The fan should be controlled by engine temperature, and go on when it reaches a certain point. If it's on all the time (even when engine is cold) the 'radiator fan switch' may be stuck in the closed position, which completes an electric circuit and turns on the fan on. Check the switch. countrycurt0

If you have your a/c or defrost on the fan will come on as the a/c cuts it on to cool condensor.
if they are not on then you have a relay sticking or someone has rewired the fan

On my 2006 ac works good when engine is cool, in stop & go traffic it blows hot air & head pressure gets high in ac, car temp is ok what's wrong


How do you know head pressure is high? Do you have an auxiliary electric cooling fan that is not coming on in this situation? It should be in front of the AC condensing coil. There may be a switch tied to the system that is bad. This switch is sometimes activated by the pressure in the high-pressure line to the condenser coil. If there is not enough freon (134a) the pressure will not be high enough to activate the cooling fan switch. I recently added one can to my system and it made the fan run whereas it did not before adding the freon.

Gear noise left front 2008 prius sound like a tire rubbing against a plastic fender but it is not and the faster you go the louder it gets . Even worse when you steer to the right. And quite to the left.


It's most likely a bad left front wheel bearing or possible tire noise, switch the left front tire with the rear tire and see if the noise changes. If not have the wheel bearing checked, it may need to be replaced.

Water is over heating when air conditioner is running. Temp is fine when air conditioner is off. Changed radiator fluid and thermostat. Fan is running and water pump seems to be ok.


My suspicion is that the fans may be coming on but they are not picking up speed when you turn on the A/C. Your car would have some of relay to control the speed of the fan whenever the A/C was turned on. This relay system would also increase the speed at which the fans run when the engine heat turns them on too.

Try starting the car cold and turning on the A/C right. Even though the engine is cold the rad fan should start up when you switch on the A/C. Once the engine gets hot the fan speed should increase accordingly when you switch on the A/C.

I'm not familiar with how Chrysler makes this work so I'm unsure what to repair but this is most likely your problem. Hope this helps.

The radiator cooling fan is always on ?


Is your AC on (AC compressor activated)? Try switching that off and see if it still runs.

Location of the Auxiliary fan switch


The auxillary fan is used for AC cooling purposes, and your vehicle under normal circumstances should not overheat regardless of the status of the auxillary fan.

That being said, the auxillary fan is controlled by the PCM based on AC switch position via a fan control relay in your fuse box under the hood. There is no fan switch for it, as it is turned on based on PCM observance of AC control switch position.



Some things to look at regarding your overheat condition:

When the vehicle begins overheating, what are the conditions of the radiator hoses? Are both firm, or only one and the other soft? Are both hot, or is one hot and the other only warm?

Both a failed waterpump and a failed shut thermostat will show a hot hose on one side and only a warm hose on the other side of the radiator.

A failed (stuck shut) thermostat will also result in one very firm hose (highly pressurized and nowhere to go with the thermostat shut) and one relatively soft hose.

You can take the radiator cap off (BEFORE it pressurizes) and watch the water level as the car runs. If the thermostat is opening and waterpump is pumping, you will see fluid flow once it gets to operating temperature.

Watch your engine fan and see if it is engaged or just spinning freely. When warm and the engine shut off, the fan clutch should be engaged making the fan more resistant to turn. If it spins freely, the clutch is failing.

Check the area around the radiator and between it and the condenser for obstructions to airflow.

Obviously check the condition of the coolant for heavy scale/sludge. The 3.0/3.5 engines are notorious for turning coolant into thick rusty puddy.

Hope this helps!

1995 toyota 4 runner starting problem once in awhile


Is the starter turning over the engine when it wont start or is nothing happening at all?
I might have your solution if I have more details.
If the engine is turning over but not starting then switch on the ignition and push it to start.If it starts you probably need a new ignition switch.

Please get back to me .Thanks

Cooling fan coming on and off


That's what the auxiliary cooling fan does. Once the engine reaches a temperature thats above the normal opearating temp it will kick on. Hope it helps.

Radiator cooling fan


You may need to replace the thermostat. The thermostat is what controls the fan coming on. If the car is having an overheating problem the check engine light will be on since it is not operating in the allowed tollerances.
