1
CHECK POWER SUPPLY TO SUB FAN MOTOR. CAUTION: Be careful not to overheat engine during repair. 1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Disconnect connector from sub fan motor and main fan motor. 3) Start the engine, and warm it up until engine coolant temperature increases over 100C(212F). 4) Stop the engine and turn ignition switch to ON. 5) Measure voltage between sub fan motor connector and chassis ground. Connector & terminal (F16) No. 2 (+) - Chassis ground (-):
Is the voltage more than 10 V?
Go to step 2.
Go to step 5.
2
CHECK GROUND CIRCUIT OF SUB FAN MOTOR.
1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Measure resistance between sub fan motor connector and chassis ground. Connector & terminal (F16) No. 1 - Chassis ground:
Is the resistance less than 5Q?
Go to step 3.
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between sub fan motor connector and chassis ground.
3
CHECK POOR CONTACT.
Check poor contact in sub fan motor connec­tor.
Is there poor contact in sub fan motor connector?
Repair poor con­tact in sub fan motor connector.
Go to step 4.
4
CHECK SUB FAN MOTOR.
Connect battery positive (+) terminal to termi­nal No. 2, and negative (-) terminal to termi­nal No. 1 of sub fan motor connector.
Does the sub fan rotate?
Repair poor con­tact in sub fan motor connector.
Replace sub fan motor with a new one.
5
CHECK POWER SUPPLY TO SUB FAN RELAY.
1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Remove sub fan relay from A/C relay holder. 3) Measure voltage between sub fan relay terminal and chassis ground. Connector & terminal (F28) No. 23 (+) - Chassis ground (-):
Is the voltage more than 10 V?
Go to step 6.
Go to step 7.
6
CHECK POWER SUPPLY TO SUB FAN RELAY.
1) Turn ignition switch to ON. 2) Measure voltage between sub fan relay terminal and chassis ground. Connector & terminal (F28) No. 21 (+) - Chassis ground (-):
Is the voltage more than 10 V?
Go to step 10.
Go to step 9.

CHECK 20 A FUSE.
1) Remove 20 A fuse from A/C relay holder. 2) Check condition of fuse.
Is the fuse blown-out?
Replace fuse.
Go to step 8.
8
CHECK POWER SUPPLY TO A/C RELAY HOLDER 20 A FUSE TERMINAL.
Measure voltage of harness between A/C relay holder 20 A fuse terminal and chassis ground. Connector & terminal (F27) No. 3 (+) - Chassis ground (-):
Is the voltage more than 10 V?
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between 20 A fuse and sub fan relay terminal.
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between main fuse box connec­tor and 20 A fuse terminal.
9
CHECK FUSE.
1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Remove fuse No. 17 from joint box. 3) Check condition of fuse.
Is the fuse blown-out?
Replace fuse.
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between sub fan relay and ignition switch.
10
CHECK SUB FAN RELAY.
1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Measure resistance of sub fan relay. Terminal No. 23 - No. 24:
Is the resistance more than 1 MQ?
Go to step 11.
Replace sub fan relay.
11
CHECK SUB FAN RELAY.
1) Connect battery to terminals No. 21 and No. 22 of sub fan relay. 2) Measure resistance of sub fan relay. Terminal No. 23 - No. 24:
Is the resistance less than 1 Q?
Go to step 12.
Replace sub fan relay.
12
CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN SUB FAN RELAY TERMINAL AND SUB FAN MOTOR CONNECTOR.
Measure resistance of harness between sub fan motor connector and sub fan relay termi­nal. Connector & terminal (F16) No. 2 - (F28) No. 24:
Is the resistance less than 1 Q?
Go to step 13.
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between sub fan motor and sub fan relay connector.
13
CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN SUB FAN RELAY AND ECM.
1) Turn ignition switch to OFF. 2) Disconnect connector from ECM. 3) Measure resistance of harness between sub fan relay connector and ECM connector. Connector & terminal (F28) No. 22 - (B134) No. 12 (SOHC MODEL): (F28) No. 22 - (B84) No. 10 (SOHC w/o OBD MODEL): (F28) No. 22 - (B137) No. 28 (DOHC TURBO MODEL):
Is the resistance less than 1 Q?
Go to step 14.
Repair open cir­cuit in harness between sub fan relay and ECM.
14
CHECK POOR CONTACT.
Check poor contact in connector between sub fan and ECM.
Is there poor contact in connector between sub fan motor and ECM?
Repair poor con­tact connector.
Contact your Subaru distributor.
NOTE:
Inspection by your Subaru distributor is required,
because probable cause is deterioration of multiple
parts.
