Magic button is 'standard' on all cars now......It is under the left side of dash , just to the right of the steering column. Use 12 guage (double barrel works best) to 're-set'! . . . retired . . stupidity is not chosen , but BEING stupid IS.............

If it's a 'mechanical fan-with a fan clutch' , then the fuse you are blowing is for a DIFFERENT fan.......perhaps interior blower motor?.........A/C condensor fan(maybe mounted between grill & rad/cond)? OR as the ever reliable pushrod stated info could be WRONG...........sorry...:)

maybe it's a combination of both, Get a second opinion from a shop you trust.And ask to see the 'play' in the tie rods before they replace them. A trustworthy shop won't mind showing you .

Very vague and good style to scare someone into repairs.I've seen that type of visual tactic used to scare uneducated people into many unnecessary repairs over the span of 30 years.Seeing is believing? YEAH. JUST MY OPINION. What other info was the client given?What about the newer T/Cs with hydraulic tensioners etc.?I'm sorry I'm such a sceptic ,and I apologize for sounding offensive , I'm just very defensive of the consumer.
Comment: Tire Pressure Monitor Systems Explained

First , I would like to agree with the comments regarding the safety aspects of having TPMS on cars.Second ,working at a dealership and being paid on a flat rate basis , I can't stand having to waste time on checking peoples air pressure (when that's all they come in for!). In most owners manuals ,to this day , it still states to check fluid levels and tire pressures at each fill up. Whatever happened to OWNER RESPONSIBILITY? IF it's so simple , that we should do it for free , then why isn't it simple enough for the owner? This IS just my opinion.
