If the fans are not running, the problem is most likely the relay. You can test relay with an ohmmeter. If fuses are ok, than the fan motor will need to be replaced.

Engine fans dont work


a few things to check here. You need to find the short it could be anywhere between your fuse and the motor for the fan (fans) itself. There is a temperature sensor that controls the fan it may or may not be separate from the one that displays the temp of your coolant on your instrument cluster.

My Caravan radiator fans run constantly and the temp gage never moves off "cold". The engine is not overheating. I have replaced the temp sensor and the thermostat. No change.


The temperature sensor may be controlling the fan via a relay; these can fail by welding the contacts together remaining permanently 'on.'
Locate the fuse (and possibly relay) box, check inside the cover for a layout that identifies which fuse or relay controls the fan; they are often on their own fuse and definitely on their own relay.

The 2 AC fsnd turns on when the Engine temperarure hot. It receives the signal from ECU throught the Engin temperature sensor ( Coolant). Your case happens since the Engine Temp sensor went bad. At beginning the temp sensor can not produce any resistance just like open then ECU thinking engine hot turns on the Fan. When your engine ia about 85, it is a normal temp then the sensor could produce some resistance matching the look up tabel for the ECU, then the ECU turn off the Fan. Some pepople has it run all the way since the wire contact to the sensor was off. Replace the Engin Temp sensor to take care of the problem.
You have 2 temp sensors on top engine, one for your temp read out, one for the fan purpose. If you don't know which one, wait for your temp at 85 and the fan is stopping, then unplug one, imediately the fan goes on, that the one. Good luck.

2003 malibu cooling fans don't work. I have replace the relay and the temp sensor and still nothing. When ever I disconnect the temp sensor the fans come on and work normally, but later in the day I see...


okay pull the temp sensor connector ( disconnect it) and turn car on if the fans run then its the temp sensor.... part # wt3000.
Theres also 3 relays that turn the fans on in the fuse box cooling mode fan relay @15 which is part number 7234. and cooling one # 1 which is 3604, and cooling fan #2 which is 7236.
I have the same car...give me a fan clutch cooling system anyway of the week. simple and efective no problems.

95 grand am radiator fan only runs with AC on


Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
Good Luck and Have A Great Evening. rejakwilson

Radiator fan on my 1994 toyota camry


there are actually 3 temp sensors. 1 is on the top of the engine that goes to temp gauge in dash has 1 wire. next to it is a 3 wire sensor for engine control and choke. on the bottom of the radiator next to the hose is a 2 wire sensor. loosen all 3 but leave connected. get engine hot past halfway point on dash gauge. with ac off disconnect 1 sensor at time. start with 2 wire under radiator. it takes the most abuse. fan will come on when you disconnect broken sensor. 2sensor must agree for fan to stay on till engine cools when turned off. note this is solution i used after verifying fuses, fuseable links and relays worked.WOO HOO! make sure you check both the fuse box under hood and fuse boxleft side of steering wheel my ECU fuse was inside my bros was outside.ECU B on my car goes to nothing and is under hood. Had it confused with ECU on wiring diagram.DOH!

Radiator fan


You should check the 30 amp "RDI" fuse and the 7.5 ECU-IG fuse. Both fuses are critical to the operation of the fan system. The RDI fuse sends power to the fan #1 relay. The A/C amplifier turns on power to the fan #1 relay, this is why your fan works on A/C.

Now, with no cooling fan under "normal conditions" (A/C off), you need to have a good fan #2 relay, and a good water temp switch. This switch is on the engine, near the thermostat housing (I think); with a single plug, with a white with a blue trace wire going to it. Remove this wire from the sender, and jump it to ground (anywhere on the metal of the engine) with the key on (engine OFF). If the fan starts, you need a new water temp sending unit. If not, then consider a new fan #2 relay. This system is pretty simple.
