This is caused by the blower motor speed control resistor module being defective, it is located just to the side of the blower motor under the pass side dash, it is held to the outside of the airduct by a couple of screw.

    u did not say the engine cooling fan, so I was handicapped right away, the fan issue is most often the ac/heater fan. the cooling fan u refer to is operated by a relay, replace it. Please change the rating, the mistake was your lack of all the correct information.

My 2006 VW Jetta is making loud, screaming/screeching, sound from the passenger side-front, behind the the dash/glove box, between the engine and wheel.

I would like to think it is the electric fan behind the radiator that is screeching. When you stop the car, everything should stop, but that fan. That fan is supposed to cool the radiator, even after the engine is off and the car stops. It would not be so bad, because it does not run as much, in cold weather, but in hot weather, it should start sooner and run longer.
I needs to be replaced.
Be blessed.

Hi, i have a 2001 grand jeep cherokee 6 cylinder larado, the car is not running hot, the fan won't stop running, i was told to disconnect the battery cable which i did so do i need a new fan?

you probably have a bad solid state fan relay. This is a very common problem with jeeps. You'll love where they put this one. It is located under the passenger side headlamp assembly, but wait it gets better. The entire front headlamp grill support needs to be removed in order to gain access to the relay. The good thing is there is a shortcut that involves cutting a small hole in the headlamp/grill support under the passenger side headlamp assembly. I have a photo that shows where to make the hole and can post it if your interested in trying to tackle this yourself.

My 2002 Hyundai Elantra gets hot when sitting in traffic. So far I have checked all the fuses and they are good, the coolant level is normal, and both fans are plugged in. Even when the car is getting...

Both fans don't necessarily have to start and stop together but you do need both of them to adequately cool the engine. If you plugged the harness from the drivers side fan into the passenger side fan and it worked then I think you've ruled out any electrical problems with the wiring. It's probably 1 of 2 things. Either the fan has gone out, or the temperature sensor has gone bad. I would start with the temperature sensor first. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. The sensor just threads into the radiator, usually at the bottom.

Good Luck!

Mu 2002 Yukon XL 1500 SLT defrost fan runs all of the time, including when the car is turned off and the key is removed.

You have a faulty blower motor resistor and wiring harness. If you pull the fuse for the HVAC blower thats in the fuse panel under the hood, that will stop the blower and keep it from killing the battery.
The blower motor resistor is under the dash on the passenger side. Remove the plastic hush cover under the dash and you'll see the resistor and the wiring harness assembly attatched to the duct just next to the blower motor. It sits right above where the passengers feet would be.
The dealer has upgraded the wiring and they will sell you a harness kit along with a new resistor. this is a very common problem and is relatively easy to fix. Use a bit of dielectric grease on the plug connections and when you splice the new harness in to avoid any future corosion of the connections.

Water was leaking inside on passengers side, now

HVAC drain tube was blocked and condensation could not drain to the outside of the vehicle

as a result the water pooled inside the HVAC case leaking on the inside and killing your blower motor and probably blower motor resistor

clear the drain, replace the blower and resistor and you'll be back in business

Passenger side radiator cooling fan stopped working

I found that for some reason if you start your car and then remove and reinstall the hi and low relays that the fans work. I have done this numerous times on my 1995 lhs. I thought that my fans were defective until by chance checked the relays which engine was running.

Buick Century 2001 blower motor

Your blower resistor is bad. It is mounted under the passenger side dash behind and to the left of the blower motor. These things burn out short out causing the fan to run constantly and then they just fry and shut down the fan. It is a hard little ****** to get to and you need 1/4 inch ratchet, 6 inch extension a 1/4 inch universal joint and a 5 mm shallow socket and lots of patients. LOL

the fastest way to fix that problem is to find the wires to the fan cut the run them straoght to your battery and install a toggle switch so when u get out u can kill the power and cut the fan off it might sound crazy but it works i just had the same problem and had to do the same thing
