Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

Either one of my fans are coming on and causing my car to over heat. I switched fuse #9 and #19 and problem was not solved. I also tried running the A/C and fans still did not come on. Could some one help me?

With the connector plugged in at the cooling fan try jumping power to the dark green/light green wire or the yellow/violet wire. one or the other fans should come on. If the don't check the black wires for a good ground.

The relays are controlled by the PCM. you will need a scan tool to see if the PCM is capable of turning the fans on.

I have bought a Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25 ( Model May 2010 ). Have noticed that the fan switches on and off frequently - even after a short drive in cool ambient temperatures. Is this normal ?


Hello,
The problem you are experiencing with your car is as a result of the fact that the fuse which supplies power to the fan from the main source(battery) is working eppileptically which means its failing in discharging power.

1.The solution is to open the fuse box and replace the fuse which controls the fan.
2.If the problem persists it means the problem is from the relay switch,which means the relay switch has to be replaced.

Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya.

Over heating the electric fan is not coming on . removed thermostst but still heats up. Does the fan got a fuse or control manual. Was running well in a traffic ram i noticed the temp climbing the hazard...


There is a termo switch witch turns on and off the fans, it could be faulty. First check the fuse, than directly connect fan to the battery, if fans start to spin, check the fuse and if the fuse is ok than it's probably termo switch or maybe it's damaged wire in between fuse box and the fan....

Car will overheat while at idle


yes the head gaskets leaking on modern aluminum head engines is all to common. never overheat them, if they start to get hot shut it down and find out why, it can of course be the fans and plugged radiators or faulty thermostats but sounds like in your case the head gasket is leaking and combustion gas is entering the cooling system and this causes an overheat

Check your fuse and relay to the radiator fan, There going to be high amp fuse so most likely will be in the fuse box by the battery. If the fuse and relay is good, check the wire harness connection at the fans. The other thing to is to run the engine and turn on your A/C, the A/C should over ride the switch and turn on the fans. If the fans do turn on, inspect the radiator fluid, make sure it's at it's level and if it's never been serviced. It may be time, Orange antifreeze has a life of 150,000 miles or 5 years and the green antifreeze has a life of 30,000 miles and 1 year. The thermostat may also gone bad but i don't think at this case since your car only heats up while your stopped. If everything is working (fan) just replace the antifreeze 50/50 mix (Antifreeze/water), Water has great heat transfer but boils so antifreeze is added, and 100% antifreeze does not have great heat transfer and will gel when heated so the two have to be mixed 50/50 and if your not sure how to mix the two. You can buy them 50/50 mix and the capacity to your car total fill is 7.3 liter 4 cylinder/ 8.6 liter 6 cylinder.

Radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp switch and fuse fan works if hot wired it's on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

Engine Over heating while cooling fan not responding to cooldown!


Sounds like the temp switch for the fan or the fan motor itself. To check run jumper wires from your batter directly to fan.. If it turns on, then you have a bad switch. If not , your fan motor is bad. I do not have a diagram for your car but finding wires from your fan assemble should be easy. Trace starting from fan. There should be a harness soon after the fan for you to connect jumper wires to to check fan. And by the way it does not matter witch way you hook the jumper wires up. It will only change the direction the fan motor turns. Just make sure you disconnect the harness so that you do not create a back flow of current.The reason for your coolant overflow to be getting excessive pressure is the heat in the system is causing boil over(the car is too hot).
