Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.

In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.

I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.

2008 Kia Rio interior lights and clock wont turn on


You are right... You will need to check your fuses. You can buy a fuse puller and pull each one out to check to see if the metal bar is separated or you can often times just tell by looking at it. Most interior fuses is on drivers side .

Lights work, radio works battery is new and fully charged but when I try to start it...nothing. No starter clicking..nothing


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter. You should have battery voltage on the large cable, and power on the small wire when you turn the key switch to start.
There is a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in the circuit between the starter and the key switch that could have failed.

My fan is not running, causing my car to boil over anytime I have it running too long. :( What can we do to fix this? Also, the check engine light is on, my dad hooked up a scanner to it and we got a code,...


is the fuse and relay for the fan ok !! make sure the fans are ok, by jumping fan connector from positive on fan to positive on battery. negative on battery to negative on fan. if fan works it could be a bad coolant sensor, or a themostat thats stuck open, not allowing coolant to get hot and thats why the electric fans do not work. the coolant will not get hot enough if thermostat sticks open. it will by pass the thermostat and never get hot. have a good day !!

Possible early signs of a water pump problem. A failing waterpump will circulate coolent when the RPMS are high but when you slow down, so does the waterpump, thereby causing overheating.
