Sorry about the wait I was offline last night when you replied. Have you checked the fuses in the K40 relay? The relay is located in the passenger side module box under the hood back near the hood hinge.

Cooling fan in ecu compartment? ? Do you know who would or where i would get a new one along with procedures?
Expert:  Marty replied 11 months ago.
Yes the most likely cause of the fuse blowing is the module box blower motor. You can disconnect the blower motor for now and see if the fuse still blows. I've attached some instructions below for accessing the blower motor. The blower motor is not that critical to the operation of the car or for the cooling of the modules. In my opinion you can just disconnect the motor. Let me know if you need anything else. Please remember to rate my service in order for the website to pay me for helping you.Marty
