Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

The radiator fan is not working, does it have a separate computer module?

My car is a 1995 1.9 liter Ford Escort, standard 5 speed. It sat in about 18" of water when Hurricane Ike hit us and I have had quite a bit of work already done, including a rebuilt computer. Everything works now except the radiator fan and I was told by one mechanic that the fan has a separate computer module but my used parts dealer says not. What do I do now?

The next step is to determine if the thermal water switch usualy located at bottom of radiator is working.There are two wires one is ignition power and the other goes to the fan.the thermal water switch acts like an opening and closing door When it gets hot it opens the door a lets the fan have power.If you have a testlight/probe you can check if there is power there when you turn on the key if there is you join the two wires together and the fan will go if it doesnt then replace fan if it does work replace thermal water switch.Good luckOh yeah!dont need a computer to tell a fan to switch on

This car has a relay module that contains a few relays internally and cant be serviced the relay box must be replaced, the relay box module that contains the fan and ac compressor and fuelpump relays is located under the air filter box, remove the filter box and you will see the relay module bolted there. hope this helps.

My car runs for three seconds then dies

Its' a module problem. The computer also should be diagnosing a trouble code. The main computer turns over control to the module within 5 seconds of a startup. Check your connectors for corrosion.

Autozone or Oreillys may be able to test the module to verify this for you. Another system that works like yours is the Cold Start circuit. The TPS takes over after the Cold Start circuit stops. The TPS is the throttle control or throttle position sensor. The TPS regulates both fuel and spark. Good Luck on your repair.

Replaced cooling fan ,cooling fan relay, and 40 amp fuse. Fan still won't come on. Any suggestions? 1995 Ford Escort w/ 1.9 liter engine.

Did you check the parts before replacement? Check if there is power supply to the fan when engine is hot and the fan should start. Also check the temperature sensor or the automatic fan switch located below the radiator, it may be faulty.
