SOURCE: remote start will not let car start

The remote start won't keep the car from starting.

If you have a check engine light on currently, that will not allow the remote start to function at all.

SOURCE: car dies when heater turned on

Assuming your charging system is working properly-You probably have an idle speed control problem. Behind the battery there is an over voltage relay with red top and a 10 amp fuse in it. This relay powers the a.b.s. and the idle speed control unit. Make sure fuse is o,k, and that the relay is not corroded. Next there is 2 micro switches on the throttle linkage(you will have to remove the air cleaner. This switches are tested with an ohm meter and show continuity in one position and open in the other(don't worry if the ohm reading is high).Next to the over voltage relay there is 2 black relays(one fuel pump the other is climate comtrol) The one that says klima is the climate control. Make sure it is not corroded and a lot of times the electrical connector gets bowed and you will lose contact. This relay is really more of a control unit and gives input to the idle and c.i.s. control units as far as the a/c and heater operation. Hopefully I have been helpful

SOURCE: Overheating

When you mention the radiator having a hot upper in pipe and a cool bottom out pipe tells me that the coolant is not moving around the engine. This could be down to a water pump not working, blocked radiator, thermostat not opening. The bottom hose should be cooler than the top hose but once the engine is up to working temp which is around 85/90 degrees c for an audi the bottom still should be farly hot to touch. Hope this helps

The heater in my 2008 pontiac G6 doesn't work how do i fix it


Is the fan blowing for the vents? If not the problem is a fan issue which is much more likely. The hot water usually goes through the heater core all the time and the only reason you get heat when called for is that air is directed across the fins and coils where your engine coolant is going through. Of course the heat does not come on until the engine has heat built up in it say after about 7 minutes of run time depending on ambient temperature.

I have a 98 sunfire. should the cooling fan on the radiator come on from the initial start up?


The engine cooling fan is designed to come on when the engine reaches 225-235 degrees Fahrenheit. That is the only time it runs. Do you get a check engine light?

My son said that the temp guage was reading about 2/3 of the way hot. After he turned it off the fan kept running for a couple of minutes after he turned it off. This is on a 2007 Pontiac G6.


The fan will run after the engines has been turned off. The temperature gauge at 2/3...It normal when the engine ran for two minutes then turned off. It could have been hot day, air conditioner is running, stop and go traffic, drive really slow. many factors affect the temperature of a engines. One way the manufactures fix some of this overheating problems were to install axillary fans, also increasing the psi on the coolant system from 212 degree F, to 240-5 degree F. Buy doing this the half water/half anti-freeze will not boil off. Just make sure that the bugs are removed from the front of the radiator and the air flow isn't restricted. GB...stewbison

If running the heater keeps the engine from overheating, this is usually a sign of a fan failure. I don't want to dismiss the coolant on the ground, but if your engine is getting hot enough, it's going to boil the coolant and it will come out the overflow tube on the expansion tank.

Testing the fans is different depending on the engine you have. Electric fans are attached to the radiator and are seperate from the engine. A clutch fan is a fan that is driven off a shaft directly on your engine. If you have electric fans, turn on your AC with the engine running. The fans should spin up. If you have a clutch fan, it should spin all the time.

The easiest thing to do however, is replace your thermostat. If that sticks closed, it won't allow coolant to flow. Again, this is different depending on your engine, but if you look at your radiator, and follow the top hose back to the engine, this is were your thermostat should be.

And lastly, you can check your water pump, but this is a it subjective. You'll have to remove the serpentine belt to do this. Grab the pulley on the pump and wiggle, you shouldn't have any play. Try to turn it. It should not turn *too* easily.

2007 Pontiac G6 GT radiator fan keeps running after engine is turned off. Runs for another 4-5 mins after engine is turned off.


Heat sensor keeps blowing air thru radiator until it cools, then cuts off. Some auto do this. If it bothers you let the engine idle a few min. after you drive it and then turn car off. When you drive your car and the engine is hot it heats up even more when you turn it off because the water has quit circulating. The fan will run til it cools. It's supposed to do that.
