I misspoke on the upper temperature limit. The fan starts to cool the battery at 80F, not 75F. I don't know where I got the 75F from, must of been something else I was working on as the fan was always set to start cooling at 80F.fyi, one of the more critical IMA DTCs, P1449-74, has a minimum temperature threshold of 77 degrees F. If the pack is kept to only 75F this fault would never register... I'd think you should have the fan set to around 80F...
It is, but depending on what charger you have you must hook it up differently. If you are using our charger, Mike's Genesis One, or any charger that is actively monitoring the pack's temperature, then you must connect to the fan after the control board. This means you must run the charger's 12V fan power inside of the shroud and directly tape the red(+)/black(-) wires going to the fan. This allows the fan to run at full speed as the variable speed can end up tricking the charger's logic into shutting down too early.Is this mod compatible with the grid charger harness? Having already spliced into my existing fan wire, and mounted the temp probe for that.
There are 3-4 potential causes for P1449, and it's more commonly a battery failure. Did you blink the codes?The upgraded fan will not shut off during low speed driving or when stopped like the current fan does if cooling is needed. This is the perfect time to cool the battery as its typically not under much load, but the stock fan would shut down to provide a quiet cabin.
Does the stock fan run when the car is running, but in "Park"? I'm getting the dreaded 1449 code-overheating. So, I disconnected the 12v, re-connected it, then started the car and let in run for 20-30 minutes to see if the battery fan was working. The fan never ran. From what I see from your post, the fan wouldn't run when the car is stopped, and I would need to drive the car to see if it comes on, right?
The fan, plus all the other offers we currently have for the Gen1 Insight are at the link below.Hello Revolt,
My 2005 Insight IMA Cooling fan failed. I guess I'm a prime candidate for one of your 170 cfm fan assemblies with the other items. Your price sounds good to me. I can ship all my old parts to you. Do you have a catalog for other items? I'm all ears. Thanks in advance, Jack
