So if you tried another relay & they work, you need a new relay, right?

Radiator fan not working


Your Fan Control Module or FMC is the long black relay located underneath your coolant bulb, It is mounted onto a bracket on the drivers side shock tower, to test your fans you can take off the temp sensor located on the drivers side tank on your radiator, jump the terminals and the fan should come on in low speed, turn your ignition to the on position and jump them and it should turn onto high speed.
The best solution is to wire the fan to a 12v switched power source on high speed.

What Switch or control makes the radiater fan come on? and need the diagram for the radiator control switch, 1993 saturn sl2.


Ok. The way your system is set up,you have a fan switch located in the engine block,usually near the top.That fan swtich sends the voltage to the fan motor or to a fan relay then to the motor.You can jump the fan motor directly to make sure the motor itself is not burned out by unplugging the motor and running a jumper wire from your battery pos terminal to the terminals on the fan motor itself..If you have checked the motor and it does work,then the easiest thing to do is simply replace the fan switch.You should have a Coolant temp switch and a radiator fan switch and possibly and Radiator fan relay.I would try the radiator switch first,then replace the relay.The coolant temp sensor is for the computer and usually doesnt tie into the radiator fan switch.try that and repost.Good luck

My coolent fans on my 1996 firebird are not working. we can get the fans to work by jumping them after removing them from the car. we do not think it is the relay switch. suggestions?


The fans run by a thermal switch separate from the temp guage. It is normally located on the rad. It has probably stopped working. Look around on the inside of the rad tanks and see if you can find a set if wires coming off a plug-in. It is likely near the bottom of the rad tank. Make sure you have a bucket handy when you pull it out, you will lose some coolant. Hope this helps.

Jump air compressor ac works replace relays same issue HONDA


the compressor may be low on freopn but, the fan problem is most likely the fan motor as it is the low temp fan and will run more often than both fans...to test see if you can switch the fan plugin to the other fan watch carefully that it does not get too hot as the second fan is a safety fan that works as high temp or when using the A\C

1996 Pontiac Firebird is running hot


You can do the following with a cold car.

The switch for the electric fan is in the radiator (it responds to the temperature of the water in the radiator, not the temperature of the water in the engine). With the engine running, if the switch has 2 wire on it, pull those two wires and briefly touch them together. If it has only 1 wire, tough that wire to ground. The fan should come on. If it does, the problem is the switch. If not, then the relay or the fan, or the fan's fuse is to blame.

Cooling fan problem on 1992 pontica firebird


The cooling fan switch is built into the ECM. The ECM tells the fan to turn on at about 220 degrees. If you have a bad coolant temp sensor you might have trouble there. Usualy I find the relay or fan motor to be the problem. In some cases the ECM or CTS is the problem. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Blower working on top 2 settings but no air comeing from vents


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The possible causes due to which the blower is not working normally are fuse, blower resistor or a bad blower motor. Test the voltage at the blower with a test light. Please check the motor relay switch fuse under the dashboard. Use a multi meter to measure ohms for continuity. If these are fine, bypass the blower motor relay switch to make sure blower motor is running fine. Motor relay switch is right next to radiator fan relay switch under the hood. Pull out the blower motor relay switch to see 4 female pin holes. Test the relay switch using a 12 volts power source and a multi meter to measure continuity. If fan works after jumping the pin holes, then blower motor is fine but relay switch may be faulty. You may also need to replace the blower motor resistor. If still the problem persists, then you need to replace the blower motor.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

1997 V6 3.8L Firebird - Low A/C


If the compressor is not cycling on its own the system is either very low or empty, meaning there is a leak somewhere. The leak needs to be repairedd and the system vacuumed and recharged.
