Yes they are using the same fuse.It could be that you have a thermostat issue or head gasket problem.Over heating rapidly is not usualy a thermo fan problem.Could you provide a little more info?Have you done any tests to determine what the actual fault is?

    Could be the thermal temp switch as it sounds like its been over heated and that can destroy them quite quickly,usualy located at the bottom of the radiator .The thermal temp switch tells the radiator fans to turn on and off based on temp.check wether you have power into and when hot out of that switch.Have you unplugged the fans and used a donor wire from the battery to the plug to see if the fans are ok?Make sure to earth and join the right wires.Let me know how you go with it

Cooling fan keeps blowing a fuse on my 2000 maxima #1 fan. #2 fan works when a/c is turned on


It's is very possible. You may be correct however don't dismiss the wiring. The wiring may intermittently short with movement/vibration and cause fuse to blow but most likely you are correct in thinking that your fan needs replacement.

I have a 2003 jaguar x type 2.5 the cooling fans not working and over heats


cooling systems are the same for all vehicles, depending on years ,, in your case all you have is a fan, relay, and sensor, controlled by a circuit with a fuse, so , always check fuses first, if bad replace,, if not, unplug the fan at the connector,, use a jumper wire to supply the fan with 12 volts direct from the battery ,, if it starts, its not the fan, if it doesn't the fan needs replacing, if that checked out to be good,, backtrack to the fan relay, ( usually the problem) locate it in the under the hood fuse box, it will be listed on the tag on the underside of the fuse box cover ( or in the owners manual itself) you should have a couple of the same relay in this box,, ( Jaguar uses the same relay for a number of items) locate the one for the fan, and switch it out for one that runs a system you know is working, start the vehicle,, and let it run until the thermostat opens,, watch the temp gauge don't let it move up to high. soon after , the fan should start , if by now the system isn't working, its going to normally be a short in that circuit, and would have to looked at by a trained professional with knowledge in electrical circuits

Mini Cooper 2002 overheated, fan fuse keeps blowing


The most common cause for the cooling fan fuse to blow is a bad cooling fan motor. The failng motor will draw an excessive amount of current which actually heats up the fuse and melts it. Now if your fuse is blowing the instant the cooling fan(s) turn on, then that could be a "dead short". either inside the cooling fan motor or in the wiring going to it. Follow and inspect the wiring leading to the cooling fan motor. Check for any broken, cracked or burnt wires. If you don't see any of that, then you'll probably need a new motor. If you think you can tackle the job, most auto parts stores sell generic replacement cooling fan motors much less than you would pay at the dealership.
WARNING! - some cooling fan motors are easy to get to, and others are very difficult. Study yours carefully and then decide if you want to tackle the job before you start tearing it apart.

I have a 2002 Buick Century which overheats when the car is not moving. I found out the cooling fans do not work with or without the AC on. I checked the 15 amy fuse listed for the fans and it was blown. I...


A blown fuse usually results from a circiut overload or short. First check wiring from fans for any breaks, rips or tears in wiring. Next with the engine off and cooled down, see if the fans will spin freely if you spin it. If they don't spin then they have siezed and the circuit is getting too hot. If they do spin then it is likely you have a short in the wiring.

'06 VW Polo cooling fan not working - fuse inside fine - fuse on top of battery (5) blown - put in new one and blown again - need bigger size or what?


Don't put in a bigger size. If it blew once, it means something inside the fan has failed. Take a look for any obvious shorts in the wires: Failing that, Take out the fan, and see if it works. Most likely the short is right at the connector, where it vibrates out the most.

Over heats fan doesn't seem to be working Is there a fuse for the fan to turn?


Yes it has a fuse for the fan but the failure is likely the cooling fan relay. It is mounted on the frame by the radiator under the air box.

Range rover have no heat or ac


First thing I would do is check your fuses. If all of your fuses are intact, I would make the assumption that it must be the control assembly itself (your actual dash control unit) since to my knowledge it is the only point where the two exclusive systems (heating and AC) are integrated with each other, aside from sharing the duct and to some extent, the electrical system. Being that neither the heating NOR cooling system will work, it seems the only common denominator.

If you have blown fuse(s), remember that fuses almost never blow for no reason (wierd things DO happen on occasion!), and this is usually just a symptom of a deeper issue, such as a short or fault in your electrical system such as your fans, or other components, drawing too much current. Locked fan rotors will blow fuses, for example. Having to replace the fuse again in short order would indeed indicate the need to troubleshoot further.

Good luck!
