Cooling fans do not come on

I have a 2000 venture that the cooling fans do not come on.

I have turned on the AC, and they still do not come on.

I have grounded pin (85 I think) on the primary relay and the right fan (from driver's seat) turns on high.

Where do I look next?

    The fans came on when I removed the connection to the temp sensor. Connection looks good, no corrosion. I will replace the temp sensor and let you know.....emissionwiz, You Da Man!

I am assuming you mean the temperature switch near the thermostat. I will try that and let you know.

Thanks,

Next thing to do is check the connector at the cooling fan switch on the engine, while you are there disconnect the sensor and start the engine, the fan should turn on, if it does the circuit is ok and the problem is with the fan switch or connector to it on the engine.

2005 Lincoln Aviator the cooling fan troubleshooting it


There is a cooling fan relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . There is a fuse F1.8 20amp in the same under hood fuse / relay box ! If you pull the relay out of it's socket an look on the bottom you'll see some numbers , 30,87,85,86 ! 85an 86 are the control side of the relay an 30 an 87 or the load -fan side ! If you take a test light or volt meter you can check for battery voltage at pin 30 ,you could take a jumper wire from pin 30 to 87 an the fan should run , if the fan motor is good an there is battery voltage at pin 30 ! Pins 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay ,pin 86 should have battery voltage an pin 85 is from the engine computer ,when the temperature get's to 195 - 213 degrees the engine computer will ground pin 85 through a transistor inside the computer energizing the relay turning on the cooling fan ! You can test right there at the relay ! VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Cooling fan motor does not engage while idling


If the fan runs when the ac is on, you can assume the fan motor and relay are ok. The temp sensor signals the computer when the engine reaches 220 degrees and the computer grounds the fan relay to power the fan.
You would need to check the operation of the temp sensor and verify the engine temp, usually with a scanner.

Cooling fans won't run on high.


The diagram is a little hard to follow, but it looks like on the high fan relay there are 5 circuits like on the hi-low relay.
Pin 86 is power for the magnet, 85 is the ground signal from the module. The module grounds the magnet to move the contacts.
Pin 30 goes to the fan and pin 87 goes to a 50amp fuse.
Pin 87A is a jumper between the two relays.
The fan motor gets power from three different sources and is grounded to the car. The other two wires are return signals to the module. Kind of like a three way light switch in a house.
On the fan control relay, pins 30 and 85 are hot, pin 87 goes to the fan motor, and pin 86 is grounded by the module.
I can send you the diagram in a separate message if you need to see it.

My 2000 chevrolet venture fan didn't work on 1, 2 it only works from 3-5, but when i get to mechanic he said the coolant temp unit need to be change. Can you pls tell me what might cause the problem?


I am assuming you are talking about the ac heater fan? You need a new fan speed resistor, I think your mechanic is confused and this you are talking about the engine cooling fan? Let me kno please rate

Both radiator cooling fans won't turn on vehicle overheats


The fans come on only when hot or the AC is on. There are many fuses that have to be good for it to work. The fan relay should have 2 pins hot with the key on, The other 2 should be ground. with the key off one should be hot and the other can then be ground the other pins that are ground one of them is the fan. the other becomes ground when the computer turns the fans on. If you don't have a pin thats hot at the relay all the time then theres a blown fuse or even the power wire from the battery at the battery

2000 Maxima Running Hot


Try replaceing the engine fan controller, make sure there are no bugs in the radiator, there is another coolant sensor cost about $22.00 for it the fan control costs $40.00 bucks since you say it's ok when you have AC on my guess is the fan comes on for the ac and keeps it cool. You also may need a new fan motor, non AC side. sometimes the shats slip and the fan slips on the shaft of the motor an causes it not to turn fast enought.

Fifteen minutes! you have bigger problems than only the fans the fans are controlled by a thermo switch that is heated by the coolant, If you have no coolant the sensor cannot activate But fifteen minutes seems like you may have a headgasket problem and steam cannot heat the coolant sensor.OperationNotesThe electric cooling fan operates when the engine cooling temperature exceeds a certain value. The cooling fan on this engine is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) . The PCM turns the cooling fan ON by grounding the coil of the cooling fan relays when certain conditions are met. When the A/C is requested, the cooling fan will also be turned ON.

Power for the cooling fan motors are supplied through Maxifuses(R). The cooling fan relays are energized when current flows from the fuses in the Underhood Accessory Wiring Junction Block, and through the relay coils to ground through the PCM. The Coolant Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit is grounded for low speed fans operation. During low speed fans operation, both fans run at a slow speed. The Coolant Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit is grounded for high speed operation. During high speed fans operation, both fans run at high speed.

IMPORTANT: When certain Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present, the PCM may command the cooling fans to run all the time. Perform the A Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check prior to diagnosing the engine cooling fans.

For more information regarding the Charging System, refer to Charging System Description , and Charging System Circuit Description in Starting and Charging.

If a problem that involves the low speed cooling fan relay control circuit exists, DTC P0480 Cooling Fan Relay 1 Control Circuit should set. If the problem affects the high speed cooling fan relay control circuit, DTC P0481 Cooling Fan Relay 2 Control Circuit should set. A problem with the ECT sensor should set DTC P0117 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Low Voltage, DTC P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit High Voltage, DTC P1114 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent Low Voltage, DTC P1115 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent High Voltage. Any of these DTCs will affect cooling fan operation and should be diagnosed before using the Electric Cooling Fan Diagnosis.

For more information regarding the Cooling System refer to Engine Cooling Fan Description - Electric, and Cooling System Description in Cooling System.


Here is the electrical schematic and how it all is suppose to work,
