Hi there,

When cold, remove plug of the temperature sensor usually found at the top of the radiator (but may be on thermostat area)

Check sensor with a meter - should be normally open (non conducting)

If faulty, fit a replacement. (undo cap of coolant system, then retighten, undo and replace sensor quickly to avoid too much coolant loss, then top up system.) You can drain the system, but sometimes causes airlocks and more problems.

SOURCE: 1989 camaro cooling fan failure, how do i fix it

When was the last time the thermostat was changed , the fans are only supposed to come on before the temp gets to high if the fans come on when you turn the air conditioner on then it is not the fan.

SOURCE: The radiator cooling fan is always on ?

Is your AC on (AC compressor activated)? Try switching that off and see if it still runs.

DTC P0480 - COOLING FAN CIRCUIT

Circuit Description

The cooling fan is controlled by PCM through the fan relay based on inputs from ECT sensor, IAT sensor, A/C selector switch, A/C refrigerant pressure switch and vehicle speed sensor. PCM controls cooling fan by grounding cooling fan control circuit which turns on cooling fan relay.

The fan relay will be commanded on when ECT reaches 223°F (106°C) or greater, A/C is requested or vehicle speed is less than 38 MPH. Cooling fan relay will also be commanded on regardless of vehicle speed when a DTC is set requesting cooling fan to be on, ECT is 304°F (151°C) or greater, or A/C refrigerant pressure is high. Cooling fan may also be commanded on when engine is not running, on certain conditions.

Conditions for setting DTC:

Battery voltage greater than 9.5 volts.

Cooling fan fault line detects a malfunction for 6 seconds.

1. Check the cooling system. Ensure coolant level and belt tension are correct. Adjust/repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 23). If no adjustment or repairs were required, go to next step.

2. Turn ignition on, with engine off. Using scan tool, check if cooling fan is operating with ECT at less than 209°F (98°C). If cooling fan is off, go to next step. If cooling fan is on, go to step 4).

3. Command cooling fan relay on. If cooling fan operates, go to step 23). If cooling fan does not operate, go to step 5).

4. Turn ignition off. Disconnect PCM harness connector. If cooling fan turns off, go to step 23). If cooling fan does not turn off, go to step 6).

5. Disconnect cooling fan relay harness connector. Using a test light connected to ground, probe battery feed circuits in relay harness connector. If test light illuminates on both terminals, go to step 7). If test light does not illuminate on both terminals, go to step .

6. Disconnect cooling fan relay harness connector. With test light connected to ground, probe battery feed circuit in relay harness connector. If test light illuminates, go to step 9). If test light does not illuminate, go to step 10).

7. Connect a jumper wire between cooling fan relay battery feed and cooling fan battery feed circuit. If cooling fan operates, go to step 11). If cooling fan does not operate, go to step 12).

8. Repair open in battery feed circuit. After repairs, go to step 23).

9. Repair short to voltage in cooling fan battery feed circuit. After repairs, go to step 23).

10. Connect test light battery voltage and probe cooling fan control circuit. If test light illuminates, go to step 13). If test light does not illuminate, go to step 21).

11. Connect test light to battery voltage and probe cooling fan control circuit. Using scan tool, command cooling fan on. If test light illuminates, go to step 14). If test light does not illuminate, go to step 15).

12. With jumper wire still connected, disconnect cooling fan harness connector. Using test light connected to ground, probe cooling fan battery feed circuit. If test light illuminates, go to step 16). If test light does not illuminate, go to step 17).

13. Repair short to ground in cooling fan control circuit. After repairs, go to step 23).

14. Check terminals to cooling fan relay. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 23). If terminals are okay, go to step 21).

15. Check cooling fan control circuit for open or poor connection. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 23). If circuit or connection is okay, go to step 22).

16. Connect test light to battery voltage and probe cooling fan ground circuit. If test light illuminates, go to step 1. If test light does not illuminate, go to step 19).

17. Repair open or poor connection in cooling fan ignition feed circuit. After repairs, go to step 23).

18. Check for poor connections at cooling fan harness connector. Repair as necessary. After repairs, go to step 23). If connections are okay, go to step 20).

19. Repair open or poor connection in cooling fan ground circuit. After repairs, go to step 23).

20. Replace cooling fan motor. After replacing cooling and motor, go step 23).

21. Replace cooling fan relay. After replacing relay, go to step 23).

22. Replace PCM. Program replacement PCM using required equipment. After replacing PCM, go to next step.

23. Turn ignition on, with engine off. Command cooling fan on. If cooling fan operates, system is okay. If cooling fan does not operate, repeat step 1).

Vauxhall astra 1.7 code fault ecn 189554 going into limp mode


P1895 = Limp home mode - Limited performance
P1481 = Fan Control Circuit 1 - Open Circuit
P1482 = Fan Control Circuit 2 - Open Circuit

it could be there is an issue with the cooling fans on the vehicle, and the ECU is going into limp mode to prevent the engine overheating, or because the coolant temp is getting too high.

First, check all fuses are present and not blown.

AC and Cooling Fans Not Working


Try installing a jumper across the N/O terminal at the relay socket. Temp sensor in the radiator or in the thermostat housing supplies the signal for the relay the other relay signal is supplied by A/C in on position. both fans will run continuous with A/C on. One fan runs intermittent relative to water temp. Be careful not to blow a head gasket. If you leave the jumpers in place, the fans will stop when the ignition is turned off, save the engine until you isolate the relay signal problem. then simply remove jumpers and reinstall the relays

Vauxhall astra 1.4 16v Idles fine but will not rev


Some cars with an ecu have a default setting whereby they run but only at idle. Go to your local Vauxhall dealer, look sweet and ask the service people if they can offer any idea, I mean the mechanics not the counter staff who generally don't know a handbrake from a halfshaft.
Or go on line and scour the astra owners helplines to see if its a common problem.
Don't spend a penny in a garage without checking all possible areas first. Like the other answer, it may just be a cable or electrical plug come off.

96 mitsubishi eclipse overheating while AC is on!


Try replacing your cooling fans since both fans are probably not coming on at the time the a/c is on. If your car uses a single fan, then it must have a hi and lo speed so probably the low works but the high doesn't. If you can barely hear the fan spin then it is probably working in the low speed position and you should check that.

The AC in my 1992 Honda Accord works. However, it blows hot air when I'm stopped at a light for too long. "Honda diagnosed the problem; said something about some type of thermostat that sticks,...


This indicates that the booster fan for AC has failed. If you look in back of the radiator, you will see 2 electric fans. One is for the engine cooling, and the other is a booster for when the AC is running to provide for extra air flow through radiator and AC condenser. (May also apply when engine overheats, but not sure of that) As car is moving along, then air is pushed through allowing AC to work. When standing still, and fan failed, then no air (or less air) passing over condenser grill. (Condenser is the one in front of the radiator) No cool.
While standing still with engine running, open the hood and look at fans. Watch your fingers. Fans can start at any time. One may be running or not. Now turn on AC and look at fans. Both should come on together. If not, then it may be either the fan, or the fan relay or fuse. Or even the wire.
Does the engine get extra hot while standing still running? Let it sit there for ten mins or so and see if main fan kicks on. Watch your temp gauge, you dont want it to boil over. When the temp reaches the level it is at normally, one fan should kick on. If temp keeps climbing and no fan, then that may be the same issue, likely the main relay.

The problem is in the loom in the steering wheel, it requires removal of the airbag and a new wheel loom to be fitted. The loom costs about £15.00 I think.
