89 condenser fan relay

Post by Larry H » Sat Dec 22, 2018 12:28 pm

My 89 XR has an electrical issue. With ignition off the condenser fan keeps spinning running battery down.
Is this the relays by driver side headlight the issue?
thanks Larry

Issue could be a failed coolant fan switch. It's mounted under the lower intake manifold, has a squarish harness connector so not the sensor with a black round connector which is for engine coolant temperature sender.
