I have a 2002 tc with a cummins engine. I can't seem to get the cooling fan to start. I had to put a new one on because of wiring pulled out of the old one. Is there a fuse or a relay somwhere I am missing to get power to the fan clutch?

can you hot wire it? Run battery power to the feed on the temp sender going to the fan clutch? See if the fan clutch kicks that way?

Check ALL fuses in the gray box and inside the bus. Go here: http://service.blue-bird.com/WiringSchematics/
Type in your VIN or Body number. Schematics are there. Good Luck!

To echo what Wolf0r said..check ALL fuses down there. I've had some that were so badly corroded that I have no clue how the bus was still operational.

Here are the "schematic", as simple as they are, for one of my 2000 TC's. Have you tried triggering it with InSite software?
