1. At the connector for the electric auxiliary fan, check for constant battery voltage on the Red/Blue wire.
2. Check for ground on the solid Brown wire.
3. After clearing codes in the Engine Control Module (ECM) and the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system module, and cycling the ignition key, backprobe the small Black/Green wire and check for voltage pulse immediately after starting, as the ECM checks function of the fan.
Replaced Auxiliary Coolant Fan
