Well you should first hard wire the non working fan to the battery to see if it is ok, then I would check the engine coolant temperature sensor, it is the sensor that tells the computer to turn the radiator fan on

1997 accord lx. Overheating at idle but not when moving. I hear cooling fan come on after I turn off ignition, What can it be?Should fan come on when I turn on AC?

fan not running full speed

dirt and junk packed in the radiator. up front, both if A/C

sure the fan must come on overheated. at all times.

the FSM covers the tests for that, ever seen any FSM>????

read the book or look on

if the fan works, and the rad fins are not packed full of junk, then the RAD tubes in side are clogged, (ask for simple $20 tool that tests this)

all cars overheat , if the fan fails.

no moving means there is no air, no air and the RAD is just a useless brick. the air must flow.

it is really just a heat exhanger, coolant > air.

is the AF at 50% , usning the $2 Prestone test tool?

AF= antifreeze coolant.

97 accord lx overheats unless ac is on

If the cooling fans are not coming on when the vehicle is overheating try this.

Look for the coolant temp switch B. it will be located near the thermostat housing on the back side of the passenger side of the engine (follow the lower hose to the engine). It will have a white with green wire and a black wire. Unplug it, turn the key to the run position, the engine does not need to be running. ground the white with green wire. if the fans come on replace the coolant temp switch B sensor.

Could a faulty IAT sensor on a Honda Accord LX 1997 cause over-hearting?

A faulty Intake Air Temperature sensor would not cause overheating. Have your cooling fans, fan relay, thermostat, and cooling fan switch checked. These are possible causes and are known to cause this problem on these models.

I own a 1995 honda accord and its overheating eaven with the fas direct

Check your plastic surge tank under the hood to make sure radiator is full. Also, your radiator fan is thermostatically controlled and is a weak point. Check to see if the fan is running when you are overheating. If not that is the problem.

Cooling fans dont operate when engine is on

faulty temperature sensor. It's near where the thermostat lives in the motor. In an emergency you can wire the + side of the fan to the accessory panel, just know that the fan will run the entire time the car is on.
