Warning!!!!- (harness Canibalism) by mayor2013: 3:54pm On Sep 19, 2018
This warning goes out to all car users on this fora. Cannibalism of engine harness and dash harness has become an order of the day for a lot of street mecho. It saddens my heart when I see great rides highly cannibalised. Canibalised to the extent of chopping of engine harness here and there. There are two case study currently in my workshop. A ford focus 2006 and a Toyota rav4 2010. Am getting to see a case where a battery voltage wire has been peeled off and couldn't be wrapped up properly with insulators and same touches the body. That's a big disaster. The ford focus on its own was lite up in flames as a result of harness canibalism . This is dangerous and could kill your rides in time. For the Rav4 fan was running directly and despite trying to prevent overheating polarity of fan wires were connected In a reversed directly which made engine region and ecu over hot like who is frying some akara grin

Let's all be carefull. stay safe with your rides

There is no wiring with the thermostat, its a device that emerses in water completly that works expanding to open and contracting to close,No wire pure mechanical., its usually in ahousing, you open it pop it out the put new one wahlaaa.

i know how to fix the thermostat sir..but i think the wiring that makes the fan on has been tampered with..hence my call out for good rewire..cos it was fixed sometime ago and the fan did not pick up automatically ,

Some modern vehicles actually have electronically controlled/assisted thermostat .
ECU can open the thermostat, temperature also opens it .

Are you conversant with digital multimeters?? If yes I can talk whatsapp you though the process of restoring you fan grin

I am assuming the tampering did not involve the removal of any temperature sensor or switch and we are talking about your 2005 EOD
