Can you be a little more specific? Where in FL are you located?

Where is the liquid coming from exactly?

And what exactly do you do to the harness that allows the fan to kick on?

I am in Coral Springs which is by Ft Lauderdale. If I hold the wiring harness where it plugs into fan and push downward the fan spins. Not sure if shorting out but checkked all wires and nothing loose. The liquid shooting out seemed like it was coming from water pump, but appeared to be from somewhere right behind compressor & felt oily but clear! Thanks for responding

As far as the fan, sounds like a problem with the connector/plug. I'd disconnect it, inspect for loose/broken tabs in the connector, and put dialectic grease all over it the reconnect it. If holding/wiggling the connector makes it go on/off then it must be something with the connector/plug.

I don't know about the leak...
