    I think tHe fan sesor is in the thermostat housing, the relay for the fan is marked "ENGINE MAIN" IN THE RELAY BOX

    What engine do you have

    Does the engine overheat? the cooling fan does not come on until around 230 degrees F, so it may appear the engine is near overheating area of guage, if it does overheat then check the relay for the engine cooling fan, it is not the same one as the AC fan, another test is to disconnect the fan sensor on the engine, that will cause the fan to run in failure mode, that tells you the electrical parts are working, it is a quick test to check everything that turns the fan on.

'03 galant es 2.4L Cooling fan won't run, unless a/c is on. no codes. heats at idle, traffic, uphill. use a/c to slow heating. no water lost, air, or hi pressure. 15+v @ A30 pin 1. What next?


The radiator fan has a temp sensor to activate it. If the sensor has failed the fan will not come on when the coolant reaches a set temperature. That is the likely cause of the problem. You should not be driving your car around in this condition as if you allow the engine to overheat you will do expensive damage to it - many times the cost of getting the most expensive mechanic in town to fix the problem you have now.
Get the problem attended to immediately as you should also for every engine cooling issue.

Both aux fans remain on from cold startup. is it more likely the radiator temp switch than the fan relay?


fan relay more than likely, but I think think it would stay on all the time even with key off, could be wrong tho. sounds to me like you have your air condition on, or heater set to defrost as defrost basically runs the air conditioning compressor and cooling fans when defrost is on.

Why car isn't blowing cool air except while driving fast?


Are you saying the air coming out of the vents is not cold unless you are moving ? Or there is no air unless you are moving ?
And are you sure the radiator fan is running with the ac on ? Can you feel air being pulled thru the condenser ? What are the gauge readings with the ac on and the engine at idle ?

1999 VW passat air conditioning gets cool but not cold. It gets colder after driving then put in park than it does while driving. The condensor and fan both come on but it doesn't blow cold air. H


take to a shop and have it done if you dont have proper equipment to do it is easy to over or under charge if was shop not friend then take back . when too much is put in at higher speed it will not cool and the specs are in metric and only holds 1.15 lbs of 134-a no more

Engine Cooling problem 2000 Jeep Cherokee 4 cyl


Although the 4 cylinder is too underpowered to have air conditioning in my opinion, it still shouldn't overheat within 10 minutes unless something is wrong. If your Jeep doesn' not overheat when you are driving WITHOUT AC on then your compressor might have a problem and causing the engine to work too hard to turn it.

But if it overheats without the AC on, then the first thing you need to do is check the cooling fan and see if it operates! There has been a lot of problems with the cooling fan relay on this model. If that isn't it, then move to changing the thermostat and checking the water pump.

REMOVING WATERPUMP


NOTE: This procedure may be easier if the radiator and shroud is removed. If the radiator is not removed, place cardboard in front so not to damage the radiator core
  1. Open the hood and disconnect the battery. Remove the lower engine cover.
  2. Drain the cooling system. CAUTION
    When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  3. On cars without air conditioning, remove the fan.
  4. On cars with air conditioning, remove the air pump and generator mounting bolts, then remove the fan and air pump drive belt (pivot the generator and air pump in toward the engine). Remove the fan and pulley with set plate. Remove the hoses to the pump.
  5. Remove the 6 bolts attaching the water pump and remove the water pump assembly. Clean all gasket surfaces carefully. To install:
  6. Install the 6 bolts attaching the water pump with a new gasket.
  7. On cars with air conditioning, install the air pump and generator mounting bolts, then install the fan and air pump drive belt (pivot the generator and air pump in toward the engine). Install the fan and pulley with set plate. Install the hoses to the pump.
  8. On cars without air conditioning, install the fan.
  9. Refill the cooling system.
  10. Connect the battery, start the engine and check for leaks.

Air Con cuts in and out and so does cooling fan


I have a 2008.5 Mazda 3 GS Sport and when you turn the air flow selector to windows or windows/floor, the air condition will turn on automatically. (Can't turn it off.)

ENGINE COOLANT FAN NOT CUTTING IN


On my 2001 Focus Zetec 2.0L, the radiator fan only worked with the air conditioning turned on (as in no low speed - engine would overheat while idling or in traffic, but was fine as long as the A/C was on). The fix was to replace the radiator fan resistor assembly located in the fan shroud between the fans.

1987 Toyota Celica overheats when air conditioning is turned on


Hi

The first thing to check is that the engine cooling fan comes on when you turn on the air conditioning, then you should check the condition of the radiator fins. If they are clogged with debris (dead insects, leaves, etc...) then you will need to get a pressure washer onto it through the front grill and try to blast it clear.

When you switch on the aircon, it puts extra stress on the engine, which causes the fuel economy and engine power to drop, and as a result the engine will naturally run hotter, so it needs a bit of help to cool down in the form of the engine cooling fan.

Regards
