One of those fans may only be powered during AC operation, the other should be controlled by a thermostatic switch often mounted on the bottom tank of the radiator and may not employ a relay at all.

The fuse for radiator fan blows off whenever it is replaced on audi A4 2002


I would suggest that the electric fan motor is shorted out, unplug the motor and see if the short goes away, if it does replace the fan motor.

Where is the thremo relay switch located on a 2003 3.0 audi A4. my problem is the radiator fans won't shut off and have been told this may be the problem


Sounds like your on the right track. The thermal switch closes when the temp reaches a certain temp and this allows power to the fans to draw more cool air into the engine bay. I would start there or you may have a short on that circuit also allowing the power to go to the fans continuously.

99 honda civic lx, my fans are'nt turning? Could this be a fuse??


Do you mean radiator fans or heater fans?

If radiator fans, they don't work all the time, but only when it gets too hot. When the car is not moving, they will usually go on eventually. But in normal speeds, you don't need fans.

If there is a problem, it is usually the relay, but could be the ground, one of two fuses, or the temperature sensor. The main fuse is a big one, because they draw more electricity then anything else. The switch is usually in the radiator, and powers the relay primary from a small fuse. The relay secondary then goes from the large fuse to the fan, and back through ground.

Let me know if you mean the heater fan.

Electric fan


Which fan are you referring to, the electric fans for the cooling system, or the air blower fan inside the car as part of the climate control?

Electric radiator fan won't come on when engine gets hot


I had the same problem. Check the fans relay behind the front grill, in front of the radiator, more accesible if you take the headlight (driver's side) out.
