Arthur, that is what I thought, based on my experience with the 190E 2.3-16 and reading the wiring diagrams. But in this case when you disconnect the switch, the resistance goes to infinity, and the fans turn on. I checked the resistance on the "blue switch" with the engine cold, and it is a "dead short" meaning zero resistance. I will check it out today and when it is hot I will make another resistance measurement and let you know what the value is when the fans come on. Jim
