Could be a few things.If you check radiator fan and its ok move down to the thermal power switch usualy at the bottom of the radiator.Make sure you have power in and out of the swich when the engine is at operating temp.Use a test light/probe easy to use and cheap to buy.If the switch is ok the next step is the relay in the box with lid next to the battery.Sometimes just pulling the relay out and putting back in will fix the problem due to poor contact.To sum up its usualy the thermal temp switch but check every thing else before wasting money on the wrong things.Good luck

Try wiring the fans straight to the battery to see if its the fans them self if fans work off battery possibly a sensor problem

Electrical fans wont kick on, car will run hot if they dont kick in..Tried changing fuses still wont come on..


The fans have a seperate temperature sensor either in the radiator or the block. Follow the fan wires to locate this sensor and unplug the sensor and with the key on touch the wires together. If the sending unit is bad the fans will come on. If the sending unit works the fan motor is bad.

1994 magna 2.6 L engine shutters slightly when idling in drive but ok when in park or reverse


Possibly when the radiator fan kicks on it robs a little power from the engine causing it to shutter a little.When the engine is in park the RPM is higher thus when the fan comes on it doesnt cause much of a load on the engine.Just open the hood as someone starts the car,puts it in park and feel for the fan to come on and see if it's causing the engine to shutter

Radiator fan is not kicking on when it should


First off, I would disconnect the power supply to the fan and let the engine heat up to operating temperature and use a simple volt meter (you can purchase one at walmart or any part store for $5-15) to see if any voltage is even getting to the fan, it is possible that the fan motor could have failed. Also, you can run a couple wires directly from the battery to the fan ( one for negative, one for positive) it shouldn't matter if you switch up which is which on the fan, as a DC motor will just spin in reverse if you swap the polarity. This will rule out the possibility of the fan.
