I have a pressure sensor on order, so hopefully that will fix the 2nd fault, but the fan issue i am not sure about, with the ac on the fans come on in short 3 or 4 second bursts and then stop, not sure if that is related to the pressure sensor issue, I gave not notice any overheating, but I am not sure if the fans are knackered (seems to be a lot of posts about issues with fans failing) or the control modue for the fan is knackered, I also tried the output test on the engine for fan 1 and fan 2, and they do not run the fans. Any help appreciated.
