Sounds to me its a faulty coolant temperature sensor.If you replace the sensor make sure to reset the computer either with a code reader or a scan tool or buy disconnecting the ground cable on the battery for 30 seconds.

The fan on my jeep won't go off when i turn off my ignition and is draining my battery. What should I do?


I ASSUME YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE RADIATOR FAN. THERE IS A TEMP SENDING UNIT THAT TELLS THE FAN WHEN TO OPERATE. THE SENSOR IS PROBERLY BAD. THERE ARE 2 SENSORS, 1 FOR THE LIGHT/GAUGE AND 1 FOR THE ECM. DISCONECT THE SENSOR IF FAN GOES OFF REPLACE IT, IF IT STAYS ON CHECK THE FAN RELAY. UNPLUG IT ,IF FAN GOES OFF NOW THEN RELAY HAS FAILED

I Have a 2002 lincoln ls v6 that is overheating i've change valve cover gaskets,water pump,ignition coils,ts tat ,i let it run for about30 min with the heater on it took awhile for the heater to get warm...


you have wasted money on fixing what has not consequence on the oproblem
overheating is from 4 things
1--- no/insufficient water in the cooling system--air lock in system- fill radiator to cap level and bleed air out
2--blocked radiator cores -- have a radiator shop do a flow test
3-- fan not working--no power from relay, ECM. coolant temp sensor , fuses-- have an auto electrician check the circuit
4--- blown head gasket /cracked head-- have a compression test done

Rad fan won't turn on when the car is at operating


The first thing I would check would be the temperature sensor that sends a signal to the relay to turn the fan on. Of course make sure you have plenty of water in the radiator or the sensor won't work at all. I have seen anti-freeze come through the sensor and corrode the wires shorting them out. So it could be broken wires, unplugged wires or a bad sensor. I am not sure exactly where the sensor is at on the Pacifica but your local parts store could show you. It is usually in the intake or cylinder head.

98 Camero overheats when driving slow or stop, ok


You need to get the cooling fan checked,it may need a temperature sensor,fan relay or the fan motor may be burnt out.You can check the fan by running your own power and ground to the plug that comes out of the fan motor,unplug it and put the ground to the black wire and positive power to the other one,if it works then the next step would be to check the fan relay.The most common problem if the fan doesn't work but can be made to work with jumper wires is the temperature sensor,you can check it by unplugging it and jumping the wires in the plug.If the rad fans work then you are down to either the water pump or a plugged radiator,a rad shop should be able to narrow it down for you.

Why does my radiator fan not work


Check the 60 amp fuse in the under hood fuse block for the rad fan, if it blew the rad fan is probably seizing up and will need replacing, the other posibility is that the coolant temp sensor is not working properly and the computer does not know how hot the coolant is! and may need replacing.

Aux. Fan not comming on when hot or cold... Boils over. Blew out heater valve... REPLACED: New 3 Prong Fan Relay located by Rt. Sd. Batt. Radiator Relay ( its a 2 prong push in Radiator ). Checked for...


Replace your temperature sensor. There is a sensor specifically for the cooling fans that triggers the relays, and tells the fans to turn on/off. The relays won't energize unless it gets a signal from that sensor.

Radiator fan not turning on time


Check the rad fan fuse or the relay under the hood.
Is the temp going too high? Check and make sure you are not low on rad fluid (engine cool). An air pocket where the fan temp sensor on the rad is located will not activate the sensor.

Failing that, check the rad temp sensor which activates the fan. If this sensor does not close at high temp...the fan won't work.

2005 vw jetta radiator cooling fan wont shut off


Check for a switch at lower part of rad. Should see a wire harness & plug on a sensor at bottom of rad. This sensor/switch also operates fan on/off according to coolant temperature. You may need to disconnect battery to get at it safely.
