Radiator fan wont shut off on 2003 cavalier 2.2 ecotec


Follow the wiring from the fan motor it should lead you to the heat sensor that is located on your radiator, this sensor swithch as possibly stuck in the closed circuit position that's wye your fan is running constantly as this switch completes the power supply to the fan you can pull the spade clip of the sensor to stop the fan until you get a new switch sensor.
Good luck

Is there a cooling fan switch on a 96 buick century if so where is it located


The engine temp sensor sends a signal to the computer and the computer grounds the fan relay when it is needed.
I'm showing 6 relays on the firewall under the windshield.
The two on the right side are high and low radiator fan relays.

The fan that is behind the radiator isnt turning on and my 1994 chevy cavalier keeps overheating


test your fan motor.run b+ and ground to your motor and see if it runs.if it doesnt it is probably your coolant fan switch located on the cylinder head or the coolant fan relay.hope this helps.keep posted.

My a/c comp and engine cooling fan are not working it seems like they both quit at the same time is there a sensor that opperates both on a 2001 chevy cavalier


there is a fan relay, and an AC relay that both turn the fan on at certain times, including when the AC is on. a coolant temp sensor tells the computer (ECM) to turn on the fan but only when the engine reaches a certain temp. an electronic component locator can show you where these sensors and relays are located. they are not very expensive. your local auto parts store can look that up for you.

Temp sender


If it's like my 98 cavalier it's located in the housing where the upper radiator goes into engine, it's right beside it.

Cooling fan wont work


The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
