SOURCE: fan assembly and relays

You did something wrong, recheck those relays, bypass the relay at the relay socket, if the fans run then the relays may be wrong, are they factory relays?

SOURCE: Cooling fan not activating

On most vehicles, there is a thermostatic switch located on the bottom tank of the radiator that controls the electric fan. When AC is turned on, this switch is bypassed so its failure is 'cured.' These switches aren't terribly expensive nor difficult to replace but ensure you don't lose coolant on the ground while replacing the switch since the stuff is tasty and toxic to animals.
If you like to be able to research and or repair minor problems like this, you might consider buying the Haynes manual for your car. This will also let you approximately access what a repair might cost for labor if you can see the degree of difficulty yourself.

These are available at auto parts stores often cheaper than the online price. We have on for (and IN) each vehicle we own since they can be lifesavers now and then.

SOURCE: I have a '98 Olds Silhouette cooling fans work when A/C is on but will not come on even when temp is above normal operating temp if A/C is off

Just saw your second posting, so the temp is still above normal. Could the sensor
that controls the fan be not reading the heat properly ? The antifreeze/coolant
issue could still be relevant, so I will re-post that info. Tho.
Electric cooling fans will sometimes come on after a vehicle is parked,
(It actually heats up when stopped), but not when it is rolling down the road
because the movement is applying some cooling effect to the engine.
\
If the engine is not actually overheating, then the fans may be working
normally. Also, make sure your water/antifreeze mix is correct by using a
specific gravity tester. It is a tube with 4 or 5 balls, some of which will float
to give you a reading. Contrary to popular belief, More is not better when it
comes to antifreeze/coolant. It needs water to work properly. Too strong a
mix will actually make your vehicle run cold so that the temp sensors and
heater will not function properly. The engine will not achieve proper operating
temperature and may actually damage some of the components by running
it cold, affect timing, spark, etc. This could also cause the symptoms you
describe. The engine would not actually reach the proper heat threshold
until you added the extra demand of the AC heat transfer. But the first criteria
would be whether the engine is actually overheating / or in normal range .
It may be that the colder weather is allowing the sensors to come on a little
later, warming the engine and heater components a bit more than they would
in warmer weather. Would be good to know what the actual coolant temp is.
Could check that with a guage, and also check to see what temp thermostat
you are using. 195 degrees in the winter would be better, 165/180 or so in the
warmer months

SOURCE: electric fan

It sounds like a tcs temp controll or fan sensor ,, depending on the car it should be mounted on the bottom of the raditor with a long black plug connected to it

Cooling fan sensor 2010 aveo lt where is the location relay and fuse good fan runs only when jumped to battery


Has two relays fan hi an fan low . did you see that ? ECT sensor - engine coolant temp sensor is a input to the ECM - engine control module . The ECM monitors the coolant temp . when the temp reaches a set temp. the ECM will energize the fan on low speed by suppling a ground .If the sensor ECT was bad would have a check engine light on an a codes set. Your best bet would be to have a qualified repair shop check it out .Hook up a scan tool .

2010 Lincoln MKS Heated Seat on driver's side stopped working (Light in button turns off on its' own)


The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

Overheating


That is normal cooling fan operation. the fans are computer controlled and not turned on until the engine reaches the pre programmed temperature, that is about 185-195F

Why there are 02 fans near radiator? What are the purposes? One is working and one is not.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
You have 2 fans because one is the temperature controlled radiator fan that only runs when the engine water temp is above 160 deg. F. The water termperature controlled fan can run even with the ignition key OFF should the Engine water temp be too hot.
The 2nd fan is for your Air-Conditioner that should run when the cabin temp is set low enough for the Air-Conditioner compressor to run. This fan should run anytime the Air-Conditoner is switched on.
If your experiencing engine over heat problems when driving slow or sitting idle most likely the fan switch that is switched on by water temperature has failed. The fan switch controls a fan relay and if the relay fails the fan will not run. In this particular model there is a cooling fan module that controls the fan.

My 94 mazda 323 is boiling in the overflow tank. i have a ajustable thermate state that fix the promblem last time but now its doin it again. check by racq and they said that my fan is not kicking in.


I have had a similar problem.Check all of your Radiator and Heater hoses for leaks. The cooling system doesn't need to lose much coolant to create overheating problems. If you find no leaks -check that your bottom radiator hose isn't sucking flat and restricting coolant flow.
