    did you properly bleed the air out? have you replaced the thermostat?

    the one fan is more than enough, that's not your issue.

    not likely, not unless it somehow became clogged. which seems unlikely

    honda's are notorious for being overcooled and the ef radiator is more than capable of keeping a b18 at the proper temp.

    cable might have popped out of the back of the cluster or the transmission. if not that then the cable might have broken internally

    a toggle switch for a fan that should come on automatically is ghetto. don't be lazy and fix the problem instead of bypassing it
