GeorgeH, I too had that problem. One fan was overloading fuse. Took the fan apart and lubricated it and still no good results. Finally replaced the drivers side fan and everything is fine now.

three amp fuse sounds like it is very small for the application. see if you can find a tag on the fan that tells the power draw. I would think a 15 amp fuse would be about right. I believe allegro used a 20 amp fuse for their fans. a 3 amp is so small, it could have seperated and you can't see it. I would check with a dealer or another owner to see what fuse is correct.
