Some help is needed. The 200 STEADItqw 20v had developed an
intermitant idle problem. When coasting up to a light the car would
occasionally die. It would start by gently popping the clutch or
restart with the key. Assumed time for a cleaning of the ISV. While
under the hood, I took a look at the fuses. The #2 relay looks fried.
It appears to be one of the fan relays. The fan _seems_ to be
working. It runs with a/c and runs if car is standing for a while.
Also runs a few minutes after car is shut off.
Only electrical changes are upgrade to headlights with individual
relays and recent addition of new radio and cd changer. Radio now
hot wired to ignition key. No indication of any connection to relay.
BTW, #3 relay has same number, "214" but is turned 90 degrees. Any
ideas? Should I just replace relay (seems silly without knowing
cause) I'm going on a trip in 2 weeks and the spousal unit would not
appreciate getting stranded after all the things I had to tell her to
get the car in the first place. Many TIA.
