HOPE FOR A SENSOR …
When gentlemen cannot win the game, they change its rules. Something similar is happening with the sensors for turning on the electric fan - general failures did not lead to the identification of their causes, but to numerous recommendations on how to do without a sensor at all, replacing it with a toggle switch. Another confirmation of this is the new product of the Moscow company Jet SMM (photo).
The forced fan button is designed to prevent overheating of the engine in case of failure of the aforementioned sensor. Everything is extremely simple - you go along the road and look at the temperature gauge: as soon as the arrow creeps into the forbidden sector, press the button. And if you get stuck in traffic or you are driving through the mountains, it is better to turn on the fan right away - it will not be worse.
