Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

1994 Pontiac Sunbird LE Sedan radiator cooling fan not working.

I need help troubleshooting and diagnosing the problem. The fan does not come on when I start the engine, nor does it after it has idled for a while. I checked the fuse first, but it was ok. I don't have the wiring schematics, nor do I have any experience diagnosing nor troubleshooting.

1994 Pontiac Sunbird LE Sedan radiator cooling fan - 57441307
Above is the diagram for a 4 cylinder. It appears that you might have a fusible link which looks like a regular wire instead of a regular fuse. If you have A/C on your car you can turn it on and this automatically should turn the cooling fan on. If I remember correctly these cars have problems with the Coolant temperature sensor located near the thermostat. It will have one yellow wire going to it. You can also try to swap the cooling fan relay with the horn relay or another relay that looks similar under the fuse block. There should be a diagram of the fuses and relays under the cover. Try with the engine off and key out try to turn the fan by hand. If it does not move freely the cooling fan motor is bad. Other than that you will have to bring to a shop to have the circuits tested... Good luck.

2002 ford taurus starts and dies. can start and run at higher rpm by pumping gas pedal.What causes it to die?


Sounds like a fuel filter or the fuel pump inside the tank. Try the fuel filter first as it is the easiest. It is under the driver door area. The fuel pump is located by removing the fuel tank.

I have a 2000 Pontiac grand am i get a reading of P0480?? Please help


P0480 has to do with cooling fan relay, fuse, circuit or the fan it self, start car, turn on A/C the cooling fan should come on with a/c on and car in park engine at idle RPM. If it don't then you will have to troubleshoot and find out what has failed.

Thermostate ranges from overheating to just fine while driving.


is the fan working? if the fan isnt working it will overheat when idling, as it wont be sucking cold air through the radiator. a quick way to diagnose that your cooling system is fine is when stuck in traffic, turn your heaters onto hot, if the engine temp gauge shows that the engine is cooling down, the cooling system will be fine 9/10 times.

hope this helps.
