Flat battery every morning even though I make sure all accessories are off, heater fan not turning off all the time when ignition off


With hot battery, turn all off, wait 10 minutes and then feel of all relays to see if one is warm or hot. Stuck relay can cause this.

Changing aNTIFREEZE IN TUNDRA


Remove radiator cap.Remove radiator bung from bottom of radiator and drain into container.Replace bung.Replace new 50/50 water/antifreeze mix.Turn interior heater up to max with fan on lowest setting.Run vehicle until hot, topping up radiator as required.Replace radiator cap when bubbling ceases. Road test vehicle, return and recheck level after cooling down period.Recheck level over the next few days and check for any new signs of leakage in system.(Fresh introduction of antifreeze can reduce the tension of the water molecules and can produce new leaks)

Before! My car ran hot when I turned on a/c. At one time I was running 50/50 antifreeze. I changed the thermostat, and mechanic friend said take radiator top off run car for 15min to get water out of...


Never ever put undiluted coolant/antifreeze in your vehicle. It is to thick and will cause even more overheating and other problems as well. One fan should run almost the instant you turn the A/C on.
The other fan is controled by coolant temperature. You should check the fan relays, fuse's and coolant temperature sensors for proper operation. Also clean the condensor and radiator fins with a good stream of water from a garden hose, not high pressure water at a car wash. The water pump may be worn out as well.

Why there are 02 fans near radiator? What are the purposes? One is working and one is not.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
You have 2 fans because one is the temperature controlled radiator fan that only runs when the engine water temp is above 160 deg. F. The water termperature controlled fan can run even with the ignition key OFF should the Engine water temp be too hot.
The 2nd fan is for your Air-Conditioner that should run when the cabin temp is set low enough for the Air-Conditioner compressor to run. This fan should run anytime the Air-Conditoner is switched on.
If your experiencing engine over heat problems when driving slow or sitting idle most likely the fan switch that is switched on by water temperature has failed. The fan switch controls a fan relay and if the relay fails the fan will not run. In this particular model there is a cooling fan module that controls the fan.

How do I change a thermostat in a 2001 New Beatle VW


First you should drain the antifreez by opening the drain plug located by the lower radiator hose. Then take the upper radiator hose off. Then take the 2 bolts out that hold the housing on. Remove the housng and there is your thermastat. Accordind to VW they want you to put antifreeze on the o-ring I use RTV a little extra help sealing just don't put a lot on. The book says to put thermastat in housing and turn 1/4 turn to right. I'm not sure why but thats what it says. TIP If you close the drain plug now and put as much antifreeze in as you can makes it easyer to get air pockets out later. Mount your therrmostast housing back to block and tighten bolts. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can them put upper radiator hose back on. Again put as much antifreeze in that you can. Now come the hard part sometimes getting all the air out of the cooling system. Put the radiator cap on but loose run the engine till the cooling fan kicks on but keep checking the coolant level. WARNING ANTIFREEZE WILL GET ABOVE 200 DEGREES
both upper and lower radiator hoses should be hot and radiator full. If both hoses aren't hot you have an air pocket that you have to get out. To do this run the engine a couple minutes after the fan kicks on then turn engine off for 5 or 10 minutes and start over keep doing this till both hoses get hot and the air the fan is blowing is hot. Once this is doe yout ready to go. I hose off any antifreeze that got one car so if you see antifreeze under car you know something is leaking and not what was spilled. 254a047.pnga06a9b1.png

Radiator fan does not turn to


The thermo switch is fitted into the radiator low down on the left side (when sitting in drivers seat). It should have 2 thick wires going to it. If these are pulled off and joined together the fan should run continuously, even with the ignition switched off. It is reasonably easy to change if you have the correct size ring spanner. Dont forget to refill the radiator with antifreez when you have finnished. the part is readily available from most after market parts suppliers

2004 Mitsubishi Outlander AWD, over heats when idle/stopped, cools down when driving. Added antifreeze 2 weeks ago, problem fixed until yesterday when started heating up again during idle, antifreeze...


Sounds like the electric fan is not coming on. Could be the switch screwed into the radiator, a malfunctioning fan relay, a blown fan fuse or the fan motor has gone bad.

2005 hyundai sonata is running hot while sitting at stop lights


Check your fuse and relay to the radiator fan, There going to be high amp fuse so most likely will be in the fuse box by the battery. If the fuse and relay is good, check the wire harness connection at the fans. The other thing to is to run the engine and turn on your A/C, the A/C should over ride the switch and turn on the fans. If the fans do turn on, inspect the radiator fluid, make sure it's at it's level and if it's never been serviced. It may be time, Orange antifreeze has a life of 150,000 miles or 5 years and the green antifreeze has a life of 30,000 miles and 1 year. The thermostat may also gone bad but i don't think at this case since your car only heats up while your stopped. If everything is working (fan) just replace the antifreeze 50/50 mix (Antifreeze/water), Water has great heat transfer but boils so antifreeze is added, and 100% antifreeze does not have great heat transfer and will gel when heated so the two have to be mixed 50/50 and if your not sure how to mix the two. You can buy them 50/50 mix and the capacity to your car total fill is 7.3 liter 4 cylinder/ 8.6 liter 6 cylinder.

My blower fan will run with the key out, but will turn of with the fan switch. I changed the A/C relay under the dash and it seem to fix the problem.
