Honda Accord 1995 temp sensor

Where is the temp sensor that turns cooling fan on. Both the AC and the cooling fan comes on when you turn on the AC. But the cooling fan does not operate on its on, just changed the waterpump, thrmostat and belts because it was leeking too. Fan stop working then heater hose broke, changed that but no fan then waterpump started leaking so changed that too but fan still not working. Which sensor should i change one by thermostat housing or the one by waterpump outlet?

    The fan just stopped working on it own, it would click on when you shut the car off or if it started to heat up but it stopped working we ran it hot broke the heater hose changed that then got leakage from the waterpump housing, changed that and thermostat and the belts. Fan still won't work unless we turn on the AC then both fans come on. One of the sensors are not telling the fan to switch on.

    Is it the sensor in by the thermostat housing? Theres another one by the waterpump housing. don't want to get the wrong one.

Auto Camry 97 cooling fan is not switching on automatically, the temp gauge shows normal temp. Also both AC and cooling fan works when AC is switched on?

If the temp gauge shows normal, you would not expect the fan to be on much. It is controlled by the coolant temp sensor. If the fan will not come on when the car gets really hot, it is possible this sensor has failed.

It is normal for both AC and cooling fans to be on when you turn on AC to cool setting.

Engine cooling fan only works when ac or defrost is on

if engine at long stand still,the engine temperature will rise about 190 degrees the cooling fan suppose to automaticaly turn on when coolant temperature sensor get hot it cause its resistance decrease causing pcm to send power to coolant fan relays and cooling fans, when you turn on AC the cooling fans suppose to turn on to cool down AC CONDENSOR, IF NOT AC WONT WORK COOLING FAN COOLS DOWN REFRIGERANT SO IT CAN RECYCLE THROUGH THE SYSTEM AGAIN.your cooling is suppose to turn on when engine at a sit still if vechicle not moving as coolant temperature rises at a set point the cooling fans will turn on cool down engine.cooling fans dont turn on when you first cold stsrt vechicle unless you have AC SWITCH ON.if cooling fans dont turn on when vechicle at a long stand still or moving along slow traffic.if coolant temperature sensor been replaced and fuses and relays okay have dealership check see if pcm driver circuit working faulty pcm will cause cooling fans not to turn on.

Try testing the fan switch,some models have a fan sw. and a coolant temp. sensor and some just use one or the other.The fan sw.should be in the side of the radiator either a single wire or two.Coolant temp.sensor should be located in the thermostat housing or real close.

Replaced fan and relay and temp sensor ran car for 20-25 min temp only hit 220 fan didnt come on. when i turned on ac fan came on and once i turned car off fan didnt turn on is there another problem?

The fan should come on between 217 and 223 degrees. That is normal operating temperature when the computer sends the signal for the fan to operate, Did you bleed the cooling system after you replaced the sensor?

On this vehicle there are 3 cooling fan relays and three fuses for the cooling fans.There are 2 in the under hood fuse panel and 1 in the instrument panel.You need to check the fuses and make sure they are all good.They get there input via the coolant temp sensor for the computer which in turn signals the cooling fan relays to turn on the fans.The other thing with the a/c clutch coming on and off.If the a/c system is low on freon this will cause the clutch to cycle more.If you can get a scan tool you need to monitor the coolant temp sensor to see if it is reading the same as the temp on the temp gauge.The other thing you an do is check for codes.Hope this helps and let me know what you come up with.

the electric cooling fan for the radiator will not turn on when the engine reaches normal operating temp, its only supposed to come on if the engine temp goes over the normal temp. (around 220 degrees)
it is normal for the fan to come on any time the a/c or defroster is turned on.

Radiator fan runs all the time when heat or a/c is on

Don't know about an Escort but on many vehicals, that is normal. Take a look at a friends car and see for yourself. Some cars have two fans. One is controlled by the temp sensor and the other comes on imediately when the AC is turned on. The reason it happens with the heat as well as the AC, is that when you turn the heat on, the AC compressor comes on in order to dry the hot air so that your windows don't fog. It sounds like crazy talk I know but like I said, check it out on a friends car and see for yourself.

95 grand am radiator fan only runs with AC on

Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
Good Luck and Have A Great Evening. rejakwilson
