You have to check the temp sensor located somewhere on the radiator. this sensor senses when the fluid is hot enough to turn the fan on. There may be a loose or disconnected going to this part. If not check the fuses , then finall you may have to replace the sensor. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks

2004 honda civic...smell antifreeze ...cooling fans will not turn on

the main problem would be your radiator fans don't turn on. This would cause pressure to build in your radiator causing coolant to flow over into the coolant reservoir. sometimes you might see coolant on the floor your temp gauge should also read much higher than normal. you can connect your fans directly to your battery and drive the vehicle and see if problem still exists. if not then thermo switch etc would need to be checked.

Car won't start after starting it with coolant temp sensor disconnected

Try a boost first before taking things apart,sound like low voltage.
Now about the fans.Sometimes it's easier (if the fans will work with voltage applied) just to install a relay and fire it off the switched power wire at the A/C compressor.Use this relay supply to voltage to the fans when the compressor runs.Want fans when not using A/C?Run a "in rad hose" temp switch and run that wire to the same relay to run fans when temp rises.Think after market hot rod stuff and keep it easy and simple,

Coolant fan not coming on....sensor unit problem??

its either the sensor or the relay,, but make sure the fan actually works first ,, use jumper wires to supply the fan voltage direct from the battery to make sure it works, just clip them on the connector that goes to the fan, don't hook them up to the part that leads away from the fan.

The coolant fan stopped running

could be the fan motor or the temp switch connect the fan to the batt directly to test the motor if that works then go to the parts store and ask for the temp switch

My radiator fan is not working and I cannot find any of the relay fuses I have seen in other cars for this type of problem.

Follow the wiring back from the fan motor, the relay is often found at about the height of the bottom of the radiator on the inner fender. Check that connection is clean and free of corrosion. Check that the fan works by taking two trailing wires directly from the bettery terminals and connecting then to the fan motor directly. Use a voltmeter and check the voltage at the relay when engine is cold and shortly after the radiator top hose from the engine becomes hot (the coolant sensor should have signalled for the fan to switch on at this time). No voltage indicates a break in the circuit or faulty sensor. Voltage but no fan indicates faulty relay

You have to check the main relay fan fuse relay and disconnect the fan and try it directly to make sure the fan motor is fine if all this is well into the cavity where the thermostat is a thermal switch that sends it relay the signal to the fan you can disconnect and the fan has to start working if this works the problem is you have the thermal switch.

Cooling fan is not working

If you have not checked it yet, you can do so, around the lower right corner of the fan motor is the electrical connection. Us 2 jumper wires and connect directly to the hot and neg post of the battery, if the fan does not work, replace the fan motor. do this for both sides, this should give you which direction you will need to go. If the motor is good, check the fuses (the one in the engine compartment). the coolant temperature switch, the radiator relay, and lastly the condenser fan relay. I hope this helps you, Good Luck!

1986 buick lesabre 3.0 L engine coolant sensor .

Its just a relay or the computer or sensor, check a manual at an auto parts store, they can look it up. but to fix it quick, just run a new power and ground direct to the fan, so it runs when you turn the engine on, I drove My 90'Olds cutlass like that for years.

2005 Honda accord-air conditioner not working good and car overheating

Your car probably has two fans at the radiator, one is for the coolant and the other is for the a/c condenser. Find out which one stays on after you turn off your car after a normal trip, this fan is good. Check the fan that did not run, you may have to connect 12v directly to the connector of the non working fan, if it won't run with a direct connection, the fan motor is bad, if the fan does run, then find the fan switch and test or replace it, you can find information on testing a the site.

On my 2001 Focus Zetec 2.0L, the radiator fan only worked with the air conditioning turned on (as in no low speed - engine would overheat while idling or in traffic, but was fine as long as the A/C was on). The fix was to replace the radiator fan resistor assembly located in the fan shroud between the fans.
