Not sure about the wiring, but did you switch out water pumps. With a serpentine system you have to run a reverse flowing water pump. Just want to make sure before you have a heating problem.

I believe the 'F' and 'L' leads on Doc's diagram are reversed. The 'L' lead should be used with a lamp or a resistor in place of the lamp, and the 'F" should be a system when there is no charge lamp in the system. This is how an automotive electrics tech explained it to me and how I have it hooked up on my rod - has been running quite a while now with no problems.
