Possible solution: Check the wiring harnass goinig to the cooling fan. It may be damaged and shorting out against the radiator or other grounded metal surface.

Pontiac montana 2003 two radiator fans both not wind


Yes, or there is a short in the fans wiring. Test the fans separately. There are four terminals in the connector--two for each fan.

You have a short somewhere causing a severe power draw. When you say cooling fan do you mean the radiator fan or AC blower fan ?

Fan with burn smell when engine switched off


It is normal for the fan to run for a short while (few minutes) after turning off the car to allow the heat in the radiator to dissipate. The time may be dependent on the coolant temperature or it could just be a fixed time (i.e. so many minutes). The burning smell could be a loose belt, but I suspect the radiator fan is electrical and not belt-driven. I think the burning smell could be oil from a leaking gasket. The oil drips onto the hot engine and voila... burnt oil. Not sure what you mean by new (new to you or 2013-14 model), but new cars should not have any leaking fluids. A stuck break caliper could aslo produce a burning smell.

Pajero overheating


It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

How do you fix radiator fans


First go to an auto parts store that offers free scans to see if any codes are set.

The fan is controlled by the computer which gets inputs from sensors. Could be a bad sensor or a wiring problem.

Has any work been done recently?

Engine overheating when AC is on, Water Pump is working, Thermostat is working, Coolant is Good, Burning Smell when AC is turned on for a short moment but not a belt burning Only overheats when sitting...


Your thermostat might be sticking which rarely happens. You should also check your fan and belts from the fan. Located behind the radiator. Hope this helps!!

How do I change a thermostat in 2003 taurus?


Hi,
The thermostat is located in a housing on your engine that the top radiator hose connects to... but it isn't tied to your heater problem. The thermostat restricts coolant flow until the engine warms up, but doesn't control the car heater.
You may have a fuse issue if the fan isn't blowing any air. That's an easy check and fix. Autozone might check it for you.
I hope this helps... Good luck.
