Toyota electric fans work with AC but not normally

    I have a Toyota 1996 Camry that I have rebuilt twice, the last within 2 weeks. Radiator split (3rd under Advance Parts warranty) and put in new 2 days ago. Tonight it overheated. Fan did not come on. When cooling or heating with AC, fans come on. With ignition Fan 1 relay is energized - not in make position for cooling. It didn't change at overtemp. AC compressor circuit is in parallel so it bypasses Fan 1 relay. (Believe me, I traced it all tonight to without the book.) Look for a bad coolant temperature (fan) SWITCH - not sensor. In some it's in the radiator. In v-6's it's elsewhere because there might be two to deal with.

Auto Camry 97 cooling fan is not switching on automatically, the temp gauge shows normal temp. Also both AC and cooling fan works when AC is switched on?


If the temp gauge shows normal, you would not expect the fan to be on much. It is controlled by the coolant temp sensor. If the fan will not come on when the car gets really hot, it is possible this sensor has failed.

It is normal for both AC and cooling fans to be on when you turn on AC to cool setting.

Toyota Corolla 1995. Quality of air conditioner reduced when stopped (traffic light) or moving at slow speed (condenced city traffic) No problem on the highway. Checked freon gas and fan. Understand that...


Normal, the ac heat exchanger condenser need air moving across the fins to remove the heat. While moving in town the condenser isn't remove the meat that is building up the it's aluminum fins. Even though the vehicle uses an electric fan. The fan is used to cool the engine temperature. If you Toyota is equip-ed with automatic transmission. The electric fan will need to pull enough air to cool the engine temperature, automatic transmission fluid, air conditioner condenser, and maybe power steering condenser to cool the power steering fluid. Later model of vehicles/trucks are using different refrigerants instead R134A in which you Toyota uses.

The simples way to explain is the ac remove heat from inside your Toyota and this heat is removed by the refrigerants inside your ac in the car. To cool the refrigerant this coolant is removed to the heat exchanger condenser located in front of the engine radiator. So, while moving at 60mph there is enough air flow through the radiator, ac head condenser, and other aluminum heat exchangers. GB...stewbison

I have a 1993 toyota corolla and the cooling fans come on when the ac is on but when i turn on the heat the fans stop working???????????????


that is normal the heater cools down the car,so less stress on motor compared to the a/c
as long as your car is not overheating then you may replace the thermostat
hope that helps-good luck!

Camry ac not cooling


you will need the AC serviced with new gas\dryer and leak test, assuming you can hear the AC compressor turning on and off.
Not sure where you are, but in australia you must be licenced to work on AC, with big fines for releasing AC gas to the atmosphere.

The warm air comes from the engine heat not the AC so the warm being normal just means the fan works

A/c cooling fan for my 88 mr2 non turbo wont turn


Sounds like the condensor fan relay is "sticking" - you are sure this is the condensor fan, and not the radiator cooling fan? As electric radiator cooling fans often run after the car is turned off - this is normal - If you are sure it is the condensor fan and it is on with the AC off - Id bet it was the relay responsible (versus the AC control unit) - Locate and remove the relay - if you have a comparable one you can substitue (Make 100% sure it uses the same plug and wiring schematic) and try that - if it now works properly you can try to locate one at your parts store....Hope that helps some....DD

A/C, blower motor quits intermittently.


There could be some electrical connections lose somewhere in the ac/ blower fan circuit, worth checking it.

When I turn on my 2004 toyota highlander air conditioner the fan on the motor sounds like it is running, where it has never done this before. what could be the cause?


When you turn on the AC pop the hood. If it has an electric cooling fan or an electric fan infront of the radiator and condensor then its normal for it to come on. Without air flowing through the core the AC will not blow cold air. You just may not have noticed it before, or the fan is wearing down and producing a bit more noise than before.
