Just did my '98 about a month ago after a sort in that plug fried my fan motor.
I think this is the problem I'm having. I thought it was the CCRM, however, when I replaced the CCRM the cooling fan was still out so I made a jumper wire to hot-wire it directly to the battery to see that the fan motor still works and the fuse is good too so I'm about 99.9% sure it's the pig-tail.
The only issue is that while the plug is pretty worn, it doesn't look like anything is melted and also since there are only 2 wires going into the pig-tail, but 3 pins on the connector, how would I wire this?
I bought 10g and 16g wire with the intent of setting up a hot-wire switch, however, since the relay is not accessible I'm guessing this'll be the easiest fix. Is there a how-to article for this?
Also is there a thread w/ common issues for the 94-98 3.8V6 models? So far in the 6 weeks I've had this car I've blown a head-gasket and dealt with a broken odometer gear, now this. Anything else I should be worried about? On the plus side, the fuel-pump was replaced prior to buying this car and I got it for $1800, but I'd prefer driving it over working on it
