On some cars the fans will run anytime the heating or cooling system is in the defrost mode try turning it to the vent mode or floor and see if one or both go off

99 chevy Cooling fans wont come on Chevy Malibu ??? Can i wire them hot to come on ?


Yes, you could wire them to run anytime the ignition is on, but that is not a good idea. Have you checked the fuse? Have you checked to see if the fans actually work? Turn the A/C on and one fan should run continuously. Have you replaced the thermal relay for the cooling fan? You need to just find out why they do not work. Running them continuously is not a good idea. You want the engine to reach full operating temperature as soon as possible. And you do not want to be constantly cooling it down by running the fans all the time. This will cause poor fuel mileage.

country driving at high speeds keep engine air cooled. but in city there is not much air to cool the engine. check the sensor for the fans. relay for fans must be ok, cause you said if you disconnect sensor then fans run. replace fan sensor. also make sure there is a proper amount of coolant in system. (do this first).

2001 chevy malibu- when car starts cooling fans do not come on but then do


your coolant temp sensor on the engine block is probably faulty, however, keep in mind that if it really isn't all that hot outside they may not need to turn on. Once you activate the A/C the fans come on automatically since they have to cool the condensor...

If your car is not overheating do not worry about it.
