Problem sounds like either the thermoswitch in the radiator or the cooling fan relay under the dash... test by removing wires from thermoswitch and test for continuity at the terminals with a meter (radiator cold)... if you have continuity the switch is bad... if not it's the relay (fused closed... replace it)... Hope this helps...;-)

And never stops?
the fan at the right from where you sit in the car or stand in front of it?

Cause if it runs after you turn off the engine and stops after say 5-10 minutes, just idle your engine for a minute after parking, to have it cool down and just then "kill" it. (if it's on your right when you stand opposite the car)

SOURCE: The electric radiator cooling fan will not turn off

As long as the fan eventually shuts off this isn't a problem,the fan will continue to run for a bit after the car is turned off,once it reaches a set temprature it will turn off.

Connection between Climate CTRL and the Radiator Fan?


the cooling fan is designed to come on when the setting is in defrost or A/C mode . the a/c compressor is set up to come on in the winter to help keep the seals flexible by running and cooling fans run to help provide air across the condenser and radiator to cool engine water and makes a/c cold in summer time use . cooling fan will cycle as it reads data from related sensors. this is a normal condition with your car

Radiator fans


I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

Why would the car be overheating if the coolant reservoir is full?


A. Your thermostat is bad
B. Your cooling fans are not operating correctly
C. Your radiator is dirty enough to prevent good airflow from front to rear
Try checking C first wash the radiator out from the engine side with a high pressure hose, this will take about 10 minutes to do a good job, the local car wash is a great place to do this

Do your cooling fans come on? At any time? You should be able to hear them run with the hood open

If these 2 don't solve the issue it is time to change the thermostat

Both radiator cooling fans won't turn on vehicle overheats


The fans come on only when hot or the AC is on. There are many fuses that have to be good for it to work. The fan relay should have 2 pins hot with the key on, The other 2 should be ground. with the key off one should be hot and the other can then be ground the other pins that are ground one of them is the fan. the other becomes ground when the computer turns the fans on. If you don't have a pin thats hot at the relay all the time then theres a blown fuse or even the power wire from the battery at the battery

The cooling fan on the driver side of the radiator does not work i just put a new one where the water hose side is and now it runs but the other one does not. I put one new thermostat and one new fan...


One of the fans is for your radiator and the other is your condenser fan (for your air conditioning). The condenser fan starts at a higher temp than your radiator fan.
To test the condenser fan (the one on the right side, facing the car) unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use jumper wires to connect the fan directly to the battery. If it runs, check the fuses (engine compartment far upper left as you face the car), then the relay (right front corner of the engine compartment as you face it). The radiator fan typically engages between 189 and 199 degrees, but the condenser fan typically engages between 217 and 232 degrees. In other words they don't necessarily run at the same time. First of all, try letting the car run until the engine is warm WITH the ac running. If the condenser far does not run, then go through the checking procedure.
I hope this gets you started on a fix.

1991 honda left side radiator fans runs longer than right side after engine turned off, solution?


hey, i responded to your other posting, you are correct that one fan is for a/c, one for regular engine cooling, it is normal for the radiator fan to run for 2 minutes after car is shut off. I believe the a/c fan only runs when a/c is on, so I don't believe it's a problem, unless it isn't running at all. Is the car running hot or overheating? If not, it sounds normal.

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.


I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
