1995 mazda mx3 radiator fan failure.

I replaced the relay, fan swich sensor and I have the same problem. I don't think that is the thermostat, because i have good heat. I conect the fan direct when I turn on my car at this time, but I know that for long time can put my system crazy. so can you please let me know what is the problem to replace? thanks

SOURCE: cooling fans dont engage! 1998 oldsmobile silhouette!

Your Problem Can VERY WELL BE with the Temp Sensor, As It Is the First in This Electrucal Circut . it Waits for 210-230 Degree Engine temp and Gives that Sygnal to the ECM then ECM Grounds out the Cooling FAN RELAY To Turn ON the FANS and the Temp Sensor is Usualy THE #1 Culpret Closley in front of the RELAY.
There are 2 Sensors On this Vehicle The One You Replaced and One Located At Trans Side of
Engine Closer to Front of Vehicle At the Head ,Thereis a 2 wire Plug On it and This Sensor Goes to the ECT witch CONTROLS COOLING FAN RELAY. Hope this Helps and if you Need A Diagram For this It Must be Emailed as FixYa Does NOT Support Large Picture Files. My Email Add. Is MY

I have a 1995 mazda mpv with 76,000 miles. I just replaced radiator and thermastat but still gets hot after driving up hill. What's wrong with it?

IF you have a motor driven fan it will be connected by a viscous fan hub . replace the viscous fan hub as it is not working and pulling air through the radiator when you need it most. I imagine that the temperature will be higher than normal while sitting at lights . If it is an electronic fan the run fault codes and look for fan relays --fuses-- and temperature coolant sensor, problems.

Radiator fan

Most relays are identical, try swapping it with another one to see if the problem remains. If your coolant gauge is working fine, I would not suspect the sensor. Make sure to check fuses too.

I just put a new radiator in my 1995 Chrysler Lebaron and my fan wouldn't kick on, I've asked some people and they have all said I need to replace my thermostat? I've also checked the fuse

Did you TRANSFER the Temperature Sensor over to the new Radiator and did you Plug it in?

There is a RELAY that you may need to test or you may have an electrical problem going to the FANS? Remember you had to remove the Fans to install the Radiator but you have to Plug them in when you get done..

Hopefully you did not pinch a wire along the way...

Radiator fan runs constantly... yet temp. is normal

replace the fan relay because if the points are stuck , the fan will be getting power all the time
easy check when the fan is running , pull the relay and the fan will stop
put it back in and if the fan starts up again , it is the relay

Our 1999 dodge grand caravan radiator fans don't come on and our van overheats. we have to hot wire the fans directly to the battery. We also need to know where the relay is

it may be the temperature sensor that activates the fans is faulty & needs to be replaced or it could be a loose wire or connection check the wiring & connectors......hope this helps......cheers.

Radiater cooling fan not working

Could be the temp sensor on the radiator or the fan relay. I wouldn't drive it to avoid overheating & damaging the engine.

The cooling fan is not working and it is running hot but not actually overheating. can a bad thermostat cause this problem? i replace the fuse but this did not fix the problem

Yes it can. To verify, unplug the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. If your fan turns on then you have to replace the temp sensor. Otherwise swap the relay of the AC fan with the radiator fan. If it turns on, have the relay replaced, if not have the fan replaced.
