Default Engine stalls when fans come on.

I have a 1995 Mazda 323 with a B6 engine. I have performed the following repairs: Replaced radiator, replaced water pump, repair heater supply tube. I do realize that the problem is unrelated to the repairs, (probably coincidence?) but now the engine stalls when the rad fans come on---even on high revs. Help!

There must be a short in the system. Maybe the fan motor is shorted out. Check for resistance. The Haynes manual should help you sorting this out.

Thank you very much Tanprotege for your reply. I ran through the old posts and did some checks as per the suggestions. I did find the problem. There was a cracked fitting on the air breather hose to the rocker cover, downstream of the maf sensor. Repaired the hose and it seemed to have cured the problem. Thanks again for your reply.
