WHAT TYPE OF CAR DO YOU HAVE? I WILL ADVISE YOU BASED ON ORDINARY CARS. SINCE YOU HAVE NO FANS WORKING POSSIBLE CAUSE IS EITHER THE FAN RELAY STOPPED WORKING OR FUSE IS BLOWN. IF YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR CAR OR ANY LITTLE MECHANICAL KNOWLEDGE, I SUGGEST TO GO TO THE FUSE BOX SOME ARE IN THE ENGINE BAY EITHER ON THE LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE AND YOU CAN READ ON THE PLASTIC BOX " FUSE BOX ". OPEN IT AND ON COVER INNER SIDE YOU WILL READ ABOUT FUSES AND RELAYS LOCATION. OR SOME OTHER MODELS DO HAVE THE FUSE BOX BY THE DRIVER' S SIDE NEXT TO LEGROOM AND AGAIN IS WRITTEN ABOUT FUSES OR RELAYS. DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER JUST CALL AN ELECTRICIAN TO HELP.

Fans not running


You may have a 2nd problem. Those fans should run when the car gets warmer than usual. The TDI you have is VERY good about being efficient, and produces little waste heat. Those fans don't come on anywhere near as much as a gas burner BUT they need to come on when you're really working the engine or it's a very hot day. Fan motor failure was common on these cars. With engine running turn on the A/C- this activates both fans to kick on. Do both fans kick on ? If yes- could be temp sensor, also a commonly replaced part- if no check fans. With battery disconnected (for safety) spin the fans by hand. Are they stuck or do they sound awful ? Fan motors may be shot. If fans spin free may be fan relay- check for power at fan connectors with engine running and A/C on

I have a Saturn SL2 (2001) and when I turn my car off the A/C fan stays on even when the keys are out and the engine is off? Idk what this could be but if you could give me a few solutions I would be up...


some vehicles have their thermo fans set on a hot wire, unfortunately when you stop your engine, you stop water flow, after a long drive your engine is hot, turn off your engine, water flow stops, engine transfers more heat from the block, coolant heats up, fans turn on to cool the motor,(the motor only knows that the temprature has gone up

My coolant fans don't work. What should I look for? I'm bringing it to a repair shop a mile away. Will it be safe to drive it that far? The temperature here is about 100 degrees outside now.


Hi,
If you start out with a cold engine, the Bonneville should not overheat traveling one mile, with out the A/C on.
If you are in stop and go traffic, roll your windows down, turn heater on high temp and high fan, and shut the Bonneville off at stop lights.
Watch the heat gauge.
The coolant fans not working may be a fuse, relay, or temperature sending unit switch.
Best Wishes,
Wayne

Cannot get cooling fans to turn on for radiator???


The cooling fans won't run until either the engine coolant temperature reaches about 218 degrees or the air conditioner/defroster are on. Once the engine reaches appx 218 degrees the fan will come on and run until the coolant temperature drops a few degrees and will then turn back off. If either the a/c or defrost are turned on then the cooling fan will begin to run to remove the heat from the a/c system and should stay on until either is turned off. If the engine is overheating in slow or stop and go traffic then the fan may not be working at all due to a bad fan motor or blown fuse.

Not sure if radiator fans are working, car overheating. which fuse do I check?


LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. ON DRIVER SIDE FOR FUSE BOX.LOOK ON FUSE BOX COVER IT HAS LOCATION FOR FUSES AND RELAYS.MOST TIME PROBLEM WITH COOLING FAN CIRCUIT WILL CAUSE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BAD ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR WILL CAUSE COOLANT FANS NOT TO TURN CAUSE OVERHEATING. ON.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP SEE IF STOP OVER HEATING. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD HOTWIRE COOLANT FANS MAKE SURE FAN MOTORS ARE GOOD AND NO SHORTS AT FAN CONNECTOR WIRES.

A/c and car over heating


sounds like your cooling fans are not working. look under the hood with the a/c on and check if your electric cooling fan s are working. they are mounted to the inside of the radiator.

My radiator fans both have stopped working


Could be a few things. If your fans were just working then just stopped, it could be the fan motor. It could also be the relay. If you know where your lo speed and high speed cooling fan relays are located, you can eliminate this step easily. Take a known working relay (rear defrost or something not essential for starting) and replace the fan relay with the known operational relay while your engine is running and A/C is turned on. If the fans start, there's your problem, if not, then it's probably your fan motors.
Make sure the fuse that protects the fan speed relays is not blown as well.

Car over heating when stopped in traffic but not when movin


Hi. the first test will be to open the hood and inspect the cooling fans. check to see if the fans are activating in intervals during the running cycle. if you don't see any fan rotation at all, this will confirm cooling fan failure and you will need to replace the fans or fan relay. Now, if the fans are running and the car is continuing to run hot when stopped, i would move to the next inspection point. the next problem spot will be a faulty water pump or faulty thermostat


If these two devices are malfunction in any way, it will cause the symptoms you are experiencing. at this point. the first thing is to make sure those fans are actually working.


Please rate and have a great day:)
