Anyone around Danbury, CT with AE?

I'm looking for anyone who may be around me who has an AE scan tool. I suspect that my fan clutch isn't working properly and I would like to do some testing. Pulling a big hill with 11,000 my temps will get to 225 with out the sound of the fan, so it's time to test. Shouldn't take but a couple of minutes and I can come to you with beverage of your choice

I just read a post my M-Chan on how to test.

Wish I were going out that way, I'd certainly stop in.

I can tell you that my fan does not fully engage until the water temp is at 235* prior to that it runs 200-800 rpms less that then engine rpm.

Maybe it's a 2003 thing then? I get a little nervous when the temps go that high, I like them to be under 220. If the fan is operating normally then I guess I'm good, but still would like to test it.

Me too! I will be setting mine a lot lower when I get a custom tune for it. My guess is that the test will show it is working correctly. I had the same concern with my fan till my last trip pulling. I watched it like a hawk till I knew it was working.
