I've narrowed my fan problem to the switch on the dryer. When I connect a ground to the wire the fans come on with the AC.

Would I do any damage if I connect a ground to the wires or bridge the two together until I can fix it right. I know the fans would be on all the time with the AC, but this would be better than overheating in heavy traffic.

Any help is appreciated.

It could be that the switch has failed or that the system is a little under-charged. I have topped off a few this year and the fans light up.

It would be OK to connect a set of wires to the two that are there and close the contact with a Manual switch. DO NOT HIT GROUND WITH THIS.

(I did this to my 190-16v to help with the heat)

You can even use this with the a/c off.
