Well, I was informed by another poster that I needed a signal generator to get the pwm cooling pump to run, so I bought one. The pump spools up, but only runs for 15 seconds. Switching off and on starts the cycle again. I've tried connecting the other 2 wires a variety of ways but no joy. Has anyone figured out these pumps?

Provide 70% duty 1kHz PWM 12V signal to control line and it will run indefinitely.

Turns out, the Leaf is PWM as well...Pulled from page 91 of the "EVC" section of the Leaf factory manual...I'm not sure I understand it:
