12 Volt Windshield Fans stopped working
« on: April 05, 2019, 01:49:04 AM »
Hi All

So my wife and I installed our pull down sun screen on front windshield area today. In the process we had to lower 12 volt metal fans. We did not undo wiring, they just hung in place. We installed the sun screen put fans back in place. Neither of the fans work now. Any thoughts? Maybe ground wire came loose? Thanks.

Jason,
If you hung the fans with only the wires supporting them you probably have a connection that pulled loose, either in the fans or at the 12v source. My bet would be at the source.

Found both ground wires had disconnected. Reconnected both wires and fans are now operating. Thanks for the top
