Question about 2008 Ford Escape
Check the pins in the connectors and ensure that they are making good tight contact. You may have to move the pins a bit to achieve this . The problem is in the connections if placing pressure on them improves the result.

Testimonial: "You know I've done that. even made my own connector for the drivers side hoping the fault was in the pig tail. Seems both fans have bad connections at the point of input. I guess remove the fans, clean them completely and double check each pin. Then attached the connector prior to reinstalling. If that doesn't work I guess it's new fan time. Thanks for your input."

The cooling fan on a ford car usually does not have a fuse. The cooling fans are controlled by a relay in the power distribution box inside the engine compartment. The box is usually located near the battery. Your owners manual should have a guide showing you what each relay in the box is for.

Did you check the parts before replacement? Check if there is power supply to the fan when engine is hot and the fan should start. Also check the temperature sensor or the automatic fan switch located below the radiator, it may be faulty.

Turned out to be the block connector that joins the wire to the heater fan motor. (Bad connection) removed block connector and made soldered joint. And insulated with insulation tape. (Nothing wrong with the relays,or fuses). All checked out O.K. Job done!

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!
