Question about 1993 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Cooling fan always comes on after the car is turned off

'93 accord, 2.2l auto, no A/C.

The Cooling fan always comes on after about 15-20 seconds after the car is parked and ignition turned off. Fan stays on for up to a minute and then turns off. It only does this once, it's not coming on repeatedly.

Is this normal for Honda's? What can I check for?

Any advise is appreciated

This is normal. The fans are thermostatic controled. When you park your car and the engine is not running and not circulating water the temp. will come up and the fans will come on and cool the water down. Make sure you check your water level in the radiator and expansion tank. AFTER the car has cooled down.

SOURCE: P 0139 on a 2003 Honda Accord . I just repkaced

I am assuming that you have a 4 wire sensor.First check the 02 fuses, these are for the heater side of the 02. pull them out and check. this way if there is a bad connection you will fix the problem by putting them back in. Clear the code and drive the car . if the code returns you will have to unplug the sensor and check the voltage coming from the car, two wires will have voltage with the key on, one will be 12 volts, and one will be 5 volts, if both wires have the right voltage then you will have to replace the catalitic converter. P0139 is slow responce. these are the only things that I know that will set this code.

I have a 93 honda accord . the cooling fan stopped working . i tested the fans to the battery an only one worked . if one does work will it make the other one not come on?

No, they work independently. The passenger side fan is the AC fan, and should be on anytime the AC is used. The driver's side fan is the radiator cooling fan, and is turned on by a temperature switch or by the computer when it deems the fan should be on.
If you jumpered them from the battery and one would not turn on, it would seem the fan motor is bad.

I would have it checked for a blown head gasket. Combustion gasses in the cooling system can keep the temperature switch for the fan from operating properly.

Fans will not com on wnd driving

Try turning on the a/c while you are driving or sitting still and one of the fans should kick on. You will have an a/c fan which will only turn on when the climate control is operating. The second fa is a cooling fan that kicks on when the coolant temperature rises above about 190 degrees or more. Check the sensor, relay and fuse for the cooling fan and the relay and fuse for the a/c fan. Your engine may not get hot enough to need the fan so you may have no problem.

Cooling fans not coming on

two possible problems here.

one- you have a bad relay for the fan. you can test this by switching the relay with another one in the car of the same size if you have one. if not they are only a few dollars at the auto parts store and you can always bring it back if that dosent help

two- the fan motor is burned up. you can replace the motor instead of the whole fan. should only take you about half hour

Fan is not turning

U have a leak somewere in your cooling system and needs to be fixed, plus the fan has a censor that tells it to come on and that is probably bad,but check the fuses first.

My son's 93 supreme is overheating within a few mins of driving. I think we should first change the thermostat, then is there a sensor that we should look at as well?

A thermostat is always a good thing to replace as it is relatively in-expensive, however, I would be checking to see if the cooling fan is coming on. Typically, you should have the cooling fan coming on between 100 - 108 degrees celsius. If you don't have cooling fan operation, I would check for power to it (12 volts at cooling fan motor harness). Let me know what you find!
