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

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