Question about 1993 Nissan Maxima

Rad fan control fuses blows

The fuse blows on a very random interval. It can last weeks then let it cool down and you are good for another few weeks. This fuse controls the ABS brakes and the electronic air conditioner. It seems to fail after hours of driving and only on warmer days

Hi its most likley to be the radiator fan drawing more currant than normall that is not that simple to find as its proberly the windings in the fan its a process of elimanation you can fit an inline fuse in the main feed wire on the fan and see if it blows this first and seen as there is more than one appiance running on this fuse you could dissconnect the air conditions terminals so there is no currant passing through the fuse you can do the same with the abs as the cars computer will reset the system to normall braking system which is perfectly safe but i would expect the abs light to come on if theres a problem with the abs also check the grounding to these applances as bad grounds will cause a high resistance hence blow your fuse yates210456

2003 kia rio burns out rad fan fuse when turned on

Try unplugging the air conditioner compressor under the hood. There should be a plug near to its pulley. With the compressor unplugged, try turning the fan switch to AC again & see if it still blows the fuse. If it does, there's a problem somewhere in the wiring between the switch and the compressor. If not, the problem is in the compressor's pulley clutch.

I have a 2007 Kia Sedona and the fuse keeps blowing that controls the blower fan speeds and interior lights. After the fuse blows the blower fan for heat and cool always stays on high speed. If you try...

Yeah... Kilwatt76,

I was thinking there was little chance for a crossover
b"twix these KIA spheres of power influence... but staring
at the drawings I keep seeing "clock-spring"...

but since "clock-spring" usually means steering wheel
remote controls you might want to FORGET about blower
RESISTORS and focus on the blower speed controls.. and "REMOTE" controls there-from...

Any chance your HVAC has provisions for the STEERING WHEEL...?

You asked for "ANY" thoughts...
That's "justa" thought.,2007,sedona,3.8l+v6,1440120,heat+&+air+conditioning,blower+motor+control+module+/+resistor,6557

The other way to find a CROSSOVER would be to pull the 7.5 Amp fuse... Put on a TONE-TRACER and start OPENNING
the HVAV circuits until you find the lighting tone...

NOTE: Toners do not work on closed systems
(pulling the LIGHT fuse... with the "interior" lites off
should be the END of your tone search...

If the tone goes further... WIRES are crossed
(find by pulling fuses & connectors OPEN.

The car over heats while idling then cools as you drive

its the radiator fan running? check the fuses.
if the radiator fan does not run when the car achieves certain temperature, then your temperature sensor maybe defective.
check if you have enough coolant.

Unhooked battery now rad cooling fan wont come on

Did you unplug the cooling fans? Blow a fuse?

The Cooling fan on a vw vr6 1997 runs constantly runs more or less from start up any ideas thankyou.

Things that keep the fans on

First, check fuses. On top of the battery there is a fuse block. The 1st green fuse on the left is for fan operation. Take it out, check it for heat damage. A lot of times the fuse won't blow, but there will be heat damage to the fuse and holder. If there's damage, you have had an high current draw and the relay might be stuck or the fan(s) are binding.
While we are there, with the fuse out spin the fans by hand and see if they do anything but spin free. If binding, replace the fan. A high draw from a binding fan will burn out new components in the same way.
With the fuse back in, check the fuse panel on the drivers' side of the dash. One at a time pull fuse #5, #16 and #25 and check them. If one of them blows, the fans can run unexpectedly.
Still running?

A/C- If your a/c button is on, this would keep the fans on always. Turn off the climate control system, make sure the A/C switch is off too.
Still running? Go under the hood and unplug the A/C pressure switch. It's on an A/C line just before it enters the cabin. If you unplug it and the fans stop this is your issue.
Still running?

Next would to unplug the rad. thermo. switch. It's on the drivers side of the radiator about a foot down from the upper rad hose. It screws into the radiator and has a triangular connecter. Unplug it. If the fans go off, this is your issue.
Still running?

After you are SURE everything else checks out, last cause would be to replace the fan control module. It's the block right next to the thermo switch you just fooled with, the connecter is facing up.

a bad coolant temp sensor might do this too

Fuse location/ Cooling fan relay location

The relay for the cooling fan is located on the left side (north america drivers side) of the rad about half way down or near the top (may vary) there may be two relays or one, replace them both. As for the fuse location it should be under your dash (fuse panel) looks like a big silver fuse similar to a zippo lighter, it will be marked in fine print "engine fan".
