There are relays not just fuses for the cooling fan. look under the hood there should be a black junction box open it and you will see several little black cubes those are relays. if you have the owners manual they will show what each one is for. start the vehicle and let it get to operating temp 180-190 degrees your fans normally kick on at this point what i normally do is take the relay for the a/c clutch and swap it for the radiator cooling fan if the fans kick on you know it was the relay. if they don't kick on then you know that the temp sensor on the radiator is bad., but before you go replacing anything make sure that there are no loose or missing wires. that all mplug connections are tight and not coroded and that with the engine off that the fan blades spin freely. once checking everything and you still have an issue then the fans are bad and need to replace it.. please rate this thanks

SOURCE: cooling fans not coming on at all fuse is good.

After the fuse would come the relays, then coolant temp sensors. You might also try to get a 12 volt power reading at the connector to the fans to see if they are getting a power feed as well.

SOURCE: where is the fuse or relay for the cooling fan in

You have to refer to your owners manual or an after market service manual for fuse locations but that is not the issue. There is a sending unit screwed into the block with a temp sensor that closes the circuit on the ground side when the cooling system reaches a specified temperature. There is a fuse between the hot side and the fan for over current protection (see manual). A bad sending unit is most likely the culprit. Measure the resistance or continuity when the engine is hot from the sending unit body which is grounded to the block, and the output terminal or black wire running to the fan motor. It should be closed or read less than 0.5 Ohms. If it is open or very high resistance replace it. Good luck to you. I hope thishelps

SOURCE: cooling fan

Whoever told you the temperature gauge on cavalier is normal 3/4th is the lie. It is however in operating temperature range but on the hot side. Have you flushed your coolant and replaced thermostate, and gotten air vapor locks out.

Why the cooling fan fuse has no power/fuse is good?


The cooling fan is controlled by the PCM via a couple of relays. Try swapping the cooling fan relays and see if the fan starts to work. If that doesn't work than you will likely need a scan tool to determine if there is a fan request from the PCM.

Cooling fan not working/ 1999 Kia Sephia...I checked the fan...needs to be replaced but also no power from the plug the fan is connected to


The fan is powered by multiple control points. The first thing to check is fuse for cooling fans. If fuse is good then check the fan relay(s). After making sure those 2 items are good then check temperature sensor on the engine. Those are the main items that control cooling fans. Some vehicles are also controlled through the ECM.

RADIATOR fans 2001 dodge carvan won't work


There is a fuse to check,and a cooling fan relay,near,under the fans on drivers side,and the coolant sensor turns the fans on also,so it could be bad,or a cooling problem,like the thermostat closed up,or air in the system.Also the cooling fans them selfs could be bad.See if they come on when the ac is turned on,if they do,then the fuse is good,and the relay,and the fans are good,check everything else.

2003 malibu cooling fans don't work. I have replace the relay and the temp sensor and still nothing. When ever I disconnect the temp sensor the fans come on and work normally, but later in the day I see...


okay pull the temp sensor connector ( disconnect it) and turn car on if the fans run then its the temp sensor.... part # wt3000.
Theres also 3 relays that turn the fans on in the fuse box cooling mode fan relay @15 which is part number 7234. and cooling one # 1 which is 3604, and cooling fan #2 which is 7236.
I have the same car...give me a fan clutch cooling system anyway of the week. simple and efective no problems.
