    Has anyone else had issues with the aircon and radiator fans not working on an 8L?

    Mine stopped yesterday, I checked the fuse and the one as you look at the box on top of the battery was worn / dirty. I cleaned it up with some wet and dry and the fans kicked in afterwards. Then later in the evening they didnt!

    Its obviously not a massive problem (i.e radiator doesn't need replacing) but nether the less its quite frustrating.

    If cleaning the fuse made them work then its the fuse/fuse box on top of the battery... this is a common problem... its not just the fuse thats corroded, the fuse holder will be too and this leads to higher current draw which melts it and can in some cases catch fire...
