1) Check for power to the fan unit. Replace fan unit if power present.

2) Check and/or replace thermistor.

The radiator fan closest to my engine wont work in my 2003 kia rio, i have checked the relay and swapped the fuses over but no luck. What else could the problem be?

Hi Julie, the dual fan cooling system generally works with the larger fan being the radiator cooling fan and the smaller fan being the A/C cooling fan! If you start the vehicle and turn on the A/C and select the coldest setting within a few seconds both fans should start working!

Replaced radiator, filled it with antifreeze

Likely somebody didn't hook up the fan(s) properly when the radiator was replaced.. OR ... hopefully, this wasn't a case where the original problem with the car was the cooling fans not working.... and somebody diagnosed the problem as a clogged radiator????? I had the same problem recently with the fans not working, and the problem was a relay switch that turned on the fans when more cooling was needed.....

2003 dodge durango started overheating and now wont start. changed the water pump and put new battery and still wont start. What could it be?

ECT wont kill the engine. If it over heated and you kept driving it. You just might have blown the engine. Put a socket on the balancer bolt and see if you can turn the engine by hand. Clock wise.

Radiator fan

either the fan is bad or you need a temp. sensor, to check fans, run a wire from positive on fan wires to positive on battery, if need be ground fans!! if they are ok the fan should start running,,

Thermo fan on radiator wont turn off

It wont hurt anything if they stay on all the time cus the fan will mostly runs off your alternator. But if does bother you then it meant be the sensor on the fan. Or you can install a switch to turn the fun off and on with a toggle switch. But its up to you. But for the most part as long as the fan keeps going to cool off your radiator you should be ok. But i am thinking it maybe the sensor not telling the fan to shut off and turn on when its suppose to.
