    VR6 Fan Control Module Blown

    Hi all, so the temps in the VR have been rising.

    Note, engine has been rebuilt with all new switches ect

    The fans haven't been kicking in.

    Figured out the likely culprit is this!





    I'm guessing this is a fuse and a beefy one at that.

    Can I replace this or do I have to replace the whole unit?

    Any other input would be great

    Thanks

    You should just be able to change the fuse, had a quick google and it says it's a 20A fuse but not 100% sure. Fan controller looks different to my VR though, your picture in your profile shows a J reg rado, is it converted? I've never known that fuse to go so maybe check your earths etc. as well

    Red VR32.. WIP

    Thing is the fuse just looks like a strip of metal, no casing and I can't seem to find something suitable fuse wise anywhere.

    J-REG Photo is my old G60 so ignore that.

    Car is a 1993 VR6 (Early Distributor Model)

    This is avaliable on Amazon luckily, however; do I need to by a whole new unit or just attempt to fix that fuse if I can?

    Maybe wire in a inline fuse 30amp I think it is, but that would look messy wouldn't it lol.
