P0482 2008 Ford Fusion Description

Monitors the Medium Fan Control (MFC) primary circuit output from the powertrain control module (PCM). The test fails, when the MFC output is commanded on (grounded) and excessive current draw is detected on the MFC circuit; or when the MFC circuit is commanded off and voltage is not detected on the MFC circuit (the PCM expects to detect IGN START/RUN voltage through the medium speed FC relay coil to the MFC circuit).
