Default How many AMPS does a stock civic radiator fan pull?

I have a perma-cool radiator fan, think its pulling alot more amps than the stock fan is. causing my rad. fan relay to burn-up frequently!

If you know anyone with a multimeter you can figure that out pretty easily.

sorry, but i said i have an aftermarket fan installed on the car, sooooo i dont have a stock fan to see how many its pulling.

i have a fluke multimeter & a amp clamp, im going to the garage to see the difference between what the stock fan pulls, compared to my permacool rad. fan

I can confirm that my amp draw from my perma-cool fan is 9.5amps

yes, the radiator or condensor fan should only pull approx. 8-12 amps. some motors vary. it's been a year since i tested the last one, but thats a ballpark figure

the stock relay should hold that.. but you can always put your own relay

Mine pulls 8.1 amps. Check to be sure the ground on the fan and the ground on the relay is good.
