Having the same problem with my 2013 1.4. It is the 3rd radiator fan I bought, the resistors in the first two were blown. Something causes high current, I went to a specialist who checked the amperage; waiting for another fan now to hook it up, we gonna check everything step by step. I think it's just impossible that 2 resistors got blown randomly because the fan itself was defective.

thanks for your reply. Aftermarket fans. I thought the same, I kept the radiator fan out of the car (extended wires) - same thing, the resistor got blown is exactly same way..

Did you figure out what was causing the resistors to blow. I’m like you on my 3rd fan and it has blown the resistor again. They are also aftermarket fans.
hey there, nope, unfortunately I never did. I didn't even hook up the new rad as in the meantime I got a really nice offer and I.. sold my chevy. It must be some factory issue with these cars, tbh I had really enough of all of it so I decided to sell. My advice: go to an experienced electrician and check the current along with all the relays to find out if they work properly.

Man I was really hoping you fixed it. I’ve had my buddy put it in his diagnostic computer and tested everything relays included. He’s got 15 years experience and all he could tell me was it is a bad resistor. It has all the correct voltage going to the resistor and telays are functioning correctly. I guess I’ll try the dealer fan if I can get autozone to give me my money back instead of an exchange.
yeah I know what you feel bro, sorry I can't help.. all you can do is to connect another fan and observe, use extended wires so you and your buddy can monitor what actually happens to he resistor. good luck!
