    no running fan

  • brianxzc Mar 07, 2009

    yes, with the key to the ON POSITION without the engine running, the low, medium and high for the blower motor working fine,, the same with the engine running, thank you.

    when the fan running, the heater works fine.

    Ok.  With the key to the on position without the engine running, do you have low, medium and high for the blower motor, or is it stuck on one speed?  Try the same with the engine running.  Let me know your results.

    does the fan shut off or is there just no heat but a running fan?

My 1999 oldsmobile siloutte gauge sometimes says its overheating and fans wont come on till its at the red. my overheat indacator light does not come on and it has a good bulb and use to come on but not...


check for a bad thermostat or an air pocket in the cooling system...your fans should come on any time you turn on the air conditioning....check to see that both fans are coming on by doing this....trapped air is common because of the odd configuration of the cooling system...turn on all heaters and place fans on high...warm up the engine then add distilled water or dexcool to your engine coolant canister....rev a few times to pump coolant into heater cores.....good luck and be cautious when working on your engine please...

Engine won't turn over all lights on dash work. when key left in on position whirring noise comes from left side of engine.


The noise may be from the heater fan left on. Have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell.

Unplug the fan on sensor. It should have one green wire and one black wire. Use a paper clip and jump the two wires. Turn the key to the run position, the engine does not need to be running. Does the fan come on? If not check the green wire for 12 volts and the black wire for ground. If there is no ground than run a new ground wire. If the is no power check the heater/air conditioning fuse in the under dash fuse block. If there is power and ground make sure both the cooling fan fuses are good and both the cooling fan relays are good.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be


The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

1993 miata 5 speed engine will not turn over at all, enngine not seized battery new, starter new, lights good, but get nothing when key is turned


What you state is true invest in a new electrical ignition switch that runs off the key cylinder to run power to the starters solenoid. When they go bad the car is totally dead sometimes such as yours. Some will go bad to the starter although other functions may work such as the radio, heater fan, and so on. If your headlights and brake lights work the switch is what you need for the ignition

Heater fan quit working


Horn fuse should be labeled on the fuse block. If it's not, easiest way to check is to just check them all. Use a test light and probe the back side of each fuse on both ends, till you find one that only has power on one side. Horn works with key off but I generally check with key on. Also, you have a horn relay (should be in the power distribution center (basically another larger fuse box, usually on the right fender under the hood. If all else fails, run a "hot" wire right to the horn & make sure it works. Horn "switch" is actualliy part of the signal mechanism and internal parts within the steering column...though these sometimes develop dead spots, it's least likely that it is the source of your problem.

Geo tracker lights and radio not working


power loss.
any good car elect. tech find this pronto.
just takes a volt meter to find the voltage drop point.

top fails:
1: corroded fuse box on right front finder (under fuse box)
2: did you say it kills motor too. cant figure above.

what about heater fan, it uses tons of current.
as does HL followed by tails.

20amps, 15amps and 5amps respectively

you have resistance some where.
and load , kills the voltage .

for me.
i'd:
check battery voltage , when it dims out.
then of ok 12.5v is ok key on,not started.
then check voltages at a right fender , fuse panel
all points there, 12.5vdc , same as battery v.
if OK
then
check voltage at the fuse above right knee
with load full, hl, fan, brakes, just key on.

now you know what circuit is fail ing by now.

report back with this facts.
