Hello, sounds to me like the jump start may have blown a fuse, did you get the check engine light checked? there will be a code that we will need to know before coming to a solution. Lou

i have test the fan, and it is working fine, the ecm is the main computer right? but there is something else i could do in order to solve it before i get to the computer tests i can do, for example. i have a multi meter at home....thanks
