    first little problem electric

    need some help plz lads, just fitted jbi fmic 63mm not thats the problem, it came with the two fans ive fitted them to the air con rad as you do, wired them up thinkin id done it correct
    2 X blue wire from the 2new fans TO the red wire comin off the resitor
    2 X black from new fans TO the brown wire off the reistor

    turned on the engine the light came on went off as is its ment to all good l thought . went for a drive bout to try cooler after 20mins or so of drivin then coolant light came on, so pulled over everythin looked fine then just 1 of the new fans came on temp needle was at 90ish neva had this prob with old fans.
    wondered if l may have got me wires the wrong way round carnt really swop the wires now without takin the bumper off again. O yeh l scotch the 2 wires together blue on blue then bulleted 1blue into the red and same for the other hope that makes sense.

    any replys gratefull

    If only one fan's coming on then that's the problem. ECU monitors the current draw of the fans and if it's not approximately the same as the oem fan it will MIL.

    Also, cooling module monitors the temp of the condensor, if it gets too hot, it throws up a MIL as well... (should be hot on the reservoir side and cool on the other when a/c is on)

    wiring sounds ok from what you described.. if one fan is working correctly, it's probably a bad solder/crimp, or faulty fan.
