SOURCE: Radiator fan doesn't always turn on when engine gets hot

check fuses #25 and #6 (both 30 amp)
the fan thermostat is on the left side of the rad.
turn the ignition on, and after pulling back the boot, short across the two terminal with a screwdriver.

if the fan runs, fan and wiring are both good.

if it only runs when thermoswitch is shorted like this, switch needs to be replaced (get the low temp switch to prevent overheating - your temp gauge will not go over the middle position even on the hottest days; also get a low temp thermostat,and ALWAYS get a Saab stat, not an after market!)

if the fan doesn't run when switch is shorted, check for valtage between green wire and ground at the switch.

Voltage indicates faulty fan, if no voltage then check the fan relay J in the main fuse box.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: The radiator cooling fan is always on ?

Is your AC on (AC compressor activated)? Try switching that off and see if it still runs.

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

My 2002 Ford Escape had a new radiator, new thermostat and a new radiator cap but still runs hot. Why?


Hi Nicole:
Now it gets interesting.
- What conditions are you running it under? Like really hot weather and towing a trailer with your pet elephant?
- How long since you had a tune-up? Retarded spark will make engine overheat and give lack of power?
- How do you know it's overheating? Maybe the guage or sender are defective.
- Is there the proper coolant in the engine? Straight water will overheat.
- Is the water pump functioning properly?
- Has a radiator hose collapsed?
- Will Rhett marry Charlotte?
Cheerfuls.

Why are my cooling fans for radiator running constantly?


The cooling fans are supposed to run any time the a/c is on in order to keep air flowing across the condenser. Your a/c will not work properly at idle if they quit.

Fan radiator not work in FORD ESCAPE 2009


there are two fans one must come on with the air con, the other when the engine thermostat opens when the engine is hot, most times not on when driving as air flow keeps the engine cool, If it does not come on when hot , check fuses and the fan temp censer.

My 2002 ford escape is overheating though we've changed the cracked head


Check your thermostat, could be locked/closed and won't let water circulate through the engine block. Also make sure your radiator fan is working, after you start you car and the engine reaches the proper temp, your radiator fan should kick in to cool the engine.

2002 ford escape temp guage says normal water will blow out of the degas bottle when engine reaches temp had to replace radiator trans cooler was leaking into radiator also replaced thermostat


Blown radiator hose? Might have blown a head gasket right there,which would continually send hot bubbles into the cooling system and degas bottle. If you see bubbles continually,it's a head gasket probably.
Might be the degas cap not releasing at 16 psi or your cooling system has air in it, OR your cooling fan is not actuating. Many things.
Also I have gotten 3 out of 5 bad thermostats from aftermarket stores. Get a Motorcraft thermostat. Did you replace with a NEW radiator?

The bearing may be failing in the fan motor causing the noise, there could be a restriction in the air flow thru the radiator too.

1997 dodge intrepid running hot!


check first if you are loosing water or cooling fluids on your radiator. There may be a leak or the radiator cap may no longer prevent the steam from escaping. check the radiator fans if they are turning. You can check the fan if it is working by removing the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. The fan should turn on by then.
