Upon checking fans are not working. Replaced relays and still nothing. when we connected a wire to the fan motor and the other end to the positive cable on battery, fan worked-did the same to the other motor and fan worked. could the problem be the thermostat control sensor? If not, what else could it be?

it usually stals after driving a couple miles, at the begining, a month ago, the car would stall intermitenly going for days, but now it is happenning more frequently. for example the mechanic has changed the fuel pump, the ignition switch module and tuned up the car.

The hex thread assembly on the motor crank arm keeps loosening, causing the whole motor crank arm assembly to slip off the motor. Other than continuously tightening the bolt,what are the options?

Battery died over the weekend on my 2002 Silhouette, so I had to replace it myself. Now my Traction control and ABS are off. TCS reset button does nothing, and it appears my fogger light might also be off. The fuse box, wiring and all, are located on top of the battery. Thought maybe I blew a fuse. Is there a fuse that runs all or some of these functions, and which fuse would need to be replaced? Any other suggestions.
