Have you checked the fan relay to see if it is getting voltage and a ground signal from the computer ?

HI...
On your VOLVO 850.
The Head Lights are Relatinated Directtly with the Ignition switch.
The ignition switch send 12v. Power to the MAIN HEAD LIGHT RELAY and BULB FAILURE WARNIG SENSOR. Incorporated in the Same relay.
Very Important check the Battery terminals, And few ground Below the Battery Holder.
The turn signal switch , has the Funtion to Change the Head lights to LOW or HIGH Beam.
Check for proper funtion.
On left side of the Engine compartment In the Fuse block.
Check the FUSE # 13, 15amp. Replace if need.
The TURN signal work with the Same FUSE # 13. 15 amp.
Related with the Turn Signal switch.
Ok. The blower MOTOR.
Some times work And some times not.
Check the ground wire "BLACK" Below right side of Instrument Panel. If the ground is OK..
Turn the Ignition key to RUN position,
SET the A/C fan to MAX position or HIGH position.
When the Fan is set to High The system make a BY pass At the Blowert motor REsistor. and use a Blower motor Realy to give a High speed.
Using a TEST LIGHT,
Check if There a POWER 12v. at the Green/red Wire.
If you found Power . Check if there a Negative 12v. at the Black WIRE. If you found negative 12v.
Replace the BLOWER MOTOR..
For the Instrument Panel. I recomend Check the FUSE # 3
In the fuse box, Left Rear of the engine compartment.
If the fuse is ok. Check for Power 12v. if you found power
check all the grounds. But if NOT. I recomend Replace the Ignition switch. Because can be the Cause of the Electrical problem in your car.

OK.. I hope this help to try diagnostic your vehicle.
Thank you for use fixya.

SOURCE: 97 chevy cavalier starter works sometimes, next won't disengage

It sounds as though the solenoid on the starter is stuck. if it is a used starter a light tapping with a hammer may release it (very light). DON"T tap it if it is a new or rebuilt starter you may void your warranty. If it is a new starter it should have a warranty. If installed at a garage call them for warranty repair if you installed it yourself pull it off and take it back for replacement. Most places I deal with for starters and alternators, either new or rebuilt have least a 1 year warranty. mike

SOURCE: cooling fans on 2001 chevy malibu will not come on unless ac on

the relays control circuit is grounded by ECM (computer) . to check this make sure the is hot enough for the fans to be commanded on by computer and check to see if you have voltage at relay and it has ground from computer . you may need ECM.
good luck

The engine Temp gauge got real close to "H"but went down soon as i got rolling.Also engine cooling fans not coming on. even when i engaged AC. the fans are electric. . .?


The reason that you drive and engine cools down is that cool wind is blowing in the grille in front of the car and when you stop, that natural wind stops cooling it down.
First check the fan fuse. If it is OK check the fan itself: just apply wires on the connector of the fan and attache it to the battery (dont mix "+" and "-") If fan will not start, replace the fan motor. If it starts check for the Fan Motor Relay

Citroen troubleshooting


I had similar problems 2 times with the automatic heat / AC module.
I suppose your system is automatic too.

First time the commands were working erratically acting weird. Sometimes was heating at full capacity blowing heads off. At other times it was not starting at all.
The whole module had to be replaced.

Second time if the car stayed in the sun the AC was heating, after starting the engine and cooling started only after achieving greater speeds (above ~60km/h). Whenever the speed decreased the system began to heat again eventually. It turned out that the engine cooling fan was broken and had to be replaced. That fan cools both the engine radiator and the AC radiator. If it is faulty your engine might be at risk of overheating at low speeds.

2008 vw jetta makes noise from blower


OK. The noise you are hearing is the recirculation flap motor. It could be what is causing the condensation. Easy way to check in after the noise has stopped push the recirculation button on the AC controls to see if the noise happens. If the motor is bad and the flap isn't closing you could be getting moisture from the outside air. As far as the check engine light goes there is no relation. 2 completely different systems. The flap motor would probably run you a couple hundred of dollars. The check engine light could be anything.

Noticed temp gauge running a little higher than normal.cooling fans turn on and off very quickly. turned on ac and the fans run. trying to diagnose without getting taken to the cleaners from the...


Check your coolant levels. If the temperature isn't much higher than normal, you may be fine, or you may have a Coolant Temperature Sensor going bad, and reporting the incorrect temperature. Even though the thermostat was replaced 8 months ago, it is possible it is already going bad again. I believe this is more of a Coolant Temp. Sensor fault though. The cooling fans are On when the AC is on. With the AC off, the cooling fans come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature, and cut off once the temperature is back in range. The Coolant Temperature sensor shouldn't cost much, and is easy to replace. I would start with that, top it off with coolant, and then maybe change the thermostat.

My a/c comp and engine cooling fan are not working it seems like they both quit at the same time is there a sensor that opperates both on a 2001 chevy cavalier


there is a fan relay, and an AC relay that both turn the fan on at certain times, including when the AC is on. a coolant temp sensor tells the computer (ECM) to turn on the fan but only when the engine reaches a certain temp. an electronic component locator can show you where these sensors and relays are located. they are not very expensive. your local auto parts store can look that up for you.

Ac fan speed


Replace the blower motor resister,this is the speeds for the blower motor,it is located very near the blower motor,and is mounted on the blower box,and it actually goes inside the box,to keep it cool.The reason for it`s failure is the blower motor,even though the blower motor sounds,and runs good,it is drawing too many amps.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

My electric fan wont come on.


First check the fuse,then check to see if the coolant level in the radiator is low,then if you can check the cooling fan relay,and the cooling fan motor to make sure it is good,if all this checks out fine,then replace the coolant sensor,and bleed the cooling system of all the air in it.
