fan at a lower speed, the current going through the resistor, and the other feeds current direct to the fan motor. I reckon the resistor is located where it is to be cooled by the fan draught.

Auto dimming mirror is basically plug and play :y

Especially if you buy one that has the correct plug... Change over is around '51 :y

If we are to remain in the EU, we need to take a leaf from France's book. That is, ignore the rules and refuse to pay the fines.

That'll never happen!  ::)

If anything our establishment will become even more slavish!  :)
Well as most of Poland, Romania and Portugal are already here, it only seems reasonable that the Slavic types get a look in...  ;)

hi folks i picked the old girl up this morning well happy with her full service history up to last year and she has got heated seats in the front, she has got traffic master fitted, does this service still in use, also is it possible to fit sat nav and how eay is it to fit auto diming mirrior.
thanks in advance, :)

Just to add: The unemployment rate nationally is 4.3%, in Liverpool it is 4.8%. Lazy bastards, eh?  ::)
statistics are all well and good but don't take into account
1: how many people in Liverpool are too scared to leave their house and worldly goods to sign on for fear of being robbed .
2: people who make so much cash on the rob that they don't bother to sign on .
3: statistics tend to be from government figures , and get massaged   :-X

I saw a claim on another forum that buried in the Lisbon Treaty is a provision to standardise the way healthcare is delivered across the EU.

Now I'm no expert on this but as far as I'm aware most countries on the continent operate a hybrid system where people have to have basic health insurance and governments pick up the tab for the rest via taxation. In the Republic of Ireland for example it costs about 60 Euros to see a GP I believe?  ::)

If this is true it seems likely that if we ended up staying in the EU and the EU decided to standardise healthcare, the government of the day would be forced to restructure the NHS to a European system where we all have to have health insurance and maybe even end the principle of free at the point of delivery.  :-\  ::)

The obvious answer is No, we'd just Veto it!, but and this where it gets interesting as the EU are due to end national vetoes and issues will be decided with Qualified Majority Voting.  So it seems likely that if this is true and happened, more countries would vote to keep the status quo rather than restructure their healthcare systems.  ;)

I havn't read the Lisbon Treaty so it might be a huge conspiracy theory, but it's an interesting thought non the less!  :)

And the next time you come across some shouty Momentum leftie/remainer headbanger claiming that the Tories are going to sell the NHS to the Yanks, this is a handy comeback!  :y  ;D

Fake news.

Doing so requires treaty change, which in turn requires the unanimous approval of all EU28/EU27 member states. The veto exists unless we (and every other EU country) chose to give it up.

Same for all this tosh about rebates, EU army, forced into Schengen, forced to use the Euro etc. I've no doubt that some in the EU would like these things to happen, but it can't unless all EU members agree.

Merkel and Macron signed a new bi lateral treaty today, after which Merkel announced "this will contribute greatly towards the creation of an EU army".  :)

So for free money all we need to do is nick a JCB and go on a rampage!  :y

Just in Liverpool? or would this apply elsewhere?  ???  :-\
A JCB with a Montabert will allow you to withdraw money from most cash machines if you forget your pin code  :y
makes a mess though  :-\ and the rozzers turn up and try to steal all your hard earned cash  :P
 so don't hang about  :y
