SOURCE: 2002 corolla radiator fans keep running

Hello there:
what you are going to have to do is have the temperature sensor for the fan checked and possibly changed if it not working properly this fan will continue to run and run and run

SOURCE: cooling fan for acura tl 2000 does not work

If you can locate the temperature switch, looks like a large bolt head with 2 wires on it, bridge the wires on it, and this should make the fan work. If the fan works then this switch is faulty. If the fan doesn't then it could be the fuse, or a broken wire.
The fan switch is either on the radiator or on the thermostat housing.
If you can get to it easy, short across with a screwdriver.

What causes both cooling fans to not run?


Hi Naomi , there is a lot involved in the control of the cooling fans on your vehicle ! There are three fuse's , three relays an a fan control unit !
1. radiator fan main relay , located in underhood relay box A
2.condenser fan relay , located in underhood relay box A
3.radiator fan relay , located in underhood relay box C
4.Cooling fan fuse # 47 20amp. underhood fuse / relay box
5.condenser fan fuse # 50 20amp in underhood fuse / relay box.
Any one of these could cause them to not work, rather then just replacing parts an wasting money you should take it to the repair shop !

Why won't the fan motor shut off on my 1991 acura legend?


Hey chandralebea,

Try first by replacing the cooling fan engine temp sensor switch, as this may be the cause.



Good Luck

Car Overheating


Having to use the heater as a auxiliary cooling source simple tells use the cooling system needs a little help.
1. make sure the AC and Radiator coils are not plugged on the outside
2. let the car idle until normal operation temp is achieved, see if the cooling fan comes on
a. if not the fan is at fault
b. the fan sending unit is at fault
c. or dirty or broken wires

Have a 1987 acura integra. if I don't keep the heater running, the car temp will escalate quickly. Mostly occurs at short trips around town where I don't have the heater on.


Check that the cooling fan is operating properly, If not repair it. The heater is acting as a cooling radiator. The main engine radiator could well be blocked. You can reverse flow the radiator after adding a special cleaner from an auto shop but if it overheats quickly it will most likerly need stripping and rodding out properly. Have the main radiator removed and rodded ( cleaned ) out at a radiator shop.

The fan on my 96 acura tl comes after i cut the car off and runs loudly


The fan on a 1996 Acura RL will normally run for a short period after the engine is shut off if the temperature sensor determines the engine is too hot. However, if it is running constantly and not shutting off after you shut off your engine, then you will need to replace the fan relay. It is most likely stuck in a closed position. If your fan does shut off after running for a period of time when you shut off the engine but you have a noisy fan, then most likey the fan bearings are wearing out and it is more cost-effective to replace the whole fan. Thanks for using Fixya.

96 Acura RL overheating.


have you changed the thermostat? located at upper hose opposite radiator end in the gooseneck (usually 2 screws) make sure you buy a gasket or gasket making compound if changing. most overheats occur due to stuck thermostat (doesn't open to cool) you could pull tstat out for temp fix but it wouldn't heat well in colder weather
