Look for the water temp sensor on the right hand side of the engine as you stand in front of you car. It is situated above the gearbox bell housing if it is the same engine as the Corsa Lite 1.4. If you plug it out even if the engine is cold the fan must start running. if it does you know that the electrical circuit to the fan is fine but the sensor is faulty.

2010 Lincoln MKS Heated Seat on driver's side stopped working (Light in button turns off on its' own)


The most common cause of this problem is that the drivers seat heater grid is open or burned out. That is based on 25 years as a Ford dealer technician.

Car Over Heating!! Simple Temporary FIX to get you home.


We ,, well most of us have had our cars over heat at times, and sometimes in places that we wish id didnt happen. I will detail a few tricks here to get you on your way or back home safely.

Why do cars over heat?

Simply because it gets too hot!!, There are several reasons for this ,
1.) radiator has no water
2.) radiator is leaking
3.) Thermostat isnt working
4.) Fan isnt working

If your radiator has no water then u have to shut the car off. Use cool water and pour over the radiator cover until it gets cool to your touch (NEVER OPEN A HOT RADIATOR, PRESSURE BUILDS WITH THE HOT WATER AND IT WILL EXPLODE OUT AND BURN YOU). when its cold enough for you to touch, use a damp cloth to open the radiator cap, keeping your face clear of it, Start your engine, and add water to the radiator. (Dont Add Water To a hot engine without starting it)

If your radiator is leaking then allow it to cool a bit and follow the above instructions to get it opened. Crack an egg (whole egg without shell) in the radiator before adding water. (keep engine running) the egg solidifies in the hole and plugs it enough to get you home. If you plan to repair the radiator, u must flush it out first to get rid of the egg and other contents before welding.

The thermostat!!
If this isnt working propperly the fan wont turn on, follow the instructions for the fan below.

Fan aint working
Look closely at the fan you will find you will see a tube of 2 / 3 wires connecting to its motor. it connects there via a clip. unclip it. there will be 2 wires sometimes 3 . One of them is a positive (blue,brown,red) and the other is a ground (black or black stripe) cut them , use extra wires and connect them to the positive and negative of your battery terminals. The ground can also be placed on the body of the vehicle.Remember to disconnect these wires when you get home or it will drain your battery.

There you have it. A few simple to help get you home safely in the event your vehicle overheats.

2005 chevy impala passenger side blows heat out continuously, driver's side works fine with heater & AC


You may find a reset will solve this annoying problem. The problem you have is the GM heater control unit has lost it's calibration, which can happen from time to time. The way to reset it is, start your car and turn your heater off, and shut off the car, pull out the keys. Then with vehicle off, disconnect the battery, (or batteries if it has two). Let sit for 10 minutes, then re-connect battery. Get in and start the engine, DON'T touch anything, let the heater control unit re-calibrate for at least 40 seconds, (by the clock), then try turning on the heater.
Good luck!

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca


as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

Car was overheating replaced the thermostat now the heat isnt blowing hot and the car is over heating worse it's a mitsubishi galante


Could be that fan is not kicking on. check and make sure it is connected. could also be a vapor lock. some cars require bleeding water system and if so most bleeding screws are located around thermostat housing. Call local autozone and ask if your car requires bleeding water system....NOW the overheating could be from fan not kicking on and the best way to find out is to turn on defrost and if fan is working it will kick on automaticaly. If it does kick on then this shows that fan is working fine but this does not mean that fan is running properly.The fan is controlled by a heat sensor which kicks the fan on when motor reaches a curtain heat range. If this sensor is not working it will cause car to overheat.... Could be also that waterpump is bad.Not all waterpumps leak when they go bad.Sometimes the impeler on the waterpump which is what moves water through the system simply stops working and this would cuase it to overheat.......hope this info helps and good luck...Please rate my post and if you need more info fill free to contact me...Need to find where leak is coming from also for this is more than likely the problem........

My 92 Mazda 626 is over heating!!! Help me please, I've been tirelessly trying to find the reason and have found that my radiator fan is not kicking on at all..I tried to run power straight from the...


the first thing you have to do like you said try to wire the fan and see if it comes on and if it does, the fan is out of the question. next thing is can also be a stuck thermostat, the fan switch is activated once the thermostat is opened so if the thermostat is not opening it wont be activated, so get the car on normal operating temperature and once it starts going hotter then normal, feel the radiator hose on the bottom and top and notice the difference in temperature, if it is a big difference then the thermostat is not opening and you need to change it, let me know what you come up with, good luck

I have a 1993 geo storm. The heat goes on and off when it wants to. It works when u start the car in the morning then it may not work the rest of the day.


if the fan is not blowing its probably bad connection at the motor remove fan cover check connection. No heat check coolant level.maybe thermostats bad, faulty radiator or water pump

My car is running hot within 1 mile of me driving it...my fan kicks on when it wants to....i need to know how to fix it myself


replace coolant temp, sensor and check for a bad fan relay. check relay first ! to test the fans, run a wire from positive on battery to positive on fan connection. then run a wire from negative battery post to neg, connection on fan. if the motors are ok. the fans will turn on. and make sure you have 12 volts going to fan motors. check relay first!! the fans on a typical engine only work when idling or going slow to prevent it from heating up. have a good day!! make sure there is no coolant leaks anywhere!! this will cause it to overheat also. if need be replace coolant pressure cap on overflow, might not be holding pressure.

THE BLOWER FAN ONLY WORKS ON HIGH - THIS IS THE CASE WHETHER THE HEAT OR AC IS ON.


Different speed settings on the blower motor is achieced by using resistors mounted on a circuit board usually fitted in the airstream of the system. For the highest speed setting the blower motor is connected directly to the battery (by way of the switch of course). Lower fan speeds are achieved by lowering the voltage(using a resistor between the battery and fan). These resistors get pretty hot and sometimes burn through thereby not letting power through to the fan motor. The first place to start looking would be under the passenger side dash. Look for a connector plug in the ducting close to the fan motor with at least 3 wires connected to it. On the Silverado for instance it is accessed from below the glovebox, there is a large plastic cover that needs to be removed first. It is fitted to the fan housing.
