Nov. 30, 1990
At high ambient temperatures of 105~F (41~C) and above, the radiator cooling fan stays on high speed with the ignition off, discharging the battery.
At these ambient temperatures, gas pressure of the R12 refrigerant activates the A/C high pressure switch and triggers the high speed radiator fan relay.
(Refer to applicable wiring diagram)
Replace the radiator fan high speed relay with Part No. 321 919 505A and modify the A/C high pressure switch wiring as follows:
relay, Part No. 321 919 505A
terminal housing, Part No. 161 971 989C
