Has your vehicle been overheating? if not then it sounds like there might not be a problem here. Your cooling fan starts and stops not only automatically but intermittently on its own. And when you turn your air on, your car loses a little bit of its ability to cool itself. So to compensate for that, your cooling fan enables

My Jeep cherokee fan motor run,when ignition switch is off,but does not run when engine is running.why?


the fans are there to cool the engine but once you stop the car the temperature is not being cooled by movement of air and water circulation via the water pump so the fan cuts in for a short time to stop the temperatures causing damage. when driving the air cools the motor enough to keep it a t the right temp no air movement no cooling.

2003cadillac cts running hot change thermostra


You may have replaced the right thing,but make sure there is no air in the cooling system,if there is it will run hot,with the air conditioner off,make sure the cooling fans come on,and go off on there own,if they do not,then there is air in the system or the coolant tempurature sensor is bad,most likely.The cooling fan relays could cause this also ,or the cooling fan,or fans have gone out,and need to be replaced.

Fan will not turn off


which fan? Interior fan, or radiator cooling fan? Is it the radiator cooling fan, or the fan controlled by the air-conditioning?

Run the vehicle, turn on and off the air-conditioning to identify which of the fans in the engine bay is the one triggered by the air-con and which is the primary cooling fan.
If the primary cooling fan is permanently engaged, then first try replacing it's relay as it may have fused closed.

Cooling fan temp light stays on when air condition is on. fans are not kicking on. Is it the fan module ?


I didn't know it had a light on the dash that said "cooling fan temp".
My 93 doesn't.
The cooling fans are controlled by the computer and turned on when the ac is running or when the engine reaches 220 degrees.
A mechanic would check the fuse and relay for power and the fan motor for power and ground.

Air conditioner works fine while driving. When stopped for a light, temperature gage goes up and fan blows hot air.


Hello: Check the radiator cooling fan. With engine running and A/C on open hood look down on the back-side of the grill, that's where the cooling fan is. It should be running, if not check the fuses, cooling fan relays/module if they are ok then you may have a cooling fan motor failure. You can use jumper cables to hot wire the fan motor to see if it runs.

My air conditioner makes a weird noise when I turn the fan on and it will not blow cool air.


will the fan run? Is the air warm, is there no air? it won't cool if the fan won't circulate air across the cooling coil. You may have a fan problem

I have 2003 grand cherokee with 140000 miles that overheats at idle. as soon as i start moving again, the temp goes back to normal.


You have two fan's on your truck, 1 is a fan clutch runs with the drive belt, 2 elec fan motor, with test light and engine running at normal temp, just a little bit above 1/2 way on your temp gauge check voltage at elec. cooling fan harness if you have voltage at one of the two wire's and fan don't turn on, bad cooling fan motor, on the fan clutch after you check voltage at elec. fan motor turn engine off, with your hand spin drive belt fan if it spin's freely bad fan clutch, replace it.Also check cooling level.Hope this was very helpful

Air won't cool when the car is stopped on a 2004 chevy cavalier. car temp is normal


make sure electric coolant fan is running.if not check or replace fan relay.the coolant fan has to be running to cool down refrigerant in condensor.so refrigerant in condensor is cooled back down to high pressure liquid so it can go to evaporator.see ifcoolant fan not working.the AC is not going to cool.when you driving the condensor is cooling down from moving air when car is going.when you come to a stop.cooling fan suppose to be on so condensor gased can be cooled down.

I HAVE A 91 HONDA ACCORD WHICH HAS TWO ELEC FANS


Both fans cool the motor. If you have the air conditioner on both fans will run because the cars cooling system will have to disapate more heat. If you have the air conditioner off only one fan will run because the heat load on the engine isn't as great.
