Default ac fan issues

the other day i noticed that my ac was not performing like it usually does. i thought nothing of it until i started moving for a few minutes, and it returned to normal. i looked under the hood suspecting that the secondary fan for the ac wasnt running, to find out i was correct. when i got home, i put the code tester on it, to find that both fans fire up perfectly fine. what gives. also, since this started up, my bonnie doesnt want to idle when i start it up and leave for work in the morning until it has warmed up for a minute. what gives? is my computer walking out on me?

Reset the ECU.. it'll act a little weird at first, but after 25 miles or so, it'll relearn everything. I doubt you ECU is walking on you, if you cross the A and B terminals and both fans fire up, then I betcha all is good.

Slightly off topic, but I rigged up me AC fan to come on with the regular cooling fan. Instant dual fan setup, as my AC'* never worked since I got the car. Needs condenser :(

You might want to try this dual fan setup running full time if it won't come on with the AC. As simple as splicing and wiring it over.
