Over heating did a compreson test good checked fan by bypass ok , change cooling fan relay,termostat, fuses,cant find any thing else theres 2 sensors and 2 fans 1 of the fans will turn on if its over heating but only if i turn the car off completely if i turn the key on it turns off i tryed to see if any of the fans would turn on if i turn on the a/c but no ,didnt work the a/c is not working so i dont know if thats a factor but i dont care about the a/c just want the fans to work i tryed to ground both of the sensors but no response i dont think i did anything wrong but any way thats my head ache if any one has had this problem and figured it out please helpppp meeee car is driving me crazy thanks

    The car over heats at idel and none of the fans turn on ,only one does if you shut the car off, when i turn on the a/c it doesnt come on at all but like i had said before the a/c seems not to work so i think that one of the fans wont turn on any ways because of that reason ,but the other one should turn on when the temp starts going up i would think , if any more Q's let me know what you need to know. thanks .......

    If its getting hot then both fans should turn also both should be on with ac working or not. Do you know how to disconnect the fan thats not running? If so i would like for you to jumper the fan to the battery and tell me it works then.

    Does it overheat at idel or when you are driving. A fan will have 2 setting high and low. When you turn the a/c on the fan will kick on high. I

This may work for you, I'm not sure about your fans, but in a 1992 Ford Ranger when I kept overheating in idle or after turning off it was the heater core, you may want to try bypassing core and you should be fine, of course this is a band-aid fix. You're definitely going to replace the heater core (if that is the problem) and hunt down why your fans are not kicking on for a permanent fix.

Car over heats fans dont come on

Check fuse for cooling fan, check temperature sensor functioning for cooling fan, check relay for the fan (if you have one), check cooling fan motor circuit with resistance check (should read low Ohms, less than 2 Ohms beacause the fan is a powerful motor with 10-20 Amps).
If everything is measured O.K. you should check the wiring. Disconnect the connector at the cooling fan motor, connect a test light to the harness from the car (not to the motor side) and run the engine. Watch the temperature gauge and before you the boiling (overheating) the bulb should lit up. If not you should go back with this test step by step to the relay. The relay can be tested if you can find a same one on your relay board and swap temporary (e.g. swap the AC clutch relay with the cooling fan relay)

Cooling fan does not come on

This is controlled by a cooling fan sensor/temperature sensor, as well as fuses, and a relay. These will have to be checked.

Make sure your coolant level is full, the coolant temperature switch won't work if the level is too low. If coolant is low, you need to find out where it went to by pressure testing the cooling system.

If it's not low and the fuses are good, the relay is working:

The fan should be tested, bypassing any sensors to make sure it is functioning properly.

The sensors can be tested to be sure they are working properly at the correct temperature with a voltmeter/ohm meter.

Reverse troubleshooting the wiring and ignition is the next step if you haven't found the problem.

Good luck !

My car is overheating

Hello, You did not indicate what vehicle this is. But in general, most cars have 2 water sensors. One makes the dash gauge work and the other makes the Electric radiator fan work. Check with a good Autoparts store like Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance for parts application. These stores will also scan your vehicle for free.
When you have an Electric cooling fan there are usually 2 speeds on them. When the engine is really hot(Overheating) and when the A/C is switched on, most will run on High speed. You can sometimes have only low speed and the car will be Okay until you get in slow traffic or use the A/C. There are Relays for the fan which turn on when the water sensor(remember there are usually two)activates them.
These are things to test. If the water temp sensor is working, if the relay for the cooling fan is working, or if the cooling fan motor is bad. Check the fuse panel for a blown fuse, but that only means there really is a problem that has to be fixed. It is the reason the fuse failed.

There is another type of cooling fan that has a "clutch" on it. It may be used in combination with an Electric cooling fan. The clutch is fluid filled and responds to air temperature. It is suppose to work really good in hot weather and coast(free-wheel) in cold weather.

Finally, clogged Catalytic converters can cause your problem. Your engine can build up heat because of them, but usually some kind of "Check" light will activate telling you something is wrong.

When you post a problem, remember to give the type of car you have.

Cooling fans not coming on before engine overheats and coolant is pumped out of the overflow.

2 things of what it might airlock, caused by improper bleeding of the sytem, when it is topped up...or coolant temp snesor, has failed or poor wiring......

Cooling fan quit running and i cant find relay

Relay may be ok, check the temperature sending unit that signals the relay to run the fan, it may just provide the ground for the cooling fan! Temperature sensor for the cooling fan circuit!

My cooling fan is not working. The relay is ok. The only way I can get the other fan on is to turn on the heat. Is there a sensor on fan #2?

You can flip flop relays with other like relays to confirm that all relays are ok.
Too, you can bring power and ground to the fan to confirm the fan is ok.
Then next, you can check the resistance of the coolant temperature sensor and confirm it is ok ( typically resistance will be different from cool engine to hot engine )
Let me know what your tests come up with.

Cooling fan don't run on 2003 pontiac grand am

Check the cooling fan fuse,and relay,if they seem to be fine,make sure the fan is good,and change the coolant sensor,and see that there is enough coolant in the system and the thermostat has been changed,and there is no air in the coolant system,bleed it out.

Car's overheating

Check to see if your radiator fans are working. If you have A/C just turn it on and both fans WILL come on unless there is a problem ie: bad fuse(s), relay(s), or motor(s). I don't mean to scare you, but, someone "could" have a pretty bad head gasket leak and still not see fluid come out of the exhaust. If the fans are both working, it could be any number of things from, a faulty coolant temp sensor, a faulty dash gauge, possible air bubble in the cooling system. Another easy check is coolant consumption, if you are leaking coolant into the cylinder while engine is running and/or into the crank case. Just check to see if your coolant level is going down and/or your oil level isn't growing because of coolant filling up your crank case. Hope this info helps...(subytech)...

Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.

In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.

I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.
