Alright, I'm looking at buying a 2000 v8 that has been converted to an electric fan. The owner claims both the heat and a/c worked before the conversion and now both don't because, as he says, the computer won't let them work because the hydraulic pump is gone. This seems seriously suspect to me as I don't see how the two are connected, at least the heater. Based on what I've read many members here have converted to electric fans and had no issues with a/c or heat related to the conversion. I want to call B.S. on this guy but I want to be sure first. Thanks. P.s. My 5 speed LS is running great (had to replace the fuel pump in January but otherwise trouble free for almost 5 years) and I just replaced the solenoid pack in my brothers 2003 v8 transmission so it's running great now too.
