Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Fan wont turn on temp gage says its not hot but will spit steam from water reservor so i know its getting too hot we used to turn on the ac button and were using that fan to cool it but now its not turning on any ideas i have the sensor for the head but cant fing where it goes so any help much appreciated
What kind of car? i'm assuming it's the focus above... oh and thanks for your help on my suburban, i'll check that fusable link tomorrow and see if that is what it is. Hopefully i can help you with your problem... it sounds like you are having problems with your CTS (coolant temp sensor). If you got the sensor, you should be able to locate it around the thermostat housing near the water pump... (if it is around a 97 or older). If newer, then your CTS is probably located on the Inlet to the pump itself. Test the fan with a volt meter to see if there is continuity to the fan itself before you replace the sensor. Alot of the time it's usually the motor that goes bad before the sensor on focus's pre 97. That seems to be a re-occuring problem with those cars. And since you dont need to bleed off coolant to check that, see if that is what it is first.
