I had to stop-by because it was an unusual code. Plus I'm the annoying guy who shows up on an elusive '94 or '95 problem, and tells you it'* the ECM/PCM. I'm on my 3rd PCM on my '95, and I made a friend of a mechanic at the local exhaust shop. He had been fighting a CEL on his ignition circuit, and I gave him my $20 JY spare PCM, and it'* solved.
Now, I don't want to be rude or kibitz, and my wife and I love our cars... But does anybody want to discuss the relative merits of engineering that tinkertoy fan and the transmission on the same circuit?
. The resistor/BCM and fan are just sitting naked on the firewall, waiting to get gunked or shorted. Of course I never knew it was set up that way till now, but it just seems funny to me.
Quite admirable diligence and persistence by all involved. And a great find, cspoonts.
I see there is more to do. But y'all have taken the impossible for a professional, and made it quite possible, by way of the community. Bravo. (Standing O!)
