Replace the resistor on the fan motor. (it's on the motor under the dash where the power plugs in).

How to check if cooling fan is working properly


Start the engine with hood up. Wait for it to reach operating temperature. When it does, fan should cycle on for a few seconds, then off. If it doesn't come on, turn car off and make sure fan is free spinning-no obstructions. Be careful, if engine is warm, fan can come on and start running. If fan is free wheeling, jumper it from battery to fan connector to check fan motor. If motor works when given battery voltage but still won't come on as it should (usually the engine has to be quite warm to turn on the fan-as in stop and go traffic, or long idle times), you will have to check wiring at the fan relay, check if temperature switch to turn fan on is working properly, check if computer is signaling fan to turn on at the relay. You will probably need a wiring diagram if you don't find the problem as a bad fan motor or bad relay.

Rover 25 1.4 2004 hot engine and radiator fan problem


Yes, it is possible to install a thermostat backwards, though unlikely. If the thermostat isn't opening properly, the hot engine coolant won't be flowing over the cooling fan switch and give you high temps. I would first determine if the thermostat was opening at all, and if it is, is it opening at the proper temp. I have had many new thermostats that, while new, didn't work correctly. To check the cooling fan motor, turn on the AC(if equipped) and the fan should engage. If no AC, disconnect the cooling fan switch, and the fan should engage. Check for power and ground at the fan motor. If you have both power and ground, the fan motor is faulty

Interior fan hasn't worked properly for some time, would only work on fan's highest setting. Now we've got no air at all, regardless of setting.


Blower motor RESISTER has went bad. Its behind the blower motor; small hands are a definite plus for changing it.

Why would coolant fans not come on, fans work. Checked fans already, they work if straight wired.


Check coolant tempature sensor or engine tempature sensor or fan # 1 & fan # 2 relay modules .

My fan don't come on .


thers afew thing you can check (fan no good at all,wireing problem or faulty,fan fuse,not comunication between heat sensor and fan.i mean if the heat sensor is not working properly tthe electronic system wont let fan know when to start. so you can start checking those essues 1 by1 and may sure each 1 of them are working properly .that will be the easy way to start looking for this problem.if you find any of this working wrong , then you just found the problem resolved.good luck

Why does my car keep overheating. I changred the thermostat and that wasn't the problem. The car isn't leaking. So can you tell me what the problem is?


Since you say you changed the thermostat, and that wasn't it then possibly the cooling fan is not functioning properly. Or bad water pump,inaccurate temperature gauge, radiator core blocked or restricted. These are just the most common reasons. Good Luck and I hope this helps a little

On Load the working temperature rises


at 100 degrees c the aux fan will come on. Make sure that fan is working properly and also that your fan clutch is working properly.If this is happening with the a/c on there is an updated temp switch for aux fan operation on the receiver drier. It should be red in color. The temp is going to rise under different loads but that is a bit extreme in my opinion. Make sure you have a 50 50 mix of water and coolant and that the rad. cap seal is o.k. assuming the rest of your cooling system is in proper working order.

When the engine is hot the check engine light came on and the fan (is ok ) don't start


Hi:
How hot is it getting? Is it running hot? Is there water in it or is there a water leak? You may even have a stuck thermostat. How many fans does it have? What makes you think that the fan is working properly I mean if the air conditioner is on when it's running the fan (s) will run automatically, make sure the air isn't on when trying to see if the fan is working properly while the engine is running. Those fans comes on by use of a mercury thermal switch that is mounted in the water jacket in some cars. If the fan is workinf properly and the engine is overheating then it could be something as simple as very low water in the cooling system, if it's full and the fan is working properly you may have a bad thermostat.

Hope helpful

Car running hot


If the fan is working properly then you might want to check the INTAKE MANIFOLD for leaks or make sure the HEAD GASKET isn't blown. If the fan is NOT working properly, replace the fan and the pigtail that connects to it
