1984 944 Cooling fan / electrical problems


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1984; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5L; Total Mileage: 78,000;

I am having continuing electrical problems on my 1984 944. Cooling fans and temperature gauge dont work. Engine temperature sensor replaced. Cooling fan temperature sensor replaced. Fans work when given 12v current. They are now running off the fog light circuit. Cooling fan relay replaced. When the cooling fan temperature sensor is jumped, the fan plugs are only receiving 7 volts. MPH gauge only works when lights are on. It appeared to loose battery charge after 4-5 days of driving. Alternator tested weak, was replaced. Battery tests good. Starter seems to draw excessive current when cranking. With ignition off there is only a very small (milliamps) draw from the battery which tests to be the radio clock.
