Question about 2008 Ford Escape

1 Answer

2008 Escape Front two fans only work if I put pressure, by hand, on the connector to each fan. I know there's 14.3v +/- going to each fan when it should be, relays and fuses checked. So do I need to replace the fans? Remove and clean? Buy a sailboat and chuck it all. Anyone else have this problem? Not the sailboat dilemma, I assume many face that question everyday.

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."

SOURCE: Radiator cooling fan fuse location for Ford Taurus

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.

SOURCE: Replaced cooling fan ,cooling fan relay, and 40

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.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

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!

The engine Temp gauge got real close to "H"but went down soon as i got rolling.Also engine cooling fans not coming on. even when i engaged AC. the fans are electric. . .?


The reason that you drive and engine cools down is that cool wind is blowing in the grille in front of the car and when you stop, that natural wind stops cooling it down.
First check the fan fuse. If it is OK check the fan itself: just apply wires on the connector of the fan and attache it to the battery (dont mix "+" and "-") If fan will not start, replace the fan motor. If it starts check for the Fan Motor Relay

Location of blower resistor on 2003 grand marquis?


Hello, Just follow the wire from the heater fan under the hood. Trace the power wire from the heater fan and it will join a connector midway on the Firewall. It will have 2 screws and 1 electric connector. Tap the connector with a screwdriver handle and see if the part starts working again.

If it does not, get a used or new blower resistor. Work on a cold engine and remove the screws and connector from the part. Temporarily plug in the new part to the connector and turn the Key to run with the fan ON. It should be blowing now. Turn off the switch and put the new part where you can reach it with 1 hand.

Undo a heater hose at the top rear of the motor going in front of the opening for the switch. With 1 hand remove the hose end, then switch parts with the new blower resistor with the other hand and slide the heater hose back on its fitting. Tighten the heater hose.

Then secure the new part into the Firewall and fasten its connector. You should have lost little Antifreeze by working on a cold engine as the hydraulic lock kept the fluid from running out.

This should be all you need to do except clean any spills away.

There are 3 sensors in arow I found the sensor to temp gage witch of the two remaining sensors turn on fan


On this model, the fan is controlled by inputs to a combination relay box that is located under the air cleaner and battery tray. These are know to go bad after years. It looks like a black metal flat box with a handful of small wires going into a connector that has a single bolt in the center. I would also check the fan motor connector, because they are known to melt down and the fan stop working. Most replacement fans have a pigtail harness and it is advised to solder the wires. Crush connectors will fail.

Front fan just stopped working...back one is fine.


{: ) It could be the BLWR fuse 40amp at the underhood fuseblock, a faulty blower resistor assembly, or the front blower motor itself.
