You need to replace the cooling fan because the resistor is in the cooling fan and it is best to go to a salvage yard and have them look it up on a computer and it will tell what fan will work on your car

Where is the cooling fan thermostat on a 99 ford contour


The cooling fan is controlled by the coolant temperature sensor near the thermostat, and when it senses too high temperature of the coolant, it operates the fan relay.
Check the fuse for the cooling fan, the cooling fan relay, and the fan itself for proper operation. You can use a multimeter to see if power is getting to the sensor. If not, and you find the fuse is good, then you'll have to find the break in the wire.

1996 Ford contour engine cooling fan comes on high about a minute after starting car and wont turn off or slow down.


Well it could be a problem with the fan relay, or it could be a safety feature of the computer.
if the computer finds a problem with the cooling fan or the engine temp sensor, it will turn on the fan to try to prevent overheating. Even if the engine is cold.
If the check engine light is not staying on, I would check the fan relay for power and ground.

I have a 1995 Ford Contour SE, 2.5L. I have two questions - 1. The cooling fans are not currently working and 2. The in dash temperature gauge is at max temp, even when the engine is cold. Is there an...


Answer to second question: It appears that that the wire to the coolant Temp Sensor has developed e short to the chassis somewhere which is giving the Max reading on the guage. Check the wiring in the engine bay around the Thermostat area for chafing or if the wire to the sensor has become disconnected and is touching the engine. The cooling fans normally are turned on by another sensor either near the temp sensor or on the radiator. Check the wiring around those places as well.

is the temp gauge going to hot? if so, it may be going into failsafe mode where it shuts off half the cylinders to protect the engine.

check your engine coolant temp sensor. It sends a signal to tunrn the cooling fan on.
Does the cooling fan come under the hood?
Does the cooling fan come on when you turn the a/c on?

report back.
