The radiator fans are controlled by a thermostatic switch. When your Chrysler is stopped after it has been running, the fans will continue to operate until the engine cools down. If the fans run continuously, that thermostatic switch may be defective.

I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude


Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

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.

Sould the second radiator fan along with the first?


I would presume you are meaning an electric fan that has two fans together. Both fans dont always run at the same time. One is a high speed fan and the other a low speed fan together in the same shroud. Engine temp determines if and when they turn on. *****CAUTION!!!!! Fans can turn on any time the key is in the on position even if the engine isnt running. Do not put your finger in the fan or handle them unless the Neg (-) battery terminal is disconnected.*****

What makes it overheat


I would guess that you are having a circulation problem but telling you why will require testing. It would be related to the hoses, the radiator, electric fan, or the water-pump. If the engine has been neglected then it could have to do with the antifreeze or maybe a clog inside the engine.

Z28 95 running hot


Is the fan running or do you have an electric fan? If fan isnt running or never comes on no matter what you do it will never run much cooler. If fan is good then you could flush the radiator a couple of times and that will help but if fan isnt working it wont last long

Temperature gauge


no,not "into"red,but close to it. if it goes to red,you might have a failing thermostat. let me xplain. -a failing thermostat will either make your motor run too hot,or too cold,(the temp you see on your dash is for the motor)
NOW,you also have a temp sensor for the radiator fan,which is on the radiator.
SO,if the motor thermostat isnt opening,the rad' isnt getting the hot water(to cool off),in turn,the fan will come on later!!(hotter)
in conclusion,replace the engine thermostat,(it's cheap$$)

1993 mercury sable


if you are sure all of the above is correctly installed then the only othet thing i can think of if it isnt loosing coolant is either the guage or the sender unit is faulty,
if its not loosing coolant and the radiator isnt filled with muck then it really cant be anything else.
one other thing might sound silly but check that the thermo fan if its got one is coming on or if there is a plastic bag or something blocking the radiator
