Actually channel 51 reads from the temperature sensor in the plastic coolant
T directly in front of the firewall (the coolant T that always
disintegrates). Your sensor has probably gone south in there, this will
definitely keep your heat on the cool side. I don't recall erratic fan
behavior in my case, but start with the sensor, I can dig up the part number
if you need it, it's the blue topped sensor.
