Thanks, Mike! I'll pull the remote up-down switch at the driver seat and test there, then pull fan trim. Thx 4 the advice.

Is this a modern replacement fan? If so then it's likely that the remote fan controls are not going to be working. Can you take a photo of the fan?

Also, if you need to remove it to fix the leaks just assume you will destroy it in the process.

Coaching football today. Will get a pic posted and will have a replacement on hand prior to pulling it off the roof. Should I go max air or another fantastic fan?

I made the choice to go with Fantastics last year on mine and I haven't found a reason to regret that decision.

Life got in the way. Just now getting around to working on this. This is definitely a retrofit. When I dropped the trim, the original wiring (for all the remote switches from the driver's seat) were cut off and only the black and white (pos and neg) were used from the loom. The ohm meter shows there is no power getting up to the fan unit. There is no fuse up there. Where do I go next? Power is not getting up to the fan. See pic.
Thx

Yep...retrofit. The drivers overhead switches for light & lid are cut off and unneeded. The fan switch should be on to power circuit and the controls on the fan. Fuse location best guess would be one of the load center boxes in the overhead bins.

Just ordered a maxx air 6100k. I don't need powered the powered lid and I like the cover. No need for a rain sensor and I can drive down the road in a rain storm with the fan running. Mow I need to figure out why the wires aren't bringing power up to the hole.

Josh,

When I was trying to figure out my fan power issue, I bought a cheap wire tone kit on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It was on sale for $12, but there are tons of identical ones from other vendors.

This allowed me to clip the tone generator to the wires coming to the fan in the roof, then sweep the receiving wand in the fuse panels to see where the wires were connected. I was surprised to see that they actually went to a relay which then led me to the right switch.

This is a super handy too for low voltage (12v) work. It will get cooked if you plug it into a live 120 volt line though.
