Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

2003 malibu cooling fans don't work. I have replace the relay and the temp sensor and still nothing. When ever I disconnect the temp sensor the fans come on and work normally, but later in the day I see the temp in the instrument panel start to go up and I check the fans and they are not turning. I have check all fuses and they seem to be good. What can this be or what do I check? Thanks, Paul

Okay pull the temp sensor connector ( disconnect it) and turn car on if the fans run then its the temp sensor.... part # wt3000.
Theres also 3 relays that turn the fans on in the fuse box cooling mode fan relay @15 which is part number 7234. and cooling one # 1 which is 3604, and cooling fan #2 which is 7236.
I have the same car...give me a fan clutch cooling system anyway of the week. simple and efective no problems.

If it is a very loud noise, then it may be the window regulator. This is the assembly that the motor and glass bolt to. The door panel would have to come off to inspect.

SOURCE: 2003 malibu will turn over but wont start.instrument cluster inop

Is the theftlock light lit up on the dash? It it is you may have a problem with the GM manufacturer theftlock device. The Theftlock system prevents the vehicle from being started without its own key and shuts of the fuel injectors which is typically why it turns over but won't start. It's quite problematic on mine and locks the car so you have to replace the cylinder.

If the "Theft System" light is flashing on in the dash sit in the car with the key in the "On" position. When the light stops flashing it will light solid for a second then go out. Open and close the driver side door, turn the car off, turn and start the car. This resets the theft lock and I kid you not it works.

Cooling fans won't come on in my 97 Chevy malibu


The PCM controls that activation of the cooling fans. I uses three relays to do this. The configuration of the relays is such that failure of any one of them should not result in total fan failure (one or both would still operate). Try this - with the engine running, turn on the A/C. If the fans work, then your problem is that the coolant temp sensor is not telling the PCM the coolant temperature properly. If they still don't work, then, although it doesn't seem likely, I would have the COOLING FAN RELAY, COOLING FAN RELAY 1, and MODE CONTROL RELAY checked. Reason being that the only other possibilities are the PCM and the circuit wiring itself.

1999 Malibu Cooling fans don't come on. Country driving is fine. City driving and a few stop lights and it over heats. Temp Gauge works fine. If I un plug the sensor then fans come on but Tranny and Engine...


country driving at high speeds keep engine air cooled. but in city there is not much air to cool the engine. check the sensor for the fans. relay for fans must be ok, cause you said if you disconnect sensor then fans run. replace fan sensor. also make sure there is a proper amount of coolant in system. (do this first).

99 chev malibu,cooling fans dont come on


make sure it is full of coolant, next check for a bad fan relay, to see if fans are ok! run a wire from positve post on battery to positive on fan motor, ground other side if need be. if fans do not work they are bad, if they do work, check relay to fan and coolant tempurature sensor if needed.

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.
