I have a 98 ford escort se, 2.0 sohc with about 148,000 miles on it. recently, the car overheated, so i checked the fuses. the 40 amp fuse was blown, so i replaced it, thinking that fixed the problem. the fuse blew again after a couple of days, so i took the fan motor out and jumped it to the battery. it kicked on and ran fine.
However, the fan will not run unless you turn the a/c on. then it will run fine and keep the car running at a normal temp for a few days, and then the fuse will blow. I am not sure what the problem is here, it may be a combination of things, but i am determined to fix this without taking it in. The CCRM is about a year old, and the a/c has no problems. I think it is either: a short in the high-speed switch/wiring; an old motor that is pulling too many amps; and/or a bad coolant temp sensor. Maybe it's all three. Sorry for the long post, but I am at my wit's end with this thing!

okay great, thanks for all that. I'm not as good with electrical as with other things, but i will check it. Do you know where the ground wire for the fan is grounded to? it all runs into some plastic conduit, so i can't really chase the wire.
