It only does this in the summer time I have also noticed it is when I have the a/c on too. I can let it cool down or when the temperture outside cools down to the 80's it starts back up and drives fine like nothing ever happened. This is the 4th summer this has happened. Never a problem in the winter time. Its happens in alot of stop and go traffic especially.

I do hear steam escaping from within the engine bay. When the ignition is first switched on there is a 'clicking' sound like a short circuit from the radio area of the dashboard.The car has done 280,000 Km, and has never given any problems till now! Please help

My fan motor takes 10 minutes to start working when cold. The colder the longer it takes to start. Sometimes colder than zero I have to shut it off wait 5 minutes then try it again. Summer it seems to be OK. Final stage replaced, control unit reworked. I did notice I'm not getting power to the final stage when all this is taking place. Question, where does the power come from that feeds the final stage? Can it be as simple as a fuse? Also, when it's not working it looks like it is. Temp settings, fan speed bar display all look OK, but it's not.
Thanks for any direction
