Question about 2003 Ford Escape
The motors fan turns on and off all the time but the car is not running hot at all.
this problem just started.
It is normal for the fan to cycle between on and off even though the temperature gage reads normal.
Anytime the coolant temperature rises by approximately 10 degrees above the normal operating temperature the fan cycles on but you won't notice the gage show that small of an increase.

fan motor has a thermal switch which turns on the fan as soon as the engine heats up. what happened there is that the switch is stuck on the closed position which keeps the fan on all the time. you should go to a garrage and have the part changed.

I had the same thing happen to me...fans would run even when car turned off. Was the thermostat. Got one with high temp-92* I think, it did the trick!

sounds like the sensor is becoming questionable or a hi resistance ground in this part of the blower sensor circuit

It will most likely be a Thermos fan switch if you go to parts store git a new one they can point out to you where it is located ,most of the time they are in the head near the thermostat ,but some times they are in the radiator hope this helps . IT could also be the relay,you could ground the thermo fan switch it should cause the fan to run then you will know that the relay is OK ,hope this is some help ,feel free to ask if we can be of any further assistance Thank you.
