Sorry to hear you haven't got everything wrestled to the ground yet, but at least you have a valuable added symptom to combine in a diagnostic chart. As in, get it away from those mechanics! Fumbling around, can't or won't read, and don't want to learn. If they're incapable or unwilling to read and insist on higher profit parts slinging, then do something different if desiring different results. Ipso facto with the son needing/wanting/lusting for a car then best turn that into motivation for him to take that FSM (which you're gonna get him for graduation present) and tell him to dig in. Kids pick $ihY up quick when there's something in it for them, and you can take what you know and combine it with his energy, time and hands to make positive progress - for the cost of parts only. Do what I do with my son and mention that between the two of us we make one good man lol. Just show him a real desktop and show him how to search.
I recall you've redone susp., brakes and fuel stuff (body stuff too?. JIMHO considering the wrenchin' you done on this rig in the past couple years there ain't nuthin' I've read that you two can't blow through in a few weeks if it's just electrics remaining. JIMHO
EDIT: Fans on all the time is ECT, its wires or connector, maybe a short maybe not, something about the A/C could be involved, Smart guys on here will know better, and a FSM likely has a diag. tree on it. Best luck.
