ok here is the deal i have a b16 in my 97 civic it is finally getting tuned this week!! but i was driving it and i got stuck in some traffic and the temp started to go up! i pulled over and i noticed that my fan doesn't turn on i checked my fan relay but it seems find i switched it with another one from a 96 civic and nothing it is hooked up so i don't know what to do. can i hook it up to a fuse so it turns on when the car turns on? is that a good idea?
