"A thermo switch sometimes called a fan switch is a temperature sensor. Usually close to the radiator in your vehicle engine this device is the one that switches on the fan as soon as the engine/ radiator reaches a set temperature." - www.autosensors.co.uk
I can't believe it was staring us in the face the entire time. I had no idea about thermo switches until that day but why didn't I check the fan? We tested it and confirmed that the right radiator fan really wasn't turning on. A total facepalm moment.
So anyway, I was surprised to find out how easy it is to replace a thermo switch so I went ahead and tried it myself. Didn't have my nails done yet so it's perfect timing for a DIY session. :)
WHAT YOU NEED:
- A brand new thermo switch (of course)
- 24-inch open wrench
- A glass of soda and chips to reward yourself when you're done.
