Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Check the relay in the fuse box inside the engine compartment if thats not it then it will most likely be the fan motor itself. Rarely see fan motors go bad so I am betting on the relay.

It could be the program in the ECM where it may run for a few min before it's commanded by the ECM to shut down or the other thing is the radiator fan Relay may be bad and is sticking in the close loop position and needs to be replaced. A bad Relay may get stuck in the open loop and your not going to have an cool fan working, causing overheating in stop and go traffic. Good luck and hope this helps.

could be a number of simple problems. one is your temperature sensor...if it fails it wont turn on your coolant fans. 2nd is your coolant level might be low...if its low then the hot coolant wont be able to "come in contact" with the coolant temp sensor thus result in over heating...i doubt its fan failure as it is highly unlikely that BOTH fans would fail at the same time. however it is possible. lastly is electrical to both fans has failed...put a tester into the connector (not into the fan) and start the car....let it warm up...as it get too hot the voltage should suddenly be there...if not...then the fans are not getting power and you have electrical issues. may have to trace the wires and find out if they got damaged by a belt...the fan or other moving part... i hope this helps you out

One of two possible problems.
1. Faulty fan (replace fan)
2. Faulty fan relay (replace fan relay, about $45 DIY)
let me know if you want instructions on fan relay
