The temp gauge started to rise today in heavy traffic. When I got home I checked the auxiliary fan and I couldn't move it. Took it out and connected to 12 volts and nothing. My thinking is that it might have given out some time ago. Anyway I am replacing the fan. What should I replace? Is there a temp switch that engages the fan? If so where is it located?

I know the aux fan should run continuously when the A/C is on. So you could turn on your A/C and check the connector the fan plugs into and see if you are getting voltage, if so, more than likely it was just your fan. I also found on the land rovers, almost everything is run by a control module, not just hooked up to a sensor. I think the temp sensor hooks up to the ECU and it sends power to the fan when called upon.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!! Thanks for the advice!! Bought an auxiliary fan off of Amazon (not a LR Disco direct replacement). I couldn't see spending $450.00+ for a direct replacement. Anyway replaced the fuse and installed the fan. Today was 101° and it worked flawless.
