1. Cup of cold water
2. One cup of hot water
3. One small sandwich bag (no holes)
Start the car and let it idle in neutral with the e-brake on. Place the plastic bag corner over the shorter MPI temp probe, and sink it down into the hot water. (water should be over 110 degrees)
Within a short time after the probe has been submerged, the fans should come on.
Once that happens, remove the probe, and sink it into the cold water. The fan should stop running in a few seconds. Repeat this sequence with the Battery fan probe.
If everything is working to this point, you can proceed to installing the temp probes.
The white ground wire at the front of the harness must be connected to chassis ground or the fasn test will fail.(no ground)
|Placing the temp probes and fan diodes|
The four diodes are already tied into the harness, so all we need to do is install the probes in the correct locations, using the white thermal grease to optimize heat conduction to the probe.
Although the main switch is turned off, care must be exercised not to touch any exposed metal in the battery enclosure. Use one hand, and don't touch the car chassis.
|Remove the battery cooling fan|
Thermal grease to improve thermal transfer. Tuck into the gap between the orange sub pack and the black plastic holder.
|Improve the fan|
The battery temp probe wire should be zip tied to the existing fan power wire, so it cannot flop around. The harness zip ties should be clipped into the car chassis to support that harness as it originally was.
Put everything back together, install the rear electronics covers. Turn on the main switch, and put the storage insert and rugs back in , and level one is nearly complete
