No, you are right..I’m guessing we haven’t heard the end of this saga. Hopefully I’m wrong!
I thought, the fan manufacturer thought, my best friend and Mopar brother thought, that with such a significant find of a major ground, that being the small gauge battery ground wire termination not having ANY wires in the termination loop that had several other circuits "ground" there, SURELY that MUST be the problem, and I stripped, crimped, and soldered the battery ground wire to a new loop termination, sanded all the others, added a lock washer and washer, made damn sure the "sandwich" of nut, termination loops, washer, lock washer and nut was tight, and then added a drop of blue lock time.
I didn't make it as far this time as yesterday, which wasn't as far as the day/night I picked up my Roadrunner.
So I smell the fan motor burning, I know the 200A breaker is going to trip and cut power to the whole car, so I was able to pull on to the shoulder of the Interstate.
I disconnected the 2 fan power leads coming from the 200A breaker output, and stayed on a route that would keep my speed at 45 MPH or higher, and the air flow kept the cooling system temperature in range.
I don't know what to do...
I want to try the 2x 12" fans I have IF they will fit between the radiator and the Wraptor. If so, then I have to find a way to mount them on the radiator. They would be powered independently, one relay out to one, one relay out to the other, and change the Dakota Digital PAC-2800BT electronic fan control module from "two" to dual (I think) The nice thing about the DD module is you can test the fan on/off function in the app to make sure they come on when you want them to.
I'd hate to burn both of them up too though. I guess I'll be sure that there's no way to mount a mechanical fan first, but I really don't think I can.
Again, the fan works GREAT, until it doesn't...
